Common Surgical Errors

Surgical errors take many forms, each potentially devastating and life-altering. Common types include the following:

  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Incorrect procedure performed
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Unintentional organ damage
  • Leaving surgical instruments inside a patient

Each of these errors can lead to severe complications, long-term health issues, or tragically, death. If you or a loved one has been a victim of such errors, a surgical error attorney in Lafayette can guide you through the complex process of filing a malpractice claim.

Seeking Just Compensation for Surgical Errors

Victims of surgical errors may seek various types of compensation. This could cover medical expenses resulting from the error, lost wages due to time off work, and future earnings if the error leads to disability. Compensation for pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life may also be pursued. In tragic cases of fatal surgical errors, the victim's family might be entitled to wrongful death damages as well. Navigating these compensation claims can be challenging, which is why the expertise of surgical error attorneys in Lafayette is invaluable.

  • "Mr. Hovde and his staff were stellar in the way they handled our case!"
    Mr. Rick Hovde was recommended to us by our personal attorney and a customer of ours with our family business. Mr. Hovde was also featured as one of the top 3 personal injury attorneys on the front of the Indianapolis Monthly publication. A few years back, I suffered the personal loss of my wife due to what I believe was medical malpractice. Mr. Hovde and his staff were stellar in the way they handled our case! Winning a medical malpractice case is no easy task, but he won ours. In my opinion, he is the best at what he does. I appreciated his attention to detail and was very impressed with his resolve to do the best job possible for a favorable outcome. I would strongly recommend Rick Hovde to anyone needing a great malpractice attorney.
