Diagnostic, Surgical Errors: Problems That Still Occur

You expect the best medical care when you visit your physician for a checkup. The same goes for when you are wheeled into the operating room for surgery. Alas, that doesn't always happen. Time and time again, we learn about patients who have faced the consequences of diagnostic and surgical errors committed by health care professionals. The results can be painful, shocking and life-altering.

Medical errors may lead to unnecessary surgeries and health complications that last a lifetime or even prove fatal.

Severe Complications May Result From Medical Errors

Incompetence and poor communication between health care team members are among the reasons for diagnostic errors and surgical errors. There have been extreme cases, too. For example, a patient diagnosed with a minor ailment such as heartburn actually had a severe heart condition. The medical professionals just plain missed the diagnosis. And we know about the countless times in which items such as sponges and surgical instruments were left inside a patient. Or the times when surgeons operate on the wrong patient or the wrong side of the patient.

Such scenarios can lead to pain, infections and death. We have the skill, understanding and resources to assist you in your medical malpractice case. We know how such an injury can be debilitating and prevent you from fulfilling your family responsibilities.
