Thousands of people a year in the U.S. are injured or even die due to surgical errors before, during, or after surgery. These injuries are more common than you might think. In fact, a recent study found that surgery is the second most common cause for medical malpractice claims against doctors overall. Surgical errors can have significant short-term or, in worst-case scenarios, long-term negative consequences.
