Surgical Accidents

Despite technological advances such as high-resolution scopes and robotic assistance, surgical procedures are still prepped, performed and overseen by humans. Patients are at grave risk from mistakes or misconduct by any member of the surgical team, from the attending surgeon and surgical residents to the anesthesiologist and operating room nurses.

Surgery gone wrong is the most common source of medical malpractice lawsuits. The Pittsburgh attorneys of Rosen Louik & Perry, P.C., have a long history of holding surgeons and hospitals accountable for botched operations resulting in serious injury or death.

Proven Success In Surgical Error Cases

We investigate surgical malpractice cases against medical providers in Allegheny County and Western Pennsylvania. Not every bad outcome of surgery constitutes malpractice, but we have obtained verdicts and settlements in a wide range of surgery-related cases:

  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Retained objects (sponges or medical instruments left inside the patient)
  • Scalpel errors/poor technique (perforated bowels, severed arteries or nerves)
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Negligent care in post-op and recovery (failure to monitor)
  • Complications of bariatric surgery (e.g., gastric bypass)
  • Permanent harm from brain surgery or spinal surgery
  • Negligence in laparoscopic procedures
  • Birth injuries from mismanagement of C-section delivery
  • Hospital-acquired infections (staph, MRSA)
  • Untreated complications of surgery (hemorrhage, blood clots)
  • Unnecessary surgery stemming from misdiagnosis

We Review Hundreds Of Surgical Mistake Cases Every Year

While investigating a case, we secure complete copies of the patient's medical records, pertinent X-rays and photographs taken during surgery. We scrutinize operative reports describing the patient's surgery, together with subsequent notes describing intraoperative complications, to discover whether surgical error has produced or contributed to our client's injury.

Our Pittsburgh medical malpractice lawyers stand ready to review your case, discover what happened and tell you whether surgical negligence contributed to your family's tragedy. Please contact our Pittsburgh office to arrange a free consultation.
