Every year millions of surgical procedures are completed on patients for a wide variety of reasons, from life-saving medical necessities to recommended surgeries or elective procedures. While most of the time patients see a positive outcome as a result of their surgeries, there are times when doctors make serious mistakes that have the potential to create life-changing consequences. Medical malpractice resulting from surgical errors is a very serious issue, and here at McGehee ☆ Chang, Landgraf, Feiler, we treat every case with an eye for detail in order to get the best outcome possible.
All surgeries carry some degree of risk. However, years of education, training and experience provide surgeons with the skills necessary to get the job done correctly. Unfortunately, when hours are too long, paperwork gets confused, or negligence plays a role, the results can be devastating for the patient and his or her family members. While permanent injury may occur, death can also be the outcome. We are dedicated to getting our clients compensation for lost wages and emotional damages through medical malpractice claims associated with surgical errors.
