Surgical mistakes and surgical malpractice occur when a surgeon fails to provide adequate treatment to a surgery patient. This can result in significant personal injury or substantial loss of income. When medical “standards” are not followed and surgery patients receive inadequate treatment, surgical malpractice cases arise.

Attorneys often help surgical malpractice victims recover very large financial settlements to offset a lifetime of medical bills. However, surgical malpractice cases are traumatic, heartbreaking, and extremely complex. As a result, surgical malpractice cases require the help of attorneys with the highest level of legal expertise.
