Surgical Mistakes

Florida Medical Malpractice Lawyers – Surgical Mistakes

Case Evaluation Form

Surgical mistakes that cause injury may give rise to medical malpractice claims. If a doctor, nurse, or hospital has been negligent in operation, and as a result your condition has worsened, you deserve to be compensated. Here are some examples of surgical malpractice:

  • Wrong-site surgery – operating in the wrong area of the body. 
  • Surgical instrument left in the body – retractors, sponges, and surgical towels all have been left in patients’ bodies following surgery. 
  • Misdiagnosis issues, such as surgery unrelated to the patient's correct diagnosis. 
  • Wrong patient surgery.

Negligence in operation can be especially difficult to prove in court. Making a claim of surgical error requires owning sophisticated medical knowledge and hiring prestigious medical experts to testify convincingly about physician neglect. The experienced Florida surgical error attorneys of Levin Papantonio Thomas Mitchell Rafferty & Proctor, P.A. have both the knowledge and the resources to build a solid lawsuit of medical negligence that will get you the money you need to fully address your medical problems.
