Common Surgical Errors Resulting in Medical Malpractice in Minnesota

Minnesota Medical Malpractice Lawyer Explains Surgical Errors

When we hear about medical malpractice, we naturally think of surgical errors.  We think about surgeons who make errors during a surgery like slipping a scalpel, losing a foreign object inside of us, or even never waking up.  While all of these are indeed surgical errors, these are not always the typical types of surgical malpractice that harm patients.  In fact, much more subtle types of surgical errors could be medical malpractice and seriously harm a patient.  But they are not as common and go unaddressed.


But at Kuhlman Law, LLC, we know about the many different types of medical malpractice cases in Minnesota which are caused by surgical errors.  If you or a loved one underwent a surgery and have any additional injuries after the surgery, a longer than expected recovery time, or any unexplained injuries, call (612) 444-3374 for a FREE consultation to learn how we can protect your rights.  There is no risk to learn if your surgery caused medical malpractice, and you only pay if we win your case.

While there are some very obvious surgical errors, there are many more which are not obvious and you should have a Minnesota medical malpractice lawyer review them for you.  This includes some of the most dangerous types of surgical errors—anesthesia errors.  A free consultation can review your story, look at your medical records, and apply the law to determine if something wrong has occurred.
