New York medical malpractice attorney explains surgical error in an interview with Super Lawyers

Posted:


New York City, NY — New York City medical malpractice lawyer, Jonathan C. Reiter, explains the consequences of surgical errors in an interview with Super Lawyers.

Super Lawyers is an organization that aims to aid the public in their search for the right attorney, and provide a database of information from reputable lawyers. Being named a Super Lawyer involves an intensive multistep process, including nomination, independent research, and peer evaluation. By the end of the process, only the top five percent of lawyers in any area make the list. Reiter has been named a Super Lawyer every year since 2011.

Reiter’s team of attorneys are highly reputable in New York medical malpractice, having retrieved over $250 million in losses for victims of such cases. In the interview by Super Lawyers, Reiter, who is also recognized by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel as part of the Nation’s Top One Percent, shares the kinds of surgical errors that may count as medical malpractice along with their consequences.

“Surgical errors encompass a variety of different kinds of common problems,” Reiter explains, “For example, the doctor cuts an organ or damages an organ that is not even being operated on, operates on the wrong side of the body, or leaves surgical instruments, pads, and other types of devices in the patient's body.”

Reiter also explains what he calls false reassurance, where a patient feels that something isn’t right, but medical professionals insist that everything is fine. This is often due to reluctance to admit that something has gone wrong, but can lead to catastrophic, even fatal, consequences for the patient, including worsening of their condition, or leaks and infection at the surgery sight. “These are all different kinds of surgical problems which can give rise to medical malpractice cases.”
