Jacksonville Surgical Error Attorneys

Fighting Surgical Malpractice in Florida & Across the U.S.

Some of the most devastating medical errors can occur during surgery. Operating on the wrong body part, leaving an object behind in a patient, and oxygen fires are just a few frightening examples of what can go wrong if a surgeon, nurse, or other healthcare professional is negligent in any way.

At Spohrer Dodd, we are here to set things right. Our trial lawyers have over 150 years of combined legal experience. We work as a team to handle surgical error claims, drawing upon our individual strengths and areas of expertise to provide more effective representation – even in the most complex and challenging cases. As Jacksonville surgical malpractice attorneys, we fight for patients and families across Florida and throughout the country. We also take on military surgical malpractice claims for veterans, service members, and their families.

Take a powerful stand against surgical errors. Call Spohrer Dodd at (904) 637-7721 or contact us online for the skilled legal representation you need.

What is Considered a Surgical Error?

Surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and other staff involved in the surgery are required to provide an acceptable standard of care in every aspect of the procedure. Any deviation from standard care, if this causes harm to a patient, may be considered surgical malpractice.

Surgical errors may occur in relation to preoperative, perioperative, or postoperative care. While any surgery has inherent risks, these should be explained to the patient so he or she can make an informed decision about moving forward with the procedure. Failure to inform a patient of the inherent risks of their procedure can also be a form of medical malpractice.

What are the Most Common Types of Surgical Errors?

  • Operating on the wrong body part or the wrong side of the body
  • Accidental perforation of an organ, nerve, or other tissue
  • Leaving an instrument, sponge, or other object behind in a patient’s body
  • Lack of informed consent prior to performing surgery
  • Administering too little or too much anesthesia

These mistakes can cause brain damage, infection, disfigurement, organ damage, and even death. If you have been injured or have lost someone you love due to surgical malpractice, Spohrer Dodd is here to help you. Our Jacksonville surgical error lawyers can expose wrongdoing to help you seek justice.
