Lawyers Handling Surgical Error Cases

When you undergo surgery, you are placing your trust in the surgeon, nursing staff and the rest of the medical team. When that confidence is broken by a surgical error, you can be left with lasting physical and psychological scars. In some cases, these mistakes can even be fatal.

Surgical malpractice claims are complicated and require an understanding of medical terminology and procedures to be able to identify surgical errors. At Sbrogna, Brunelle & Donius, LLP, our proven attorneys are prepared to help you with your negligence claim.

If you or a loved one has been injured by surgical error or you have suffered from some other form of surgery malpractice in Massachusetts, we invite you to talk with us about your situation in a free consultation. Complete our contact form or call us locally at 508-809-7555. We can help.

Understanding Surgeon Malpractice

Our background and our track record set us apart. Our medical malpractice attorneys have over 100 years of combined legal experience. We are knowledgeable and prepared. We are aggressive litigators who use bold legal strategies and tactics to achieve the results for our clients.

While there is a risk with any surgical procedure, surgeon malpractice comes into play when a surgeon has violated a standard of care by failing to provide the level of care as expected of an average qualified surgeon in the same practice area under similar circumstances. Our lawyers have handled a variety of surgeon negligence claims, including:

  • Performing surgery on the wrong part of the body
  • Performing surgery on the wrong patient
  • Performing the wrong procedure
  • Making an anesthesia error resulting in an overdose
  • Puncturing or perforating an internal organ such as the intestine or bowel during gallbladder removal, ovarian cyst removal, hysterectomy or hernia surgery
  • Leaving surgical implements in the patient, such as sponges, needles, scalpels, gauze or other objects

We have also helped clients pursue medical malpractice claims for cataract surgery mistakes and carpal tunnel surgery errors.

Recent research published in the medical journal Surgery estimates surgical mistakes happen approximately 80 times each week. These errors are not confined to new doctors. People are injured by physicians of all ages and all levels of experience. Surgical mistakes can also result in deadly infections.
