Maryland Surgical Mistakes
Negligent surgical mistakes result in medical malpractice claims because the resulting pain and financial damages are generally long term and significant. If any doctor, nurse or hospital has been negligent with your care and this negligence resulted in a worsening of your condition, you may be entitled to significant compensation.
Some examples of surgical mistakes or malpractice include:
- Operating on the wrong site of the body
- Leaving surgical instruments inside the body after surgery
- Performing an unneeded surgery related to misdiagnosis
- Performing surgery on the wrong patient or wrong body part
Proving a case of surgical mistake or negligence in court can be a difficult task. Experts will need to go over many pages of medical records in order to build a solid case against the medical parties, doctors and surgeons associated with your care.
Personal injury malpractice attorneys have the medical expertise needed to provide a compelling case and in turn provide you with the monetary compensation you deserve in order to take care of any further medical problems or long term medical expenses related to the negligence.
You should never have to fight the battle of surgical mistakes or negligence alone. Call our medical malpractice personal injury lawyers today, and let us help you recover what is rightfully yours.

Surgical mistakes are far more common than many patients believe. Thousands of mistakes occur every year with some mistakes resulting in permanent damage to the body, brain damage, organ damage, coma, heart problems and even, death.
While many surgical mistakes happen before or during the surgery, mistakes can also occur after surgery in the post-operative stage. Post-operative surgical mistakes can lead to infection, sepsis, a delay in healing and other potentially life threatening events.
After a surgery, healing is supposed to begin. For a patient who has been a victim of a surgical mistake, this negligence prevents both physical and emotional healing in a timely manner.
Do not wait, call our medical malpractice personal injury lawyers today to discuss the details surrounding your medical malpractice case.
Doctors, nurses and hospitals have a duty to provide healing care in a competent and appropriate fashion. When this care is riddled with mistakes, you are the one who is left to pay the consequences for their negligence.
