Surgery Errors


When one undergoes an operation, you literally put your life in the hands of that medical team. If that trust is breached through carelessness or bad decisions, the outcome is likely to be catastrophic.

Our trial lawyers have obtained noteworthy results in medical malpractice litigation for clients in every borough of New York City and Long Island. We urge you to reach out to us promptly to preserve your rights and improve the odds of a successful result.

Medical Malpractice In Surgery Errors

Our attorneys have experience with a range of surgery errors and accidents resulting in death or serious injury:

  • Wrong procedure — operating on the wrong limb or organ
  • Anesthesia error — resulting in brain damage or cardiac failure
  • Foreign objects — sponges or clamps left inside the patient
  • Scalpel errors — nicked arteries, perforated bowels, severed nerves
  • Botched cosmetic surgery (facial, breast and a host of others) — nerve damage or disfigurement
  • Unauthorized procedures
  • Postoperative complications, including infection and internal bleeding

These are only a sample of what may go wrong when surgeons, anesthesiologists, and surgical nurses deviate from protocol or are not properly trained or prepared for the procedure. Our firm has cultivated a network of medical experts who can examine the medical records and attest that the injury or fatality constitutes medical malpractice. We are always prepared to take your case to a jury verdict to obtain comprehensive compensation if medical providers and their insurers will not settle for an appropriate amount of money for your damages.

“Insurance companies are keenly aware of which lawyer they are up against when they negotiate the settlement of a case. The client’s choice of lawyer is very important.” ∼ Charles Gucciardo
