Surgical Error Claims

Surgical procedures are complex and can be very invasive, which result in difficult and lengthy recovery periods. Catastrophic injury can occur if the surgical procedure is performed incorrectly or if the surgeon, anesthesiologist, nurses, or others act negligently in pre- and post-operative care, leaving the patient debilitated. All surgeons are expected to uphold current professional and legal standards for providing care. You can pursue a medical malpractice claim if your surgeon acted negligently resulting in unexpected injury.

At Wagners, we stand up for those who have been injured as the result of surgeon negligence in NS, NB and PEI. We have been successful in representing clients in emergency room error claims, misdiagnosis cases and many more areas of medical malpractice.

Causes Of Surgical Errors

Causes of surgical errors can include:

  • Improperly diagnosing a condition/injury/findings during surgery
  • Not recognizing surgical complications
  • Improper monitoring or testing after surgery
  • Anaesthesiology errors
  • Perforation or damage caused to other internal organs
  • Medication and prescription errors
  • Pathology errors

Because of the level of invasiveness of many types of surgeries, errors often lead to catastrophic injuries or even fatalities. Such errors can also lead to damaged organs, internal bleeding and additional problems that require surgeries to fix the mistake. We at Wagners have in-depth knowledge of both the legal and medical aspects of complex surgical error claims, allowing us to take a highly strategic approach to representing our clients. We are here as advocates for you, regardless of the level of complexity of the situation.

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
