Not Every Surgery Causes Healing

Most medical consumers have great faith that surgery will help heal them. Unfortunately, surgical errors and negligence do occur, causing further illness, injury and death. At the Chicago law firm of Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. our attorneys represent individuals who have experienced surgical errors. We have obtained numerous verdicts and settlements for clients who were hurt and for the families of people who died as a result of surgical errors.

Our firm has the resources needed to investigate cases and determine the point at which the surgeon or surgical team deviated from the approved standard of care. We consult with medical and surgical experts, interview members of surgical teams, and review all pertinent records of the personnel and institutions involved. Call us at 312-445-9160.

What Is Considered A Surgical Error?

Surgical negligence can involve:

  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Leaving instruments and equipment in the patient
  • Causing infections and secondary illness from negligent post-operative care
  • Making anesthesia errors
  • Nicking or cutting an organ or blood vessel
  • Failing to timely and adequately respond to a deteriorating situation

Our attorneys have helped clients affected by negligent acts such as these obtain compensation and damages for their expenses, pain and suffering, and other costs of their illnesses or injuries. If a patient died as a consequence of a negligent surgical error, our lawyers will help you file a wrongful death lawsuit.
