Surgical Errors in Dothan, Alabama

Surgical errors are responsible for a very high number of deaths in hospitals across the United States annually. A surgical error can occur when a surgeon or other member of the surgical team fails to provide an acceptable standard of care for their patients resulting in injury or death.

Statistics reveal that one-half of all medical malpractice lawsuits filed in this country involve surgical procedures. These allegations of surgical malpractice involve pre-operative procedures, surgical procedures and post-surgery recovery care and treatment. Every poor outcome in a surgical procedure should not be considered surgical error, however, because there are risks involved with all surgical procedures.

When the wrong surgical procedure is performed, surgery is performed on the wrong limb or body part, medical instruments are left inside your body, or brain damage occurs due to anesthesia mistakes, that has to be considered surgical malpractice or error and outside the realm of acceptable risk.

The surgical malpractice attorneys at The Cochran Firm want to ensure you receive fair financial compensation for the injuries suffered in the case of surgical error for medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of income and loss of possible future earning potential for yourself and your loved ones.
