Representing Victims of Surgical Errors

Despite the years of training that surgeons receive, surgical errors do happen. If you or a family member have been the victim of a surgical error or anesthesia error, you have the right to claim compensation for your medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our firm has been representing clients in medical malpractice cases for more than 30 years. We have the experience and resources needed to win — and we will work tenaciously to obtain results for you.

Compensation in Cases Involving Surgical Errors

Errors made during traditional invasive surgery do occur. With the development of minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopic surgery, new types of surgical errors are happening. Burns and incisions in abdominal organs can result in peritonitis or sepsis. Many surgical errors only become evident after the surgery is completed — for example, when a surgeon performing a laparoscopic operation fails to note a nick or burn. This can result in a serious and life-threatening infection after the completion of a “successful” surgery.

Many of these errors are avoidable — provided that surgeons perform to the standard expected by their profession and society. Our firm will undertake a comprehensive investigation that identifies the nature of the medical negligence and the losses you have suffered.

We expect high standards of care from doctors and medical providers. After all, we put our lives and those of our children in their hands. In your case, Devereaux, Stokes, Fernandez & Leonard will hold the medical provider to that standard — and seek maximum compensation for you.
