Experienced Phoenix Attorneys Representing Victims of Surgical Errors
Seeking justice for individuals injured in operating rooms
When a surgeon does more to harm you than help you, it is vital to immediately contact a malpractice attorney in Phoenix experienced in cases of surgical errors. Your legal right to compensation may depend on filing your lawsuit within a statutory deadline, which, in Arizona, is two years from the date you discovered or should have discovered the injury for adults and two years from your 18th birthday if you were harmed as a minor. At the law firm of Lewis and Pokora, our knowledgeable lawyers can provide you with the guidance needed to secure compensation.
Comprehensive legal support for your surgical malpractice case
Our firm understands that you are concerned about your health, your family and your future after a mistake in the operating room puts your life or the life of a loved one in jeopardy. We also understand the obstacles associated with surgical error malpractice, including lost income, medical bills, hospitalization, nursing care and various other expenses that arise. As experienced Phoenix operating room error attorneys, we keep our focus on the financial aspects of your case so that you can better cope with the emotional aspects of recovering from a surgical accident that causes a personal injury or wrongful death fatality. We’ve handled surgical malpractice cases including, but not limited to the following:
Surgical device failure
A defect in an implant, prosthetic device, heart pump or other foreign object embedded in your body may cause you injury, illness or other adverse symptoms. If you suspect that a medical device is causing you to suffer a greater injury, it is vital to talk to our Phoenix medical malpractice lawyers who also have experience handling products liability cases, some of which call for class action participation.
Nerve damage injuries
When a needle or other sharp surgical tool punctures the wrong artery or vein, you could become a victim of severe and chronic debilitation. A surgeon who makes this type of error can be held liable for the needless pain and other damages you endure as a result. An experienced Phoenix spinal cord injury lawyer from Lewis and Pokora can provide you with the information you need to recover compensation for the paralysis, facial tics or other adverse effects you suffer from a surgical error causing nerve damage.
Fatal surgical errors
When a surgeon’s mistake leads to the death of your loved one, you can seek coverage for the residual emotional and financial losses, as well as for funeral and burial costs. Our Phoenix wrongful death attorneys help survivors of the deceased obtain compensation.
