Surgical Mishaps

Surgery can be a traumatic experience.  We know that there will be some level of pain involved. We must place our very survival in the hands of doctors, who we believe have the experience and capability to treat us successfully. We trust that the doctors and medical staff know exactly what they are doing, and that they will adhere to the best medical practices.

Unfortunately, not all surgeries are performed successfully. When surgical mishaps are the result of medical negligence, the consequences can be devastating. In these instances, it becomes the job of legal counsel to represent the injured and their families to see that those responsible pay for the damages sustained.

Doctors (and the insurance companies who represent them) typically fight to deny all liability for the wrongdoing. They have a huge interest for denying liability. Frequently, they are willing to spend more money in hiring attorneys and experts to defend their case than to pay for the damages they caused without going to court.

 When surgical mishaps occur due to negligence, we help the injured and their families receive the damages to which they are entitled. We work with medical experts to examine every aspect of the surgical mishap.

How We Help Clients in the Case of Surgical Mishap
Surgical mishap cases involve very carefully examining the medical records for the surgery on a minute-by-minute basis to determine what happened throughout the surgery. It also requires obtaining the experts of medical professionals to determine whether the actions taken by the medical staff were appropriate.
