Surgery Malpractice Lawyers Dedicated to Protecting Clients Harmed by Surgical Errors in Palm Beach County, Broward County and Across South Florida

Surgeries are difficult and complicated, and every single surgery carries risks that cannot be completely eliminated. Despite this, you expect that your surgeon and other doctors are acting in your best interests while you are literally trusting them with your life. While not all bad surgical outcomes are the result of malpractice, surgeons are highly trained professionals, and surgical errors can often be avoided when the surgeon and other healthcare professionals properly exercise the skill and caution necessary in the field. When a surgeon performs negligently, the results can be devastating to the victim.

Frequently Asked Questions About Surgical Malpractice in South Florida

How do I know whether my surgeon made an error during my operation?

I was completely asleep and there was no mention of complications afterward. Because most patients have no formal medical training, it is not surprising that surgical errors are difficult to uncover and prove. The first step to determining what happened in your case is to consult with a skilled surgical malpractice lawyer who has the resources necessary to handle these cases. After we review your medical records, if the cause of your harm is still unclear, we will retain a trained medical professional with expertise in the type of surgery you underwent to determine what happened. In any medical malpractice case, it is necessary to first obtain the opinion of a medical expert who can testify to the fact that his or her fellow surgeon committed malpractice in making the error that caused your harm.

How much will it cost to prove that my surgeon committed a surgical error that amounted to malpractice?

Our lawyers work on a contingency basis, so you do not have to worry about providing us with compensation until we recover financial compensation for you. These cases can be expensive to prove, but we take care of advancing the funds necessary to engage the necessary expert witnesses and prepare your case for negotiations with the relevant insurance companies, and even for trial in court if a formal lawsuit becomes necessary.
