Chicago Surgical Errors Law Firm

Representing Illinois Victims of Surgical Errors in Medical Malpractice Claims

Surgery, whether routine or complex, can be a frightening experience. Patients entrust their health and well-being to a team of doctors, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and surgical nurses before, during and after the surgery. Unfortunately, surgical errors can occur at any stage of the process, causing medical complications, lifelong injuries, and even death.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a surgical error, the dedicated Chicago surgical error attorneys at Cogan & Power, P.C. are here to help. We not only obtain substantial verdicts and settlements for our clients, including $11.4 million for a man whose cervical cord was injured during surgery, we take a personal interest in our clients. We strive to make your recovery process easier by providing individual client attention and personalized service in a friendly, warm, supportive environment. Every client has a one-on-one relationship with a partner who is always available by phone, even after-hours. It means a lot to us that many of our clients have remained good friends of ours long after their cases were resolved.

Contact our office at (312) 477-2500 to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our knowledgeable Chicago medical malpractice attorneys.

Complexities of Surgical Error Cases

Surgical error malpractice cases, like all medical malpractice cases, are factually and legally complex. Surgical error lawsuits require the compilation and evaluation of comprehensive medical records, as well as the input and testimony of medical and surgical experts. Because our attorneys have almost 200 years of combined legal experience, and include a former surgical nurse and former hospital counsel, we know how to successfully, efficiently, and thoroughly ready a surgical error malpractice case for trial. And together our lawyers have developed an extensive network of medical experts.

Common Surgical Errors

Surgical errors can occur at any stage of the process: pre-op, post-op and during surgery. Some of the more common types of surgical errors include:

  • Wrong surgical plan
  • Wrong surgical technique
  • Surgical instruments left in the body
  • Injury to internal organs, blood vessels, and nerves
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Failure to monitor recovery process
  • Misdiagnosis resulting in delayed surgery
  • Post-surgical infections
