Surgical Errors/Medication Errors
All types of surgery have known risks and potential complications. However, some procedures go seriously wrong because of negligence on the part of the surgeon, anesthesiologist or other licensed medical professionals. If you have reason to believe that your own or a family member’s adverse outcome was caused by a surgical error, our attorneys will take your concerns seriously.
Meagher & Meagher is a premier resource for people seriously harmed by medical malpractice in Westchester County and throughout New York. Led by our principal trial lawyer Christopher B. Meagher, we have earned two of the largest verdicts for victims of medical negligence ever awarded by New York juries.
We Take Action For Victims Of Surgical And Post-Surgical Negligence
At our long-standing law firm in White Plains, we have the knowledge, experience and resources to assess whether you should file a lawsuit seeking financial compensation. Although surgical errors take many forms, notable cases have arisen from:
- A surgeon leaving a medical instrument, sponge or other foreign object in the surgical cavity
- Performance of an unnecessary surgery — or operation on the wrong body part
- Failures to respond to and effectively address complications during or after surgery
- Inadequate post-surgical care necessary to prevent life-threatening infections
Medical malpractice cases are challenging to prove and win, but our legal team is up to that challenge. We firmly believe that accountability must be enforced within the medical profession — and that patients have a fundamental right to expect diligence and adherence to the standard of care.
