Did Something Go Wrong During Or After Surgery?
The most routine surgery is still a complex undertaking involving many people and certain risks. Even when the surgical team does everything right, there is no guarantee that an operation will be successful. However, when those medical professionals make mistakes or poor decisions, they should be held responsible for fatal or irreversible harm.
If you believe your injuries or the injuries or death of a loved one stemmed from surgical errors, the experienced medical malpractice lawyers of Goldsmith & Goldsmith, LLP, can provide sophisticated investigation to reveal the truth. We have held surgeons, anesthesiologists and hospitals accountable for surgical errors in notable cases across New Jersey and New York.
Medical Malpractice In Surgical Procedures
The surgery team must be diligent all the time, every time. There is simply little margin for error. Our legal team includes a licensed physician and a registered nurse who can analyze the medical records to identify where the doctors and nurses went wrong. We have obtained recoveries in diverse and complex surgery malpractice cases, including:
- Complications of spine surgery
