Pursuing Compensation For Surgical Mistakes
All surgeries involve a certain amount of risk. However, when a surgeon or other medical professionals involved in a procedure fail to follow the accepted standard of care, serious complications can occur. If you or a loved one has been harmed as the result of a surgical mistake, it is important to seek help from a lawyer who has experience handling complex medical malpractice cases.

Common Surgical Errors
Some surgical mistakes are obvious, such as when medical tools are left behind in a patient’s body following surgery or when the wrong part of the body is operated on. Other errors are less obvious and might require the skilled eye of a dedicated legal team to determine what, if anything, went wrong. We handle claims involving all types of surgical errors, including:
- Anesthesia errors
- Negligent supervision of those in the operating room
- Carelessness, such as cutting a blood vessel or an organ during surgery
- Failing to provide proper discharge instructions
Determining whether an error was a simple mistake or rises to the level of negligence can be a difficult task. We have extensive experience handling malpractice cases, and we will work hard to help you build a strong claim.
