Surgical errors, a tragic form of personal injury

Having a surgical procedure is almost always a big deal, at least in the mind of the patient. Even the most minor of procedures is frightening, but most people trust in their surgeons to be cautious, to be attentive and to do everything possible to remedy the medical problem. Unfortunately, some surgical suite personnel fall short of even the basic quality of care standards, resulting in surgical errors that cause further damage.

Make no mistake, surgical errors and other types of medical malpractice are a type of personal injury. Victims in Maryland can pursue compensation for the damages they have incurred through the state's justice system. While it is true that complications may arise during any surgical procedure, there are also problems that arise as a direct result of medical personnel negligence. It is always wise to question why a surgery went wrong, and it is even more important to do so if the patient suspects that negligence was a factor.

Some of the most common preventable surgical errors include operating on the wrong body site, leaving a foreign object inside the patient and performing the wrong procedure on a patient. In fact, these errors are so preventable that researchers refer to them as "never events" because they should never occur.

Victims of preventable botched surgeries will benefit from legal representation when attempting to recover compensation for any injuries they have suffered. The attorneys of the Cohen, Snyder, Eisenberg and Katzenberg law firm are familiar with all kinds of medical malpractice cases, including surgical errors.
