Surgical Malpractice You Deserve a Voice in the Courtroom

Dallas Surgical Malpractice Attorney

Did You Suffer Because of a Surgery Error? Call Aldous \ Walker Today!

While surgical procedures are an important part of American (and international) healthcare, they are inherently dangerous, given their nature. Coupled with the fact that doctors are human, surgical mistakes are inevitable and often lead to extensive and irreparable damage.

It is estimated that at least 4,000 serious surgical errors occur every year. Of all medical malpractice cases filed in the United States, 50% were brought against surgeons. While patients may be informed of the risks, surgical mistakes often occur that lie beyond the scope of reasonable dangers. If you were injured because of a surgical mistake, you may have grounds for compensation and should speak with a qualified attorney immediately.

Causes of Surgical Malpractice

No two surgeries are the same. As such, the reasons for surgical errors can vary from patient to patient. However, there are some surgical errors that are more common than others:

  • Failure to follow safety protocol
  • Incompetence
  • Lack of proper training
  • Fatigue
  • Substance abuse

When you come to Aldous / Walker, our Dallas surgical malpractice lawyers will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your injuries to determine why the mistake occured and who should be held responsible. Our firm has decades of experience and extensive resources to put towards your case.

Are You the Victim of a Surgical Never Event?

There are moments when surgeons commit unforgivable mistakes. These are called “never events.” Like the name suggests, these events should never occur. If a doctor does commit a never event, they can cause serious damage that may not be repairable.

  • Wrong Site Surgery – Before a surgeon operates, they need to make sure they are performing surgery on the correct body part or site. Performing on the wrong site can cause serious harm because that part of the body did not need medical attention. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality estimates one out of every 112,000 surgeries happen on the wrong site.
  • Left-Behind Errors – Surgeons have been known to leave objects such as sponges, scalpels, and scissors in the body. Not only is this unacceptable, this can cause serious injuries that the patient could have avoided. Studies report one in every 7,600 surgeries result with an object being left behind in the body.
  • Surgery on the Wrong Patient – Before a doctor performs a procedure, they need to make sure they have the right patient and know their medical history. If the surgeons are careless, they can perform an operation on the wrong person, which can prove fatal.

If a doctor commits a never event transgression, they must be held accountable for their mistake. With the appropriate legal representation, you can seek the compensation you deserve for your injuries or for the preventable loss of your family member.
