Surgical Errors Can Come In Many Different Forms

When most people think of surgical errors, they think of surgeons operating on the wrong body part or accidentally clipping an artery. While these two errors are, unfortunately, fairly common, other types of surgical errors seem to be just as common in South Carolina ? including foreign body retention. What is foreign body retention?

Foreign body retention occurs when a surgeon leaves a foreign object inside a patient. Objects regularly discovered left in patients after surgeries include clamps, needles and, especially, sponges. All of these items and any others inadvertently left behind have the capacity to seriously injure or even kill patients.

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury due to foreign body retention, you have the right to pursue personal injury or wrongful death compensation for your injury or loss. Both types of compensation can help you to pay the medical expenses that resulted from the surgical error and compensate you for pain and suffering. In the case of a fatal surgical error, wrongful death compensation can help you pay your loved one's end-of-life expenses.

Regardless of the surgical mistake that left you or your loved one injured, you may benefit from speaking with an experienced attorney about your situation. We have years of experience representing clients from Coastal South Carolina whose lives have been seriously impacted by surgical errors, and we will put our experience to work on your case.
