Working To Get Justice For The Victims Of Surgical Errors
Surgery can be frightening. When surgical errors and complications happen because of a surgeon’s negligence, the results can be devastating. Physicians are held to a standard of care, and when it is not met, litigation is often the only recourse to learn what happened and what could have been done differently.

The Many Forms Of Surgical Malpractice
Malpractice can occur in any type of surgical practice, including orthopedics, cardiac, neurological, liver and gallbladder, kidney and urinary tract, ENT, and obstetric and gynecological surgery. Tragic results can range from post-surgical infection to the damaging of surrounding organs or vessels to the performing of unnecessary surgery.
