Surgical Error Attorneys in St. Louis

Seek Justice & File Your Medical Malpractice Claim Today

When it comes to acts of hospital negligence, a surgical error is one of the worst medical mistakes that can possibly be made. While a surgical error doesn’t necessarily indicate medical malpractice, it is still a preventable mistake that can lead to catastrophic consequences and even patient death.

Common examples of surgical errors include:

  • Harming muscles and ligaments
  • Leaving surgical equipment inside patients
  • Operating on the wrong patient
  • Accidentally damaging tissues and nerves
  • Operating on the wrong body parts

You have a right to seek compensation for injuries caused by surgical errors. Contact Buchanan, Williams & O’Brien, P.C. if you’re interested in filing a medical malpractice claim. We can help you seek compensation to cover your medical expenses and any loss of income you’ve experienced due to a surgical error.

Call our Brentwood medical malpractice attorneys at (314) 635-7606 if you’ve been harmed by a surgical error and believe your medical care provider has violated the medical standard of care.

Common Surgical Errors

Unfortunately, surgical errors are not uncommon, and the side effects are often devastating. The smallest mistake can cost unsuspecting patients their lives. Responsible surgical teams take extensive precautions to ensure patients receive the best possible care. However, most surgeons are exhausted and overworked because hospitals are often understaffed. The risk of a surgical error occurring rises exponentially when exhausted, overwhelmed, or incompetent surgeons staff a surgical team. When surgeons aren’t functioning at their best, the likelihood of insufficient planning and poor communication leads to even more opportunity for mistakes.

Consequences of surgical errors include, but are not limited to:

  • Death
  • Brain damage
  • Loss of limb
  • Infection
  • Organ damage
  • Chronic pain
