Baltimore Surgical Error Lawyers
Experienced Medical Malpractice Lawyers Fighting for Victims of Surgical Errors
All surgeries involve a certain amount of danger — a blood clot could occur, you could have an allergic reaction to a medication you were administered, or you could have a reaction to anesthesia. As such, surgeons and other hospital staff members must do everything possible to prevent surgical errors and protect those under their care from unnecessary dangers. When they fail to do so and you are harmed, the Maryland surgical error lawyers of LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton, P.A. are here to hold healthcare professionals and hospitals accountable for their actions. We are firm believers that patients should not need to fear that their surgeons or other hospital staff members will make errors while under their care.
Our Maryland malpractice lawyers have extensive experience settling and trying claims involving surgical errors. Since 1987, our team has handled cases involving:
- Anesthesia overdoses
- Incorrect surgical procedures performed on a patient
- Infections resulting from lack of proper treatment following a surgery
- Poor pre-operative planning on the part of the healthcare provider
- Prolonged surgeries
- Surgeries causing damage to other internal organs
- Surgeries performed on the wrong body part
- Surgeries performed on the wrong person
- Surgeries resulting in nerve damage or paraplegia/quadriplegia
- Surgeries where foreign objects were unintentionally left within the body
- Surgical malpractice involving general failure to provide the accepted standard of care
- Unnecessary surgeries performed because of misdiagnosis
Our goal in every case is to help you receive compensation for your pain and suffering as well as any additional economic expenses incurred as a result of the healthcare provider or hospital’s mistake.
Surgical Errors: More Common Than They Should Be
Maryland’s Office of Health Care Quality has published numerous reports warning healthcare professionals of the dangers of surgical errors involving the retention of foreign objects in a patient’s body, yet such dangerous mistakes continue to occur. In fact, the Office of Health Care Quality reported that, in 2016, there were 10 instances of foreign objects left in body cavities after surgery, a number which is consistent with the previous year. That same report cited 10 instances of surgeries performed on the wrong body part or on the wrong patient which has doubled over the past two years*.
