Surgical Errors And Serious Injuries
Every surgical procedure involves an element of risk. There may be times when patients suffer harm during surgery, but that harm should not be the result of negligence on the part of a doctor, nurse or anesthesiologist.
If you or a loved one was injured during surgery because of negligence or a mistake that could have been prevented through reasonable care, that is medical malpractice — and you deserve compensation and a chance to hold the doctor accountable.
Injured As A Result Of A Surgical Mistake? We Can Help
The medical malpractice lawyers at Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., in New York City help injured people and families who have lost loved ones get justice and the money damages to which they are entitled. We have a strong track record of successful verdicts and settlements in medical malpractice cases.
For more than 50 years, we have been fighting for injured people. We bring medical malpractice cases to court when surgical errors result in serious injury.
Our attorneys are qualified to pursue medical malpractice claims against hospitals, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other operating room personnel for:
- Wrong-site surgery
- Wrong-patient surgery
- Wrong surgical procedure performed
- Surgical instruments left in the body
- Injury to organs, blood vessels and nerves
- Improper antiseptic practices leading to infection
- Anesthesia overdoses and medical errors
- Failure to monitor patients in recovery
Not all bad surgery outcomes are the result of surgery mistakes or medical malpractice. Generally, only another medical doctor can say if accepted practices were followed and can identify the surgical errors that were made. We work closely with leading medical experts to determine whether negligence played a role in your injury.
