Despite modern advancements in the medical industry, there are still inherent risks when it comes to surgical procedures.

What are Some Types of Surgical Mistakes?

If a doctor, a nurse, or other hospital personnel make even a slight error while prepping for surgery or during the actual procedure, the patient can suffer devastating and potentially fatal injuries or illness. Mistakes caused by fatigue, recklessness, miscommunication or an oversight on a patient’s paperwork can lead to common surgical errors, such as the following:

  • Unintentional lacerations
  • Negligent performance of the operation
  • Surgical instruments left inside the patient,
  • Failure to identify complications during procedure,
  • Wrong patient surgery, and
  • Wrong-site surgery.

An already risky procedure can quickly result in catastrophic injuries to a patient, particularly in the event that the patient suffers infection, blood loss, brain damage, or worse.

How is Medical Malpractice Proved in Texas?

In order to have a valid medical malpractice case based on surgical error, the patient or surviving family member must prove that the patient suffered injuries or illness due to negligence. While there are inherent risks involved with any type of surgery, a mistake does not automatically indicate that a surgeon is liable for resulting damages.

A medical professional or the hospital staff may be liable for violating the accepted standards of care before, during, or after an operation. Common types of surgical negligence include:

  • Poor preparation or planning before operation,
  • Miscommunication or misidentifying a patient or type of surgery,
  • Providing inaccurate medication or misreading drug dosages,
  • Fatigue or working under the influence of drugs, and
  • Neglect.

We will gather evidence of medical negligence on behalf of our clients and work tireless to ensure that the responsible party is held accountable.
