Burlington Surgical Error Lawyers

Obvious Surgeons’ Errors

Certain types of surgery mistakes are obvious to anyone who reviews the facts— namely:

  • Operation on the wrong body part
  • Foreign object left in body

If you were harmed by a surgery error such as having a surgical instrument sewn into your body, it is very likely that you will be compensated if you bring a claim. However, your attorney’s experience and skills may determine how satisfactory the final settlement or verdict will be. Talk to a medical malpractice lawyer with a focus on recovering compensation for the injured and a track record of success.

More Challenging Cases Involving Surgery Mistakes in New Jersey

Other types of surgical errors are more difficult to prove negligence for. Some examples are:

  • Internal organs accidentally nicked during surgery
  • Anesthesia error
  • Nerve damage during back surgery
