Surgical Errors in Birmingham, Alabama

Thousands of people are injured, scarred and even die as a result of medical malpractice and negligence before, during and after surgery.

Surgical errors can occur during preoperative and post-operative care as well as during surgery. Surgical errors include inadequate pre-operative evaluations, anesthesia errors, surgery on the wrong body part or wrong side of the body, wrong organ and even the wrong person.

Inadvertent puncturing of internal organs during a surgical procedure that goes undetected and causes a life-threatening infection and retained surgical instruments and materials are other common surgical mistakes that often lead to serious complications, intense pain and suffering and wrongful death. Failure to monitor vital signs adequately after surgery also causes some people to suffer complications and die following a surgical procedure.

The medical malpractice attorneys at The Cochran Firm believe victims of surgical errors deserve to be financially compensated and have been very successful in litigating claims against surgeons for damages for your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills and any other expenses incurred due to the error made by the surgeon. Our medical malpractice attorneys will work with you to determine exactly how you were affected and what fair financial compensation you should receive.

If you live in the Birmingham, Alabama area and you or someone you love has been the victim of a surgical error, please contact The Cochran Firm today to protect your legal rights and get the financial compensation you deserve.
