Surgical mistakes aren’t as rare as you may think

On Behalf of | Mar 29, 2015 | Surgical Errors |

Imagine that after a trip to the doctor’s office, you are informed that you need to have a serious surgical procedure performed on you. You are understandably nervous, but you don’t actually expect anything bad to happen during the surgery. On the day of your procedure, you go through all the pre-op steps — and then finally, you are given anesthesia and you are out like a light.

When you wake up, it seems as though everything is okay. You don’t feel great — but who does after surgery? — though you can’t help but feel like a big stressor in your life has been resolved. However, nurses and doctors rush into your hospital room and inform you that a critical error was made and that you have to be rushed into surgery.

Sadly, these incidents are more common than you might think. They’re still rare enough that you shouldn’t be worried about a surgical procedure. But it’s not impossible for something to go wrong during the course of your surgery.

Should something go wrong during surgery, you need an attorney by your side to help you with the potential lawsuit that you may pursue against the medical professional or medical institutions that were negligent in your case.

At Judy Snyder, we have more than 40 years of experience dealing with medical malpractice cases. No matter how complicated your case may be, and no matter how complex the medical procedure or medical conditions, we will help protect your rights and  give you the support you need during this critical time.
