According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics nearly half of all medical malpractice claims are brought against surgeons. However the risks of surgery begin during pre-surgery preparations and continue during the post-surgery recovery. Often surgical malpractice is concealed. Bad medical outcomes are explained as a risk of surgery. We are committed to helping people injured as a result of surgical errors.

All medical malpractice cases are complex and surgical malpractice is no different. We work with a number of medical professional to examine medical records to determine the cause of surgical injuries. There are a number of issues that commonly result in surgical malpractice claims:

  • Delayed or prolonged surgery
  • Organ puncture or perforation
  • Incorrect incision
  • Surgery on a healthy organ
  • Surgery on the wrong site or on the wrong side of a patient
  • Use of unsanitary surgical utensils
  • Improper keyhole surgery techniques
  • Improperly supervised residents

Not all bad outcomes are a result of surgical malpractice. However, if you suspect injures resulted from a medical mistake or were not discussed as possible consequence prior to surgery, it is important to contact an attorney experienced at investigating and litigating surgical errors.

We provide a free initial consultation and handle all our medical malpractice claims on a contingency basis. While we strive to obtain settlement surgical error cases, insurance companies and surgeons are reluctant to take responsibility for surgical errors. Our firm has the experience and resource to effectively handle any litigation involving surgical errors.
