Surgical Errors

Connecticut Attorneys: Surgical Errors

Surgery can cure an amazing array of illnesses – when everything goes according to plan. Surgical errors are not common, but when they occur, the results may include damage to tissue or organs, a perforated bowel, internal hemorrhaging, or a stroke. Negligence in hospital procedures or operating procedures can lead to deadly infections. An anesthesia error may result in the classic tragedy – a successful surgery that leads to death.

At Ury & Moskow, our trial lawyers have the experience and the resources to identify cases where surgical errors constitute medical malpractice. Our attorneys have successfully recovered compensation for our clients in cases involving surgical malpractice. Please contact our Fairfield, Connecticut, or Washington, DC, office if you would like one of our lawyers to perform a case evaluation and provide a free consultation. Our firm serves clients in Norwalk, Stamford, Bridgeport, New Haven, Hartford, Danbury, Waterbury and all of Connecticut, and in New York and Washington, DC.

Leaving a foreign object, such as a sponge or a surgical instrument object, inside the patient is a completely preventable surgical error and almost certainly the result of surgical negligence. The effect on the patient may be infection, pain, and the need for additional surgery. Basic hand-washing procedures could prevent a common surgical complication, sepsis - an infection of the bloodstream. Sepsis can lead to an extended hospital stay, thousands of dollars in added costs, and a higher risk of death. Our attorneys, with the help of medical experts, demonstrate for juries the cause and extent of our clients' losses due to surgical malpractice.

If you have been injured as the result of a negligent surgical error, our lawyers will work vigorously to recover compensation for your loss. That compensation can include the cost of the medical treatment made necessary by the error, pain and suffering, and compensation for the negative impact on your quality of life.

Our trial attorneys have recovered substantial verdicts and settlements through litigation and out-of-court negotiations for victims of surgical errors. The lawyers work with nationally recognized medical experts to successfully resolve medical malpractice cases for our Connecticut clients. The law firm of Ury & Moskow provides personal attention to our clients and applies legal sophistication to secure compensation on their behalf after improper care or treatment by medical providers. As personal injury attorneys, we understand that it may be impossible to completely recover from the damage and loss caused by these situations, but we will vigorously pursue a resolution that will compensate you to the full extent available under the law.

Contact the surgical malpractice attorneys at Ury & Moskow today for a free consultation and case review. Surgical error and other medical malpractice cases are taken on a contingency basis, meaning there are no fees until we recover compensation for your injuries and you owe no attorneys' fees at all if you do not successfully recover on your claim.
