What Is Surgical Malpractice & How Does It Affect Patients?
You or a loved one underwent surgery. Of course there were risks associated with the procedure, but you were seriously injured or lost your loved one because a mistake was made by one of the very people you trusted with your care. This mistake changed the course of your life. How can you determine whether malpractice was the cause of your injury or loss? It starts with a free consultation with The Lancione Law Firm.

- Cesarean section mistakes

- Performing surgery on the wrong body part
- Nerve damage during plastic surgery
- Bowel, bladder or any other organ perforation during surgery
- Fires in operating rooms
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 any complex medical procedure is likely to pose risks, and there is a chance that it 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, we expose these.
Surgical Errors Are Difficult To Prove
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. 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.
