Cases Our Philadelphia Neurosurgery Error Lawyers Handle

Like neurological disorders and injuries themselves, the circumstances surrounding malpractice in this medical specialty are unique to the individuals who suffer from medical mistakes.

Examples of Neurosurgical Errors

The Philadelphia neurosurgery error lawyers at Anapol Weiss handle neurosurgeon malpractice cases such as the following:

  • Failing to order the appropriate tests before surgery
  • Misreading test results or patient charts and making mistakes during the procedure due to this misinterpretation
  • Failing to monitor the patient’s vital signs during surgery and while in recovery
  • Technical execution errors, such as incorrectly cutting into the brain, spine, or nerves or cutting into the wrong area of the brain, spine, or nerves
  • Failing to properly fill in the patient’s charts and records
  • Performing unnecessary neurosurgery, including operating on the wrong patient, operating on the wrong body part, and performing procedures that aren’t needed
  • Neglecting to order appropriate tests to check patients’ post-surgical well-being
  • Leaving foreign objects inside the body
  • Mistakes in administering medication or, during surgery, in administering anesthetics

Who Can Be Sued in a Neurosurgery Malpractice Claim?

Mistakes in neurosurgery can take a variety of forms, and the neurosurgeon isn’t always the responsible party (or, at least, the only responsible party). In a case involving a neurosurgical medical error, the injured patient or their family may pursue a malpractice claim against parties like the following:

  • Neurosurgeons
  • Nurse practitioners
  • Physician assistants (PAs)
  • Nurses
  • Technicians and operating room personnel
  • Anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, or anesthesiology physician assistants whose errors in administering anesthesia contributed to the outcome
  • Medical device manufacturers, when defective products contributed to the outcome along with malpractice
  • The hospital or facility where the error occurred

Injuries Due to Neurosurgeon Malpractice

The stakes are high. Mistakes made during and after neurosurgery often leave patients with injuries and complications like the following:

  • Permanent brain damage
  • Aneurysms
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of limb function
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Functional impairments, including impairments in mobility and memory
  • Blood clots, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and potentially life-threatening pulmonary embolism (PE)
  • Serious, even life-threatening preventable infections
  • Fatal harm (wrongful death actions)
