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 Cleveland surgical malpractice attorney John A. Lancione.
A third-generation trial lawyer who has dedicated his career to giving a voice to the injured, John Lancione 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 negligence or wrongdoing are the cause of an adverse event. At The Lancione Law Firm, we expose these.
We can take on cases involving such surgical errors as:
- C-section mistakes
- Anesthesia malpractice
- Failure to monitor a patient during surgery
- Post-operative infections
- Leaving an object behind in a patient
- Performing the wrong procedure
- Performing surgery on the wrong body part
- Nerve damage during plastic surgery
- Bowel, bladder, or other organ perforation during surgery
- Fires in operating rooms
We are committed to improving conditions for patients across Cleveland and the entire U.S. To find out how we can help you, please call (440) 220-4439 or contact us online.
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 an Cleveland surgical malpractice lawyer and an entire team of professionals to effectively investigate and prove that a surgeon, nurse, or other medical professional provided substandard care.
The Lancione Law Firm has the resources and experience to help you. We have medically-trained staff and are led by a trial lawyer with 30 years of legal experience in this field. Call (440) 220-4439 today!
