Fighting for Clients Injured by Surgical and Medical Errors
Serving Virginia, including Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads
You had to put a lot of trust in your surgeon when you went in for surgery. Yet, you came out of surgery injured by a mistake that shouldn't have taken place. You trusted your doctor, maybe even a specialist, to correctly diagnose your illness.
They failed. What now?
Medical professionals are trained to assess and treat illness. They are well-paid and respected in their communities. But they also have a duty of basic competence. If they make a serious mistake, your condition may worsen and at that point be untreatable. A condition that might have been cured, goes untreated.
Thousands of people suffer unnecessarily and even die each year of diseases such as cancer, when doctors, hospitals, clinics and other parties fail them. If you or a loved one has suffered such harm, you have a right to pursue monetary compensation.
Hold Your Doctors and Surgeons Accountable
At Montagna & Montagna, P.C., we never cut corners and our lawyers strongly believe that other professionals should be held accountable when they do. If your negligent surgeon, nurse, doctor or other medical professional is not held accountable for harming you, it may happen to someone else.
Common Surgical Mistakes
Injuries and death are caused by many possible mistakes made during surgery, including:
- Anesthesia mistakes
- Wrong site surgery/ surgery on incorrect body part
- Surgical instruments left inside the patient during and after surgery
- Wrong surgery performed/ surgery on the wrong patient
- Improper care after surgery/ postsurgical negligence
- Infections after surgery caused by surgical errors
Errors can happen in any type of surgery, such as: gynecological, cardiovascular, neurological, orthopedic and plastic/cosmetic surgeries. Regardless of your surgery or condition, we will work hard to get results for you.
Wrongful Death Caused by Surgical Errors or Misdiagnosis
Serious and even fatal injuries are not uncommon when a doctor acts negligently. If your loved one died due to a medical or surgical error, we will help you bring a wrongful death action on his or her behalf. You deserve some recognition of your terrible loss.
