A surgical injury could range from an accidental perforation of an organ to permanent disability.  Surgical injuries occur because of contaminated surgical instruments, bacterial infections, wound infections, and more. 

Certain surgical injuries occur because of administrative errors such as the lack of informed consent or preoperative care.   Proper care prior to a surgery and after it is just as important as the surgery itself.  If a patient is not well aware of all of the risks prior to a surgical procedure, this is a form of malpractice.  Any injury sustained because of improper anesthesia or the failure to attend to a patient’s vital signs during the operation is also malpractice.

In some cases, a surgical injury will result in organ damage, paralysis or permanent disabilities that will results in years of intensive therapy and costly medical bills.
