The Experience and the Resources to Handle Your Problem
As medical malpractice attorneys, we have the experience, resources and access to medical professionals required to understand and pursue these complicated claims. We ask the right questions and work with knowledgeable experts to obtain a clear understanding of how the injury or death occurred. Our firm uncovers the truth about what happened, how it happened and who or what was responsible for the surgical error. We are dedicated to protecting our clients' rights and demanding full compensation for their losses.
Types of Surgical Errors
As with other types of medical malpractice claims, it must be shown that the surgeon's actions, or the actions of another medical professional, fell below the applicable standard of care. The hospital, the surgeon and their lawyers will say that the negligence did not result in a life-threatening mistake. As the person who experienced the mistake, you know differently. Our firm can help you or a loved one who has been affected by surgical errors such as the following:
- Anesthesia errors such as over sedation or anesthesia awareness
- Instruments or sponges left in patients
- Injury to or perforation of an organ, nerve or artery
- Wrong site surgery/wrong side surgery/wrong body part surgery
- Failure to monitor
- Post-surgical infections
- Unnecessary surgeries
