Suturing Errors

During an operation, there are many different tasks that must be accomplished correctly in order to prevent a patient from suffering needless complications. One particularly frustrating and potentially dangerous type of surgical error involves closing the surgical opening. Suturing errors can cause acute pain and may lead to serious adverse health effects for the patient.

If you or someone you love has suffered from a complication arising from suturing errors, the Charleston medical malpractice attorneys of the Steinberg Law Firm may be able to help. Contact our offices at 843-720-2800 to discuss your legal rights and the potential merits of a civil lawsuit in your case.


A layperson may consider the suturing of a surgical site to be perhaps the simplest part of a procedure. However, proper suturing is integral to ensuring the well-being and recovery of the patient. If an incision or wound is closed incorrectly, an individual may be in danger of serious health problems such as:

  • Tearing of the skin around the sutures
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Heightened risk of infection
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Damage to the surrounding tissue
  • Worsening of the original condition

It is important that surgeons and other medical professionals who are involved in the performance of any surgical procedure are held to the highest standards of care. Failures that result in harm to patients may warrant the pursuit of legal action. This can serve not only to hold them accountable, but it can also gain financial compensation for medical bills and other damages.
