Common Surgical Errors
and Causes

There are several types of errors made before, during and after a surgical procedure that might rise to the level of malpractice, including:

Surgical Malpractice

Powers & Santola’s medical malpractice attorneys can help if you or a loved one has been injured by a possible surgical error. We will help you obtain medical records and review them with highly qualified medical experts. If we discover evidence of a preventable surgical error, we can initiate a claim on your behalf.

Investigating a negative surgical outcome requires analyzing large volumes of technical data. There are also strict statutes of limitations on medical malpractice claims. It is best to begin the preliminary work of gathering and reviewing records for a potential claim as soon as possible.

A medical malpractice lawsuit based on surgical error would seek compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering and, in cases of fatal error, wrongful death damages.
