Nashville Surgical Error Attorneys
Surgical treatments are often pursued when other, less drastic or invasive options prove to be unsuccessful or are insufficient in response to the urgency of a patient’s condition. Surgery patients may therefore be in a particular tenuous state of health at the time of an operation. Regrettably, the highly trained medical professionals in whom they place their trust may commit errors which further endanger their health and well-being, often with catastrophic results.
If you or your loved one has undergone a surgical procedure which was marred by a surgeon or other party’s mistake, you may wish to consider pursuing financial compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

The following are representative examples of surgical errors which may cause harm to a patient:
- Wrong Site Surgery
- Surgery on Wrong Patient
- Incorrect Surgical Procedures
- Mishandling of Surgical Instruments
- Foreign Objects inside Body Cavity
- Improper Suturing
