Lake County Surgical Errors Lawyer
Holding Negligent Surgeons Responsible for Surgery Errors
Any surgery carries with it unavoidable risks, and even the most careful and well trained surgeon may not be able to prevent all complications. However, injuries that result from distraction, negligence or insufficient skill are not acceptable risks of surgery. The hospital, anesthesiologist, doctor or surgeon whose error causes harm can be held liable for the damage they cause.
At the law offices of Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., our attorneys know how to pursue cases where further injury could and should have been avoided. Since 1985, our lawyers have represented Illinois medical malpractice victims in litigation. While we cannot take away the physical and emotional burden of catastrophic injury, we can advocate for you and your family to obtain the financial resources you need now and in the future.
If You Have Experienced Malpractice in the Operating Room
Surgical errors can take many different forms, and be the result of inexperience, inattention, negligence, exhaustion or distraction. Common kinds of surgery room errors include:
- Failure to treat complications
- Physical injury and bleeding
- Unnecessary surgery
- Anesthesia errors
- Failure to monitor breathing
- Misidentification and surgery on wrong body parts
- Leaving foreign objects in body
It can take weeks or even years to recognize the surgical error, and even in the best cases, it can be difficult to get straight answers to questions from hospitals and doctors about what happened in the OR. As a result, getting full compensation from insurance companies can be difficult or impossible without the help of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer.
Our lawyers have been representing Lake County area medical malpractice victims for more than 20 years, and we have a reputation for successful practice. We can draw from an extensive pool of resources to get results and answers for you once we have reviewed the facts of your case.
