Wrong Site Surgery and Medical Malpractice

San Francisco Wrong Site Surgery Malpractice Attorney

Wrong site surgery means the wrong side of the body was treated surgically; for example, negligence in the form of a lens replacement done on the right eye rather than the left.  Wrong site surgery is the most preventable surgical malpractice in existence.  It occurs most often as a result of such conditions as the surgeon unawareness of who the patient is, or what part of the patient's body was found to be in need.  The surgeon and the associated operating team are all in degrees of unawareness of their specific surgical responsibilities individually and collectively in the case of a negligent wrong site surgery.  When a wrong site malpractice has occurred, the patient or a loved one should immediately get the aid of a San Francisco Medical Malpractice Attorney

Malpractice in Wrong Site Surgeries

Wrong Site surgery always has two undesired outcomes:

  • A  deficient body part is left uncorrected, and
  • a sound body part is damaged or lost

Usually there is no question of the fact that malpractice has occurred; more important is the question of the harm done in a wrong site surgery event.  An experienced, demanding but highly ethical legal team is very important to the outcome of legal action in this kind of case. The team at Pacific Attorney Group in San Francisco is such a team.  We have significant ability to understand  the factual effect of the wrong surgery, including the comparative effect of the impact of a correct surgery and that of no surgery having been performed in the first place.  Loss of fundamental body capability from a wrong amputation for example, or damage to a well-functioning eye and the retention of the originally deficient eye, severely damage a person's life capabilities, including one's ability to continue in a business or profession, his or her mental state and even one's pride.   We can help such a physically and mentally injured person determine true fairness in such a catastrophe and assist in a legal action that can help the injured ones get on with a life that they can look forward to.
