Surgical Accident Attorney

Leading Surgical Errors Lawyer Based in Philadelphia

When your healthcare team recommends surgery for your illness, disease, or condition, you trust that this is a necessary procedure for you. You also trust the healthcare professionals in the room, including the attending surgeon,  anesthesiologist, residents, and operating room (OR) nurse, are taking every precaution necessary to ensure you have a safe, successful surgery. Unfortunately, despite all the advancements we’ve experienced in technology, human error and worse, human negligence, still happen, resulting in life-changing injuries and even death. As medical malpractice attorneys here at Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law, we see these cases far too often, and we know how to ensure that every member of the team, from a resident to the hospital administration, is held responsible for the damages or death caused to you or a family member.


What Constitutes a Surgical Error Case?

Surgical malpractice can come in many different forms, and it’s important to have a team at your side that knows how to navigate surgery-related cases, to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. Examples of surgical error cases we’ve represented and won include:

  • Wrong site;
  • Wrong body part;
  • Retained object, meaning a surgical tool or other tool is left inside the body
  • Incision errors, including perforated organs, severed nerves, or severed blood vessels; 
  • Poor or improper technique;
  • Mistakes with anesthesia;
  • Post-op negligence, including untreated surgical complications;
  • Surgical complications caused by negligence;
  • Permanent injury, including brain and spinal cord injuries;
  • Acquired infections, including MRSA and staph;
  • And improper, unnecessary, or misdiagnosed surgery.

The expert surgical error attorneys at Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law have stood with hundreds of families who have experienced this devastating form of medical malpractice—and won.
