Suggering From a Surgical Error? Get Attorney Eric Steiner M.D.'s Unique Insight On Your Side

Are You a Victim of Surgical or Procedural Error?

Our Denver Medical Malpractice Lawyers Demand Compensation for You

When surgeons and other medical professionals fail to follow standard procedures, fail to perform with reasonable care, or fail to operate with due caution, a routine surgery can turn life-threatening or even be fatal. The medical malpractice attorneys at Gerash Steiner, P.C. have an established record of holding healthcare providers accountable for their surgical, diagnostic and therapeutic errors. In fact, Eric Steiner, M.D., a physician-attorney with more than 20 years of medical experience, leads our medical negligence practice.

If you have sustained serious injury after a medical procedure or surgery and you suspect medical malpractice may have played a role in the extent of your damages, then you must contact our firm immediately.

Preventable Surgical Errors

Before, during, and after a surgical procedure, physicians and staff have established protocols and cross-checks to prevent injurious mistakes. We have demonstrated in numerous cases how surgeons, radiologists, anesthesiologists, or nurses deviated from professional standards or simply botched the job in a variety of procedures.

Common surgical errors may include:

  • Catheter injuries - improper insertion or use of catheters can injure ducts, blood vessels, damage nerves and even introduce air into the bloodstream that may lead to a leakage, bleeding, heart attack, stroke or embolism.
  • Surgery errors - a surgeon's scalpel may nick arteries or sever nerves or tendons, causing dangerous bleeding or permanent loss of function.
  • Wrong operations - it is rare that surgeons operate on or remove the wrong body part, but when it happens it is devastating - and usually the result of pre-operative negligence on behalf of surgical staff.
  • Foreign objects - leaving surgical tools, sponges and other foreign materials inside the patient may cause infection, internal bleeding and nerve damage.
  • Anesthesia errors - improperly administering general, regional or local anesthetic can cause severe or permanent brain and/or nerve damage.
  • Post-surgical negligence - nurses and operating physicians have a duty to follow up and monitor post-operative patients for any sign of hemorrhage, infection, embolisms, respiratory problems, blood clots, cardiac distress or other life-threatening complications of surgery.
