Cleveland Surgical Error Lawyer
Our Ohio law firm knows how to handle complicated medical malpractice cases
Surgical procedures can be life-saving operations in response to medical emergencies. There’s also no room for errors or mistakes, especially if someone has a severe injury or life-threatening illness. Surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgical nurses and other medical professionals need to follow standards of care and practice safe, effective medicine.
Unfortunately, mistakes often occur in operating rooms in hospitals, emergency rooms and other medical facilities. Worst of all, many of these surgical errors are the result of preventable mistakes. When that happens, injury victims and their family may be eligible to receive financial compensation due to medical malpractice.

Lancione has a well-earned national reputation for his skillful handling of legal cases involving surgical errors. As a result, he has in-depth understanding when it comes to medical negligence law.

How do you know if malpractice caused your injury or loss? It starts with a free consultation with The Lancione Law Firm. We know how to take on legal cases involving a wide range of surgical errors, including:

Our founding attorney, John Lancione, is a third-generation trial lawyer who has dedicated his career to giving a voice to the injured. He understands how to identify and prove surgical malpractice. This may be defined as a failure to provide standard care to a patient before, during or after surgery.
While there is a chance that certain medical procedures will not have the desired result through no fault of a medical professional or facility, there are situations where medical negligence or wrongdoing is the cause of an adverse event. At The Lancione Law Firm, it’s our job to expose these acts of negligence and to demand justice for families.
Surgical errors are difficult to prove. We can help
Surgical errors are one of the most difficult types of malpractice to prove. In most cases, the patient was under general anesthesia or at the very least was under stress or some type of medication. They may have no memory or a muddled recollection of the event, and they do not have the medical knowledge to understand or relay precisely what occurred or what should have occurred.
This is why you need our law firm on your side. It takes a Cleveland surgical malpractice lawyer and an entire team of professionals to effectively investigate and prove that a surgeon, nurse or any other medical professional provided substandard care.

You might think you don’t need a lawyer if you or a loved one was harmed due to a surgical error. An official investigation will likely be conducted to determine what happened. Different state agencies often conduct these investigations. In Ohio, the State Medical Board of Ohio investigates complaints involving medical negligence, including surgical errors.
But it’s important to understand that such investigations are only concerned with whether a medical professional violated standard medical procedures which resulted in a surgical mistake. They are not concerned with whether you are fairly compensated for your medical bills and other injury-related expenses, which can be substantial for many surgical error claims.
When you have our dedicated legal team on your side, you can demand the compensation you rightfully deserve. We also realize your case is about more than just money. It’s about holding surgeons and other medical professionals accountable for their actions. It’s about making sure your injury claim doesn’t slip through the cracks. It’s about respect – for your injury, your legal claim and everything you have gone through since your operation.
