Surgical Errors

Examples of Surgeon Mistakes

The Philadelphia surgical errors attorneys at Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman, P.C., home of MyPhillyLawyer, handle cases for victims of many different types of surgical errors, including:

Wrong surgery: Sadly, wrong surgeries happen more frequently than one would think. This can lead to prolonged recovery, additional surgeries, infections and other complications.
Wrong site: Did the surgeon perform the right procedure on the wrong body part?

Anesthesia errors: Dosage errors, delay in delivery, mistakes in intubation, failure to monitor the patient and failure to recognize complications can all be deadly.

Unsterile equipment: Infections due to unsterilized equipment put patients at risk.

Lacerations and punctures: Nicks or punctures to organs, muscles, nerves or other internal structures may not be noticed until it is too late.

Instruments and sponges left behind: Hospital policies call for counting surgical instruments before and after the procedure, but mistakes still happen. These mistakes can lead to serious infection and death.

Post-surgical errors: When complications are not recognized or treated in a timely way, the results can be extremely dangerous for patients.

Did you suffer significant harm because of a surgical error? Did a member of your family die because of a doctor’s/surgeon’s mistake?

“They're really good people”

They are a law firm that cares. They are loving. They are compassionate. They are honest and anything they can do for you they will do. They will go the extra mile.

- Lillie R. Daniels

I always knew what they were doing. They stayed right with me the whole time. They don't make you feel like they're the lawyers and you're the client. They're not pretentious. They asked all about my family. They're more than just lawyers. They're really good people.

- Karen Vick
