Michigan Medial Malpractice Claims Due To Surgery Mistakes


Lawrence Buckfire

Michigan medical malpractice lawyers often represent patients who have suffered injuries due to medical mistakes during surgeries and surgical procedures. Many of these injuries are very serious, often requiring extensive medical treatment and the need for additional surgeries. When a surgical error causes a death, it can give rise to a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.

Surgery malpractice lawsuits are filed against surgeons for a number of complications that occur during the actual surgery itself and during post-operative care. Although, many surgical procedures have inherent risks and complications to surgical procedures, there are many unfortunate injuries and deaths that are caused due to surgical errors. A careful analysis of the medical records is necessary to determine whether an injury or death was caused by medical malpractice or whether it was an inherent risk of the surgery.

The most common types of surgery malpractice cases include:

-Appendectomy Surgery

-Angioplasty Surgery

-Gallbladder Surgery

-Endoscopy Surgery

-Hernia Repair Surgery

-Colonoscopy Surgery

-Aortic Dissection Surgery

-Back Surgery

-Neck Surgery

-Kidney Surgery

-Spinal Surgery

-Breast Surgery

-Cataract Surgery

-Lasik Surgery

-Bariatric Surgery

-Gastric Bypass Surgery

-Heart Bypass Surgery

-Aortic Valve Replacement Surgery

-Cholecystectomy Surgery

-Dilitation and Curettage Surgery

-Ear, Nose, and Throat Surgery

-Plastic Surgery & Cosmetic Surgery

There are risks involved in every surgery and surgical procedure and not all poor results are due to medical malpractice. A lawsuit can only be filed when there is a surgery error or mistake that caused your injury. Risks of surgery include:

-Infections, such as sepsis


-Need for additional surgeries

-Cardiac arrest

-Anesthesia error


Although these are common risks of surgery, they may also be the result of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice arises when a surgeon either commits an error during the surgery itself that causes an injury or fails to detect an injury that occurs during surgery that causes harm to the patient. There are also occasions when the patient develops a condition after the surgery while still admitted to the hospital but is discharged too soon and suffers additional injuries as a result.

An experienced medical malpractice lawyers can review your medical chart and surgery records and determine whether your injury was the result of negligent treatment or just a normal risk or complication of your procedure. Medical malpractice can also occur due to improper treatment, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, and failure to order necessary medical testing before discharging a patient home. There are strict time limitations for filing medical malpractice cases in Michigan and if you wait too long, your case may be barred forever.
