Attorneys Handling Surgical Error Claims In North San Diego County
Before surgery, patients must sign consent forms acknowledging that they are aware of the known risks and complications. However, some complications and risks are not known. If you believe that you experienced a surgical complication that was the result of negligence, or if you are a medical professional who has been accused of malpractice, the attorneys at Nield Law Group, APC, can evaluate the case to determine what transpired — and what options may be available to you.
Representation For Patients Who Have Suffered Injuries
As North San Diego County lawyers, we handle cases involving all types of surgical errors such as:
- Contraindicated surgery
- Incorrect surgery due to misdiagnosis
- Foreign objects — such as sponges, screws or staples — left in the patient, leading to infection
- Surgery performed improperly
- Surgeon lacked requisite experience
- Pediatric cases
- Orthopedic surgery
Though you signed a consent form prior to the surgery, it does not mean you do not have a case. We will carefully examine the evidence in your case to determine whether surgeon negligence caused your injury.
