Liability in an Ohio Personal Injury Case Involving Wrong Site Surgery

Mellino Law Firm

Unfortunately, surgical errors are not uncommon. One type that may lead to serious or life-threatening consequences is wrong site surgery. This can happen on the wrong patient, the wrong side of a patient, or with the wrong procedure.

Liable Parties in Wrong Site Surgery

Wrong site surgery is a preventable medical mistake, with the potential for liability to be found with the:

  • surgeon;
  • nurse;
  • anesthesiologist;
  • pre-operative care staff member;
  • hospital; and
  • other medical professionals involved in the procedure.

It may seem like a daunting task to go after a surgeon or other medical professional. However you have the right to seek compensation if you were seriously injured — physically and/or emotionally — as a result of a medical mistake.

A medical malpractice attorney can help you pursue compensation for medical expenses, such as any additional operations you underwent, lost wages, mental anguish, wrongful death, pain and suffering, and more.
