New Jersey Surgical Errors Attorneys

Medical Malpractice Attorneys Helping People Injured in Surgery

Every surgery contains an element of risk. Even when a surgical procedure is done according to plan, there is still the possibility that the patient will not respond favorably to the surgery. However, there are numerous instances where surgeons and others in the operating room fail to adhere to accepted standards of surgical care. When these professionals make avoidable mistakes, innocent patients can suffer catastrophic injury and death. After a surgical error, additional surgeries may be required, both to repair the damage of the surgical error and to treat the underlying condition. Each subsequent surgery brings additional risks.

We are the law firm of Britcher Leone, LLC. Located in Glen Rock and Parsippany, our attorneys represent people who have suffered and lost loved ones due to surgical errors. We are focused on helping you get the financial relief you need to make it through this difficult time.

Errors in the Operating Room

Surgical errors often involve a surgeon's failure to identify an artery or to protect a vital organ. If these structures are cut by surgical instruments, severe consequences can ensue. While mistakes happen in the operating room, the surgical team should be ready and able to take corrective measures. The failure to recognize or address a surgical error could have fatal consequences.

Surgical error cases are technically complex and require the attention of experienced medical malpractice attorneys. We will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case, searching for pertinent information in surgery logs and other sources. We work with renowned expert witnesses who help us prepare and present cases for surgery error victims.

Below is an example of our work in surgical malpractice claims.

In February 1998, a Morris County jury awarded $863,000, with prejudgment interest, to a Morris County man and his wife. Our client was the victim of medical malpractice in a back operation. We were able to demonstrate to the jury that the doctor failed to adequately evaluate the patient prior to surgery and failed to diagnose and treat a post-operative infection. This infection led to multiple subsequent surgeries and chronic pain.

Every case is contingent upon specific facts, and our past results should not be construed as a guarantee of future results.
