Surgical Injury Statistics

The occurrence of surgical injury in the United States has increased dramatically in recent years, according to a report issued by The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). In fact, the JCAHO stated that the number of surgical injury cases has increased 10 times since 1998.
The majority of documented surgical injury cases involve wrong-site surgeries or those performed on the wrong limb, organ or other area of the body. However, 13 percent of surgical injuries involve wrong-patient surgeries and 11 percent involve the wrong medical procedure.

Surgical Injury: What You Can Do?

Individuals who have suffered a surgical injury may be eligible to file a medical malpractice lawsuit to recover damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity and pain suffering. However, because a statute of limitations restricts the time an individual has to file a claim, it is important to consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
