Louisville Wrong Site Surgery Lawyers

Before a surgeon performs any operation on a patient’s body, the patient has to place a large amount of trust and faith in the surgeon’s knowledge, skill, and ability, not to mention their professionalism. No matter what the operation is, all surgery is a very invasive and can be considered a very complicated process that comes with a number of risks. Unfortunately, when a medical professional behaves recklessly or fails to adequately follow the appropriate standards of care, devastating errors can occur. One such mistake, although rare, is wrong site surgery.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of a medical professional’s negligent actions and suffered from wrong site surgery, you may be eligible for financial compensation to pay for medical expenses and other losses. Discuss your legal options by calling a Louisville wrong site surgery lawyer of the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050.

Causes of Wrong Site Surgery

When a surgeon operates on the wrong part of the body, such as opening up the wrong leg for ACL reconstruction or the wrong arm for rotator cuff reparation, the patient could suffer from a number of health risks, such as delayed treatment or risk of going under anesthesia a second time. Some actions that may increase the chance of wrong site surgery include the following:

  • Multiple surgeons in the operating room or on the case
  • Performing more than one procedure
  • Lack of time
  • Transferring the patient to another room or between surgeons

A wrong site surgery is an entirely preventable medical error that, with adequate care and attention should not happen. Thus, when such an egregious error does harm an unsuspecting patient, the responsible medical professionals should be held accountable.
