Whether you are undergoing quadruple bypass surgery or getting your appendix removed, any surgical procedure is considered a significant matter. The last thing on your mind is suffering further injury due to a medical error caused by the surgeon, nurse, or any other healthcare provider.

If you’ve suffered an injury due to the negligence of a medical professional, DiPasquale Moore is committed to helping you pursue the compensation and justice you deserve. Our Kansas City personal injury lawyers can investigate the incident, collect crucial evidence, negotiate with insurance providers, as well as protect your rights and best interests throughout the entire legal process.

How Do I Know If Medical Malpractice Has Occurred?

A surgical error is a preventable mistake that occurs during surgery. But given the complicated nature of invasive procedures, there are many risks involved in any type of surgery, which is why a patient often signs a form before undergoing surgery and understands the risks.

There are three elements which are essential for a successful medical malpractice claim: breach of duty, injury, and damages. First, the surgeon’s work must fall below expected and accepted standards of care, breaching the duty of care owed to the patient. Next, the patient sustains an injury due to this breach. Lastly, the injury the patient suffered has a negative impact on various aspects of life – physically, emotionally, financially, and psychologically.

The following are common examples of surgical errors:

  • Perform surgery on the wrong body part
  • Perform unnecessary surgery
  • Negligent damage to the body parts not being operated on
  • Reckless decisions under pressure
  • Discharge a patient prematurely
  • Failure to follow up with patient
  • Misread or ignore lab results
  • Negligent use of surgery tools
  • Leave surgical instruments in the patient
  • Failure to devise a surgical plan
  • Inattentive staff or doctors
