Surgery is not a precise practice in many cases. The reality of surgery is almost “slice and dice.” It is imperfect, and errors do occur more often than many people realize. At Morris, Downing & Sherred, LLP, our medical malpractice lawyers are sophisticated prosecutors of surgical error injuries, including wrongful death. When surgeons, anesthesiologists and other members of medical teams depart from the standard of care or make preventable errors, we stand up for the rights of victimized patients.
Based in Newton, we serve clients throughout Sussex County and North Jersey. Our law firm handles all matter of surgical error cases that have resulted in serious injuries to patients such as:
- Instruments or medical devices left in the body
- Puncture or perforation of organs
- Puncture or perforation of major blood vessels or arteries
- Misread pathology, lab tests or X-rays
- Removal of incorrect body part
- Botched amputation
- Improper monitoring of patient during surgery
- Anesthesia administration errors
- Negligence in monitoring and caring for the patient post-surgery
- Cosmetic surgery errors
