Surgical errors injure and kill thousands of people every year. While there is some accepted risk when undergoing surgery, patients are entitled to a standard of care that reduces risks and helps ensure positive results. When negligent or careless healthcare workers fail to provide this care and injury is the result, victims have every right to hold the responsible parties accountable and seek significant compensation.

Types of Surgical Error
Surgical error can conjure images of foreign objects such as medical tools or sponges left inside of a body. And while this does occur, it is far from the only type of surgical error that can result in serious or fatal injury.
Some of the most common forms of surgical error include:
- Wrong site or wrong patient surgery
- Over or under medication
- Damage to internal organs
- Tissue and nerve damage
- Unnecessary surgery
