Surgical Error Attorney

Trust us to put your best interests first

In surgery, there’s no room for error, no room for mistakes. But some surgeons don’t meet that standard.

Unfortunately, surgeons sometimes make mistakes. And when they do, the consequences can be devastating. Existing medical conditions can get worse. New medical conditions can develop. Even fatalities occur due to surgical errors.

Don’t underestimate the seriousness of your surgical error. If you believe you or a loved one was hurt due to medical malpractice, make sure you talk to an attorney right away. Often, you only have a limited amount of time (known as the statute of limitations) to take legal action.

The experienced surgical error attorneys at Goldberg & Schulkin Law Offices can answer your questions and provide advice on which strategy makes the most sense for successfully resolving your legal claim.

Common surgical mistakes

Surgical mistakes can cover a wide range. Some of the most serious surgical error cases we handle at our law firm involve:

  • Wrong surgical procedure performed
  • Surgical instrument left inside patient
  • Wrong patient operated on
  • Wrong body part operated on
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Infection due to surgical error

Many other serious surgical errors often occur. And each one requires its own unique approach. That’s why it’s important to talk a lawyer as soon as possible about your potential case. That’s why we want to meet with you.

How we can help you

Surgeons rarely admit they make mistakes. Why does this matter? Because insurance companies often use such denials as justification for reducing or denying your claim for financial compensation. And when it comes to surgical errors, there could be thousands or even millions of dollars at stake.

We understand what you’re going through. We’ve been practicing law for more than 40 years. That’s why we want to help. We can investigate your concerns. We have an in-house nurse on staff. We know how to negotiate with insurance companies. And if they refuse to cooperate, we’re prepared to take them to court.
