When The Unthinkable Happens: Surgical Errors

Surgery can be a scary prospect. It becomes all the more horrifying when something goes wrong.

Although surgeons undergo years of intensive training and education, they can still make deadly mistakes. At Ellis Law, we're committed to holding surgeons accountable and fighting for justice on behalf of medical malpractice victims.

You Deserve Answers

We handle cases involving severe, life-altering injuries or death that result from negligence on the part of the surgeon, anesthesiologist, nurse anesthetist, perioperative (OR) nurse or hospital.

Some of these cases involve obvious surgical errors — for example, wrong-site surgery or failure to obtain informed consent. Many, however, involve lapses that might not be immediately apparent. Perhaps the surgeon left behind a sponge in the surgical cavity, and the mistake didn't come to light until a life-threatening infection developed. Or maybe the anesthesiologist failed to monitor your vital signs closely.

We understand the frustration that goes along with not knowing what happened. Our job is to help you get answers and closure, along with the compensation you need to move forward.

The Importance Of Expert Medical Testimony

Expert medical testimony can make or break these cases. To make the strongest case possible, we'll enlist the help of respected experts in the surgical field. Our lawyer, staff and co-counsel will work tirelessly to get to the bottom of what happened.
