Common Surgical Malpractice Cases

When you undergo a surgical procedure, surgeons and other healthcare professionals have a responsibility to provide you with the best care possible. Sometimes, however, the negligence of a medical staff member or team can cause unnecessary and otherwise preventable harm.

Surgical malpractice claims are often filed due to negligent mistakes, such as the following:

  • Surgery being performed on the wrong body part
  • Surgery being performed on the wrong patient
  • The wrong surgical procedure being performed
  • The death of an otherwise healthy patient during surgery or immediately post-operative

The consequences of these mistakes can change your life forever, leaving you permanently disabled or in a state of grief over the loss of a loved one. While you're coping with the personal ramifications, our experienced medical malpractice attorneys can handle the legalities.

Filing a Surgical Malpractice Claim in Connecticut

Though no amount of monetary compensation can make up for a missing limb or the loss of a loved one, it's important to consider how the financial aspects can impact your life.

You may be able to pursue compensation for the following:

  • Past and future medical care and expenses related to permanent disability or disfigurement
  • Past and future medical care and expenses related to permanent disability or disfigurement
  • Past and future income lost if you are unable to perform your work duties
  • Emotional damages, such as stress, embarrassment, depression or strained relationships
  • Loss of family, social, and educational experiences

When you file a surgical malpractice claim, our medical malpractice attorneys may be able to pursue compensation for all of these damages, and in some extraordinary cases, you may also be entitled to punitive damages.
