Orthopedic Surgery Errors, New Jersey
Orthopedic surgery, like any invasive procedure, can be a high-risk procedure, and must be undertaken with the greatest of care. When you consented to orthopedic surgery, you no doubt did so trusting in the competency of your surgeon. You had every right to expect that an orthopedic surgeon would follow accepted standards of care.
If your surgery went awry and you were injured, you have every right to know what happened and why. Were you a victim of an orthopedic surgical error such as the following?
- Blood transfusion errors
- Delay in diagnosis
- Delay in treatment
- Failure to perform necessary orthopedic surgery after a patient breaks a bone
- Hip replacement or knee replacement device failure
- Operating on a patient who was accidentally given test results of another patient
- Substandard surgical technique
- Unintended retention of a foreign object in a patient’s body
- Untreated infection after surgery
- Wrong-site surgery (including wrong-side surgery)
Sometimes surgery outcomes are not what patients hoped and expected, for unknown reasons. In other cases, an in-depth investigation may show that negligence of the operating physician or another health care professional was the cause of irreversible harm. Even if the orthopedic surgery mistake is correctable, you should expect those who made the hospital negligence errors to pay for your medical care, replace your lost wages and otherwise compensate you.
