What Went Wrong in Your Surgery?

Surgeons are highly prone to burnout and depression, which can lead to laziness, complacency or mental lapses. Sometimes surgeons use cutting-edge techniques or technology without proper training or equipment. Surgical nurses sometimes take shortcuts or ignore strict pre-surgery, procedural and post-op protocols designed to prevent mistakes and keep patients safe. Every member of the surgical team has an obligation to speak up or follow up when errors do occur, but often the inclination is to cover up the evidence and cover for each other.

Our job is to uncover the negligence and demonstrate what could and should have been done to avoid our client’s tragic outcome. It costs nothing to find out if you have the basis for a viable lawsuit, and if we take your case there are no attorney fees unless we win compensation.
