Advocating For Surgical Error Victims

Surgical errors are preventable incidents that often result from negligent behavior, lack of preparation or other missteps by the surgeon or hospital staff. Common surgical errors include:

  • Perforating organs during surgery
  • Failing to monitor vital signs during the procedure
  • Operating on the wrong site or wrong body part
  • Failing to fix the problem as promised
  • Leaving in a foreign object
  • Failing to recognize and treat a complication

Surgeons are accountable for the harm they cause their patients. Our lawyer can build a strong case and work diligently to help you recover the compensation you deserve. When a procedure turns into a nightmare, you need an experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive attorney on your side who is willing to stand up for your rights.
