Surgical Errors

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Established Surgical Mistake Attorneys in Illinois

Surgeons are considerably trained and highly paid medical professionals.

We expect them to do their jobs flawlessly every time. Nevertheless, surgeons don’t always meet our expectations. Of course, there is an amount of risk involved in every surgical procedure. When patients undergo surgery, they are usually asked to sign a waiver of liability. But that contract is breached when the patient is harmed due to neglect on the part of the surgeon or supporting staff.

What is considered Surgical Error?

The types of surgical errors that can occur are almost as numerous are the available types of surgery. But the following are common cases of surgery gone wrong:

If you believe that a doctor, nurse, anesthesiologist or other medical professional committed an error that directly resulted in serious injury, you owe it yourself to contact a skilled, compassionate Chicago malpractice attorney at Malman Law.

We include a medical professional on our staff – an R.N. and a physician with a law degree. This gives us leverage in both the medical and the legal world. We can examine you, and determine if you have suffered a surgical error that could have been prevented with reasonable care. Then we will get to work fighting for your rights.
