When it comes to maintaining your health, having surgery is one of the most serious steps you can take.

An experienced Chicago surgical error lawyer can help you protect your rights.
At Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, we are dedicated to helping victims of malpractice get proper medical care and fair financial compensation. The line between acceptable mistakes and real malpractice is very thin, so it is important to have an attorney on your side who can help you build a strong case for court.
Protecting Your Rights After A Surgical Error
There is a high burden of proof for all medical malpractice cases, but surgery error claims are some of the hardest to prove in court. Many surgeons are of the mindset that they do not make mistakes. And due to the nature of their jobs, errors must be egregious to constitute malpractice.
Surgical errors are especially common in laparoscopic surgery. Surgeons often fail to convert to regular procedures when they are not succeeding laparoscopically. It could also be malpractice to attempt some laparoscopic surgery.
Malpractice also occurs post-surgery. While making an error in surgery is often understandable, failure to recognize an error or symptoms of an error can constitute negligence. From immediate recovery and postoperative evaluation to the long-term impact of an error, your health care providers must properly diagnose and consider your condition.
