Passionate Advocates for Your Rights

Surgical Error Lawyer in San Francisco

Call (888) 831-8448 If You Suffered from a Surgery Error in California

Going into surgery is a concerning proposition and it can lead to even the most stoic human being feeling apprehensive and uncertain. We place tremendous trust in the hospital, its surgeons and staff to care for us and successfully complete our surgical procedure.

When that trust is violated and an irresponsible or careless action causes actual harm, you need an established and capable legal team by your side to aggressively fight for your rights. At Bostwick & Peterson, our firm has access to the finest doctors in the nation to methodically investigate your case.

Types of Errors

Our firm will work closely with you every step of the way making sure that you understand all of your legal options. A surgical error can lead to lost income, additional medical expenses or even result in a life-changing medical condition.

There are many potential surgical errors that can occur, including:

  • The performance of the wrong surgery. As extreme as this seems, it does happen. For example, in a bypass operation, a surgeon may bypass the wrong artery.
  • A surgeon that does not immediately recognize and react to a mistake can put a patient at risk.
  • The wrong type of anesthesia or too much anesthesia can lead to permanent brain damage or even wrongful death.
  • If a surgical incision is not properly closed and cleaned a severe infection can result.
  • In some cases, a medical instrument or sponge is left behind.
