Surgical Errors

When surgery is necessary to correct a medical problem, there should be no question about the surgeon’s qualifications or ability to perform the procedure. We trust that the surgeon will do his or her job correctly. In many cases, though, surgeons make mistakes that not only fail to correct the medical problem, but sometimes make the problem worse. So, in addition to all surgeries having the capacity for error, malpractice or negligence the surgeon, anesthesiologist and surgical team members can also commit errors before the procedure and after the procedure. Anesthesiologists, general surgeons, orthopedic surgeons and OBGYN’s are among the most common types of physicians named in surgery negligence claims. Others are colo-rectal surgeons, thoracic surgeons, oncologists, neurosurgeons, pediatric surgeons and opthalmologists. No matter whose negligence caused your injury or where it took place you may be entitled to benefits and financial compensation. It makes sense to consult with our surgeon negligence attorneys for a free case eval.
