Surgical Errors

SURGICAL ERRORS AND MEDICAL ERRORS

During surgery, you literally place your life in the hands of your medical team. Most of the time, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and nurses follow procedures, and their patients have successful results. All too often, however, something goes wrong. When that happens, the results can be life changing and, in some cases, deadly.

If you or a member of your family has suffered a serious injury due to a surgical error, you will need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney on your site. We help victims of surgical errors receive financial compensation for the damages they have suffered.

We handle all types of surgical error cases including:

  • Performing the wrong surgical procedure
  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Operating on the wrong patient
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Leaving instruments or sponges behind
  • Cutting or puncturing organs

 

We will study your medical records to determine who was in the operating room at the time of your procedure. Then we retain respected medical experts to review the record to determine if preventable surgical errors caused your injury. Were established standards of care followed? If not, malpractice may have occurred.

Surgical errors can result in permanent disability and even wrongful death. We will pursue full compensation for the victims of surgical errors and the survivors of those who died because of negligence in the operating room.
