When an injury or illness is serious enough to warrant surgery, individuals rely on medical professionals to help them. Unfortunately, it is possible that a surgery will make the problem worse or end in disaster. If you or a loved one suffered surgical errors at the hands of negligent surgical staff members, our firm can help to hold them responsible for their actions.
At Cravens & Noll, we have a great deal of experience representing clients across a broad range of personal injury practice areas. When people get hurt due to the negligence or inattentiveness of another person, they might be able to recover monetary compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, and additional medical treatment. It is important to seek the counsel of an attorney who is knowledgeable about medical malpractice, and can effectively guide you to a successful resolution in your case.
Surgical errors, unfortunately, can come in many forms, including:
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Removing the incorrect organ
- Amputating the incorrect limb
- Surgical instruments left in the body
- Anesthetic errors
- Improperly monitoring vital signs
- Improperly trained surgical staff
- Damaging nerves or other connective tissue
- Improper closing
- Failure to monitor post-surgical complications

After listening to the facts of your case, we will educate you on the potential challenges of the lawsuit. If further representation is necessary, we will attempt to settle your case with the liable party’s insurance carrier.
