Specialized Surgery Error Attorneys in Palm Beach Gardens, FL Protect Victim Rights and Fight for Favorable Outcomes in Surgical Malpractice Claims in Palm Beach County and Throughout Florida
Every surgery comes with inherent risks. As such, surgeries are often the last course of treatment. However, whenever a medical team decides that a surgical procedure is needed, they must perform the surgery with the care, professionalism, and knowledge needed to guarantee a positive outcome for the patient. While some surgery-related injuries and accidents are unavoidable, many others are the result of surgeon mistakes or negligence. If you or a loved one was injured in any way during a surgical procedure, contact our Palm Beach Gardens surgical malpractice lawyers today to learn about how we can help you secure the compensation you deserve for surgery errors and the pain, suffering, and other losses they caused that you should have not had to endure.

All of these factors can lead to serious surgical errors. The CDC reports that accidents and unintentional injuries are a leading cause of death in the United States, and they are responsible for approximately 100 million emergency room visits every year. However, surgery malpractice injuries and deaths are sometimes underreported, according to a Johns Hopkins Medicine study. This study found that medical treatment errors cause approximately 250,000 deaths every year. Surgery errors and the injuries they can cause can last a lifetime. They can also be prohibitively expensive to treat. If you have reason to believe that you or a loved one was affected in any way by one or more of these factors, you may have grounds for a surgery malpractice claim.
