What makes us qualified for your case?
Surgical complications happen every year. In fact, research estimates that hospital errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S, with an estimated 440,000 deaths each year due to preventable hospital errors.Surgical errors can leave patients with severe injuries to the brain and spinal cord, nerve damage, paralysis, and permanent disability. All too often, errors in the operating room result in wrongful death, leaving family members with grief, anger, and financial hardship.
We handle a wide range of surgery error cases, including those involving:
“Never events” are what researchers call surgical mistakes that should never happen, and are usually caused by clerical or communication errors. During a study conducted from 1990-2010, results showed there were nearly 10,000 paid malpractice claims for “never event” cases, totaling $1.3 billion.
Most medical centers have patient safety procedures to help prevent these kinds of errors, but even with their precautions, mistakes can still happen. New technology, like surgical sponges with radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags that can be detected with a scanner, will hopefully limit those mistakes.
