We know how to prepare solid, effective cases. Our firm helps individuals and families in claims involving a wide range of hospital errors, including:
- Failure to remove surgical instruments from the body

Medical malpractice can occur before the surgery by failure to prepare properly and evaluate the patient’s health status. Errors in the operating room may be due to negligence in surgical technique, mistakes with anesthesia, damage caused to surrounding tissue or failure to timely identify and treat the problem. In more extreme cases, a surgeon may operate on the wrong area of the body altogether. Medical healthcare professionals may be held responsible for these serious medical mistakes.
