Have you or a loved one been injured because of mistakes made during surgery? We’ll get you the compensation you deserve.
As we go through life, we may at times need the assistance of a medical surgeon to help correct or repair our bodies. Most of our doctors are skilled and experienced and carry out their jobs with success. However, sometimes mistakes are made, and unfortunately, when a mistake is made in surgery the impact can be catastrophic and life-changing. Sometimes a botched surgery can even result in death.
If you have experienced a surgery gone wrong, you are facing a difficult set of circumstances. In many cases a patient will have to undergo additional medical procedures to correct the mistake that was originally made. This in turn leads to even more medical expenses. You will most likely miss even more time from work, and will have to deal with a further loss of income. Other unforeseen difficulties may arise for you as you try to recover. You may feel uncertain about your future and have many unanswered questions.
The doctors and the hospitals have the resources available to hire the best attorneys to represent them. You should be aware that they may deny the medical mistakes made. It’s crucial that you have someone on your side to protect your rights and to win you the monetary compensation you deserve.

Here are some testimonials from satisfied clients we have represented in the past.
The number of surgical errors made in the United States on an annual basis is very high, and appears to be increasing every year. It is estimated that approximately 100,000 people die every year from errors made in the operating room, either by surgeons, nurses, or other medical personnel.
Surgical errors vary, and some common examples are: operating on the wrong side of the patient, leaving things inside the patient such as surgical tools or instruments, and in some cases, even operating on the wrong patient.
Many factors contribute to surgical mistakes, such as:
- overcrowding in hospitals
- miscommunication among surgical staff
- Illegible handwriting on patient charts
- Surgeon fatigue due to extremely long hours
- Failure of staff to take an accurate and complete patient history
- Inadequate pre-operative planning
- Failure of staff to notate all drug allergies of the patient
As a result of a surgical error, you may have nerve or organ damage and you may have to undergo further surgeries to correct the error. And Medicare, as well as certain insurance companies, have recently ruled that they will not pay for corrective surgeries on patients, therefore placing the burden of the entire medical expense on the patient.
