Injured by a Surgical Error?

Medical Malpractice Lawyers Review Your Potential Case

Possible surgical errors leading to medical malpractice

At the law offices of Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman, P.C., our staff of skilled medical malpractice attorneys represent the interests of clients injured by surgical errors. These mistakes can lead to infection, disfigurement, disability and even the wrongful death of a patient. If your Rockland County or Bergen County surgeon did not follow recognized standards of care in performing your procedure, you may be an innocent victim of medical malpractice.

Barry S. Kantrowitz leads our team of personal injury attorneys who will fight hard for the full financial compensation you deserve. Health care costs have skyrocketed, and medical malpractice may have left you with bills you cannot pay. In addition to the initial surgery, you may require additional surgeries or hospital stays to correct the effects of a surgical error.

The entire experience may have left a long-term, negative and traumatic impact on you. At KGG, we take these factors into consideration, along with the facts of your case to get results for you and your family in negotiation or litigation.

Our medical malpractice lawyers offer hard work and client commitment on a contingency fee basis. This means that no attorney fees will be charged unless we secure a medical malpractice settlement or verdict in your favor.

What is Medical Malpractice for Surgical Errors?

Medical malpractice is when a doctor, surgeon or health care professional fails to act in accordance with medical standards of care and injures patients as a result. Examples of the surgical error cases we have represented, or would represent, are:

  • Delayed or unnecessary surgery
  • Removal of the wrong organ
  • Amputation of the wrong limb
  • Operation on the wrong limb
  • Puncture or perforation of the bowel
  • Disfigurement or scarring
  • Severed arteries
  • Wrong medicine administered
  • Anesthesia error
  • Instruments or medical devices left inside the patient
  • Other “never events”

Medical malpractice claims, whether a surgical error, cerebral palsy or failure to diagnose cancer, frequently are not resolved without extensive litigation and a jury trial. At KGG, our skilled legal team has the experience necessary to present your case in its most favorable light and obtain the best possible results for your claim.
