Surgical Errors

Getting Compensation in Surgical Error Cases

Have you or a loved one suffered a serious injury because of a surgical error? Have you lost a family member due to wrongful death caused by operating room malpractice?

The opposition will make it difficult for you to obtain compensation for the wrong you have suffered. They will bring in experts to prove that they did everything by the book. They will fight to protect their reputation in the medical field.

At the law firm of Scott & Cain in Knoxville, Tennessee, we know how to fight back. We will bring in our own experts to prove negligence. We will help you get a positive outcome.

Surgery Is Complex, but That's No Excuse for Negligence

Our attorneys have the ability to prove hospital malpractice. Sometimes, a serious injury is caused because a surgical procedure is flawed from the start. The doctor may have operated on the wrong body part or conducted a surgery that was actually unnecessary. They may have left implements in the body or mishandled the anesthesia.

In other situations, surgical errors are more complex. Many cases involve injuries to organs during surgery or intra-abdominal puncture injuries. The opposition will claim that these are risks that are involved in surgery and could not be avoided. We help prove otherwise.

We can handle a wide variety of surgical error cases, including those that involve:

  • Laparoscopic surgery malpractice
  • Arthroscopic surgery errors
  • Gastric bypass mistakes
  • Cancer surgery errors
  • Robotic surgery malpractice
