When your loved one becomes ill, it is typical to have the individual’s medical care provider discuss a treatment plan to identify the most efficient way of treating the health condition. For many the course of treatment involves surgery to correct the issue. Although this may evoke fear in many, these procedures often are completed without any medical complications. Each year, there are thousands of operations completed that save lives and improve the overall health of individuals.
With technological advances, surgical procedures are becoming more common and much safer. However, any type of medical procedure carries some level of risk, even if the surgical procedure is routine. Human error is a concern in any medical procedure.

The attorneys at Newland & Newland, LLP are experienced attorneys who are happy to arrange a risk-free initial consultation to discuss the facts and circumstances surrounding your case.
Medical Malpractice and Surgical Errors
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical care professional provides a service that falls below the standard of care used by other medical professionals performing the same or similar job functions. It is important to understand that medical malpractice does not occur simply because a medical procedure did not go as intended, was not successful, or caused additional harm. Although complications arise and are unfortunate, not all cases are medical malpractice.
However, there are many cases of medical malpractice that are the result of negligence, including:
- Anesthesia errors
- Failing to remove medical equipment
- Nerve damage after surgery
- Performing a specific type of surgery on the wrong patient
- Performing surgery in the wrong location
