Surgery Errors can lead to Malpractice Claims

Different types of dangerous surgical errors

A study conducted in the department of John Hopkins University in 2016 found that an estimated 250,000 people die due to medical errors every year. A portion of these happen within the operating rooms because of surgical errors and resulting complications. The consequences of surgical errors can be catastrophic to the patient who placed their body and life in the surgeon’s hands. The most common surgical mistakes and complications that may cause death or injury are:

  • Anesthesia errors – dosage, negligence in monitoring patient
  • The wrong site – surgery in the incorrect body part
  • Unskillful procedure – following an improper procedure
  • Surgery performed on the wrong patient 
  • Foreign objects left inside patient
  • Injuries to the nervous system or other types result from wrong surgical procedures
  • Infections resulted from carelessness

While there are risks involved with surgical procedures that patients should be able to accept prior to undergoing the procedure, surgeons and medical professionals remain accountable in the event that they commit mistakes, big or small. Even though these legal matters are complicated, lawsuits based on surgical errors may benefit the victim and their families by providing an amount of money required to cover medical expenses and income loss in addition to suffering and pain. In addition, medical negligence claims can help make medical professionals accountable for their mistakes in order to avoid further injury to other patients by unskilled doctors or hospitals.

    About 4 months ago my wife got a job that came with housing. After going over all details and making plans for about 4 months prior to moving with management we packed up our whole lives, our pets, dropped some side jobs we had, and moved … More to the property where the job was located. After a few weeks things started getting very strange with management and "team" and after 2 full months everything that was planned in detail prior to moving to this property fell apart. After trying to discuss in person with management and then trying to discuss through email with management my wife was fired and we were given 5 days to pack up and leave the property. We had to start our lives over again. We immediately contacted Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and worked with Ryan Getz & David Cassidy who are absolutely incredible at what they do! They were able to help us get off the property in a reasonable way and receive a settlement for all trouble caused by this "business". This was an incredibly stressful and scary situation but David and Ryan stayed in contact with us, were extremely patient, professional, soothing and just overly fantastic. If you are having any type of issue with an employement situation and being treated unfairly I highly recommend working with Ryan & David! I am so thankful they were able to take our case and help us through that mess. This was our first time having to hire legal help and I am just so grateful we found David and Ryan. In the future should we need any additional legal help we will absolutely be contacting them again. Thank you both so much!

    My wife and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Vlasac and Shmaruk took care of everything. They walked us through the process and took care of all the paperwork. They reached a settlement and we were happy. Glad to put that … More behind us and glad we used Vlasac and Shmaruk to help us get the money we needed for a new car and to get our medical bills paid. Thanks for everything you did!!!!
