Tallahassee Surgical Malpractice Lawyers
When A Surgical Procedure Makes Things Worse Instead Of Better
Undergoing surgery comes with risks; however, the majority of those risks can be avoided if the surgical team pays attention and does the job correctly. When an individual or the team as a whole fails, your life can be on the line. If you or someone you love has been harmed by surgical malpractice, our Tallahassee attorneys will hold those responsible for surgery errors accountable for their actions.

We can do this because we prepare each case for trial, we offer the quality customer service that only a small firm can provide and we have the resources to see every case through to its end. Our goal is to conclude your case to your satisfaction.
Failing To Follow Their Own Best Practices
Surgical teams have specific procedures they are required to follow to avoid making mistakes. Unfortunately, many of these are rushed or overlooked in the interest of time. Errors during surgery can have lasting effects on you, the patient. Common errors we have seen and pursued compensation for include:
- Surgery on the wrong part of the body
- Unnecessary surgery
- Nicking or cutting organs or tissue surrounding the surgical location
- Misreading or ignoring laboratory results and X-rays
- Failure to follow up with a patient after surgery
- Premature discharge of a patient
- Delaying surgery
- Surgical instruments or materials left inside the body
- Post-surgery infections
Our attorneys will review your medical records as well as surgical procedures and any prior hospital misconduct. We consult with medical professionals as to how the negligence occurred and how you will be affected by the surgical error in the long run. We know the harm you have suffered is real, and we want to help you by recovering compensation for your injury as well as others by preventing these errors from happening again.
Those Who Are Negligent Should Be Held Accountable
All cases are taken on a contingency basis, so you pay nothing unless your case is successfully resolved.
