Pittsburgh Surgical Error Attorneys Fighting for Accountability
We hold negligent surgeons responsible for their actions
The simplest surgery can go awry. Even the most practiced surgeons make mistakes. There are risks to any surgical procedure, but sometimes, a death or adverse outcome is directly attributable to the negligence of the surgeon, anesthesiologist, or another medical professional.
If you are convinced that preventable errors caused injury or death or are skeptical of the hospital’s explanation, trust your instincts. The experienced Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyers of Hal Waldman & Associates can determine if you have grounds for a surgical malpractice claim. Your surgical error case matters to us. We care. We are on your side. Contact our Pittsburgh law firm to schedule a free consultation with a lawyer about your claim.
Medical malpractice in surgery and recovery
When something is wrong, you may have no choice but to trust the surgeon and surgical staff with your body and your life. Some adverse outcomes are honest errors or the result of unforeseen circumstances once the surgery begins. However, some mistakes are preventable, especially when medical professionals deviate from standard procedures and safety protocols.
Hal Waldman & Associates can investigate any surgical error resulting in lasting harm or fatality. We have extensive experience with cases involving:
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Cutting errors (severed nerve, perforated bowel, punctured trachea, etc.)
- Anesthesia errors
- Botched installation of artificial joints or limbs
- Retained foreign objects (sponges and surgical instruments)
- Surgery-acquired infection
- Failure to monitor in post-op and recovery
Committed to holding surgeons and hospitals accountable
Surgical malpractice cases are difficult to win. They often come down to a battle of experts. Hal Waldman & Associates has the resources to hire surgical specialists and nurse consultants who can review the medical records and attest that the surgical team did not adhere to accepted medical standards and the hospital’s own check-downs and procedures.
Our Pittsburgh medical malpractice attorneys work with many professionals to demonstrate the extent of harm and our client's future needs, such as additional corrective surgery, lost earnings, permanent disability, reduced life expectancy, pain and suffering, and lost enjoyment of life.
