Many risks are associated with surgery, and surgeons may not be able to prevent all adverse effects. However, injuries that are attributable to a deviation from the standard of care that surgeons and doctors are to adhere to are not acceptable. Injuries that result from distraction, insufficient skill, or sheer negligence require the assistance of an attorney. At Zayed Law Offices, we ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve when you suffer from a preventable injury at the hands of a medical professional. A Chicago area attorney at Zayed Law Offices will hold the negligent parties responsible whether it is an anesthesiologist, doctor, surgeon or hospital.

We will also ensure that you receive the financial resources you will need, now and in the future.

There can be many causes for surgical errors including inexperience, inattention or negligence. Common types of surgery errors that we handle include:

Recovering full compensation can be extremely difficult in surgical error cases without the help of an experienced medical malpractice attorney. It can also be very difficult to learn the truth and the full extent of any error from hospitals and doctors. This is in part because surgeons and hospitals will not admit to having committed medical malpractice in the event of such an occurrence. Hospitals and doctors will avoid informing victims and their families of a surgical error or a of departure from the requisite standard of care.
