Wrong Site Surgery Attorneys Taking On All Types of Surgical NegligenceOf all medical professionals, surgeons are among the most respected, both by their peers and by members of the community. Surgeons are very prominent individuals within their chosen fields. With this said, surgeons make mistakes. When surgeons make mistakes, these mistakes can lead to life-threatening or fatal injuries. Even though there are risks in every surgery, surgeons do not have license to act negligently or recklessly during an operation. When surgeons fail to act with the proper degree of care, they must be held accountable.

Digging Deep to Uncover Evidence of Negligence
Over our years of practice lawyers have reviewed countless medical records and reports. We can tell you without reservation that surgeons never admit to making mistakes on their reports, even if there appears to be overwhelming evidence of negligence. In order to prove medical malpractice, our lawyers will look beyond the surgeon’s account to determine what really happened. We will look for discrepancies between the surgeon’s report and other reports, such as the anesthesiologist’s report. We will consult with other physicians who will serve as expert witnesses to show how your surgeon breached his or her standard of care to you. If we accept your case, you can take heart knowing we will compile all available evidence to prove your claim for damages.
