Justice And Compensation For Those Harmed By Surgical Errors
There is an element of faith in all medical care — surgery is no exception. Even minor surgeries have the remote possibility of fatal complications. There are very few times in any person’s life where such a dramatic level of control is handed over to someone else so completely.
So many things can go wrong during a surgery, including:
- Operating on the wrong body part (wrong-site surgery)
- Leaving a sponge or other foreign object inside a person
- Nicking or perforating blood vessels, nerves or organs
- Failing to monitor a person’s recovery after a surgery
Help Finding Out What Went Wrong
Too often, when there is a mistake in or after a surgery that causes harm, the doctor and the hospital or clinic will put up a wall of silence. Complete denials of error are the norm in many cases. How do you penetrate that reluctance to say what really happened? We have extensive experience building highly effective medical malpractice cases, and we have secured record verdicts for our clients. We understand how to secure the medical records necessary for us to understand what went wrong and who was at fault.
