Surgical Errors

To say that undergoing surgery can be nerve-wracking is an understatement. Whether you are going in for a routine procedure or major surgery, you are putting your life in the hands of the surgeon. You trust that your doctor will do his or her job and nothing will go wrong. But something did. And now you want to know why. Our surgical errors lawyers will help you find the answers to your questions after you have been injured by a surgical error.

Our Dayton surgical error lawyers pride themselves on aggressively pursuing and holding responsible healthcare providers whose negligence in the operating room resulted in serious patient injury. We have successfully represented hundreds of Dayton residents in medical malpractice lawsuits involving:

Medical malpractice that involves surgical errors is implicated in the deaths of some 7,000 people per year. The financial impact of surgical errors is exorbitant, costing the U.S. healthcare system somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.5 billion annually. The human cost is even higher, as many surgical error victims suffer significant nerve or organ damage, infection, scarring and psychological trauma. Far too often, devastating surgical errors are the result of negligent, careless or reckless healthcare providers. The Dayton surgical error attorneys at The O’Keefe Firm believe no one should ever have to suffer physically, financially, or emotionally because of a healthcare provider’s negligence. That’s why all of the surgical error lawyers in our Dayton office are so committed to achieving justice for the people in our community who have been injured because of carelessness in the operating room.

Heading into the operating room is an anxiety provoking experience for any patient. You are literally putting your life in the hands of the surgeon, nurses and anesthetists who will perform your procedure. You have every right to expect that these healthcare professionals have the training and skill needed to ensure everything will go smoothly during your surgery. Unfortunately, even the most experienced operating room staff can make a serious mistake. However, no one should sustain a serious injury while undergoing surgery because of the negligent actions of surgeons and other medical professionals. When that happens, victims and their families deserve to be compensated for their pain and suffering.

Medical malpractice cases that involve surgical errors can be hard to prove. Most hospitals and surgical facilities don’t routinely inform patients that a mistake occurred, unless the mistake is obvious (i.e. wrong site surgery). The only witnesses to the error are usually members of the surgical team who were present in the operating room, and these individuals are usually reluctant to tell the patient or their family anything. To successfully pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit based on a surgical error, you will need an attorney on your side who knows how to prosecute these difficult cases.

The O’Keefe Firm has the resources and access to clinical experts who will review all aspects of your case to get to the bottom of what really happened during your surgery. If it’s determined that you were the victim of medical malpractice, our Dayton surgical error lawyers will fight the big healthcare corporations and insurance companies to ensure you are treated fairly and your legal rights are protected. Our reputation as an effective advocate for the injured means our medical malpractice attorneys will be able to negotiate from a position of strength. While this often allows our legal team to reach excellent settlements on behalf of our surgical error clients, The O’Keefe Firm will be prepared to take your case to a jury if the Defendants aren’t willing to work with us in good faith.
