Surgical Medical Malpractice in Washington, D.C.

Surgical medical malpractice or surgical errors are responsible for an unusually high number of deaths in the United States annually. Surgical medical malpractice occurs when a surgeon or other member of the surgical team or healthcare facility where the surgery took place failed to provide an accepted standard of care and treatment which resulted in injury or even death.

Studies reveal that 50% of all medical malpractice allegations involve surgical procedures either during pre-operative care, during surgery or post-operatively. Surgical procedures most frequently involved in surgical malpractice allegations involve cosmetic surgery, LASIK eye surgery, gastric bypass surgery and orthopedic or back surgeries.

Financial compensation for victims of surgical medical malpractice may include damages for medical expenses, loss of present and future income, pain and suffering and the loss of quality of life. In the tragic event the surgical error resulted in a death, the family members may also be eligible for financial compensation for their loss.

The surgical medical malpractice attorneys at The Cochran Firm strongly believe victims of surgical errors deserve to be fully compensated for the losses they suffer do to the negligence of others they have entrusted with their care. Our surgical medical malpractice attorneys will work diligently to ensure you get the compensation you need and deserve.
