Surgical Errors Can Have Tragic Outcomes

Surgical errors

Any time a person decides to have surgery, they must think about the risk-benefit analysis. However, when people think about what could go wrong during surgery, they often fail to consider one of the most critical parts of the equation — the surgeons, doctors, and nurses.

Sadly, doctors and hospitals often conceal evidence of medical errors. The deep pockets of medical providers, medical facilities, and their associated insurance providers throw significant time and money into defending every alleged instance of medical negligence. Our San Antonio-based surgical error lawyer focuses exclusively on medical malpractice cases.

Even the smallest of surgical errors can impact a patient for the rest of his or her life. And, surgical errors can include negligence as early on in the treatment process as during your preoperative care.

If surgical or anesthesiology malpractice left your loved one injured or dead, it is important to work with an experienced San Antonio surgical error attorney who can help you receive the compensation you need. When you contact the Law Offices of Glenn W. Cunningham, that is exactly what you will find. We have over 25 years of experience handling Texas medical malpractice matters, and we are committed to holding doctors accountable for their mistakes. We represent individuals who were injured by surgical mistakes, including:

  • Anesthesia errors
  • Failure to recognize post-surgical complications
  • Leaving medical devices or instruments in the body
  • Misplaced implants
  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Paralysis after surgery
  • Unacceptable complications
  • Unnecessary surgery

Because there is always inherent risk when someone undergoes surgery, the mistakes must be clear-cut in order for a Texas medical malpractice lawsuit case to be viable. Contact us for a case evaluation.

The insurance companies that defend doctors often have an easy defense regarding surgical errors; however, some mistakes can only be attributed to negligence. For example, if a surgeon does not monitor the carbon dioxide and oxygen saturate levels of a patient, the results can quickly become fatal.
