Surgical Errors

Surgeons, nurses, and hospitals may try to convince you that an unexpected, unfavorable outcome was unavoidable. They won't mention your legal options. Their priorities are to convince you that these mistakes should just be accepted as a known risk of surgery and that they cannot be held responsible.

What Types of Surgical Errors Can You Sue For?

  • Operation on the wrong side of the body
  • Unnecessary operation
  • Amputation of the wrong limb or digit
  • Misread pathology, lab test or X-ray
  • Surgical instruments or devices left in the body
  • Anesthesia complications and monitoring failures
  • Puncture or perforation of an organ
  • Unnecessary tissue damage
  • Perforation of arteries or injuries to blood vessels
  • Severed bile duct
  • Postsurgical injuries from an improperly monitored recovery or infection
  • Foreign body cases

In many cases, medical professionals and hospitals can be held responsible for errors during surgery that cause adverse outcomes. At Alvin F. de Levie & Associates, our team has sued surgeons and hospitals throughout Pennsylvania for medical malpractice that takes place before surgery, during surgery and after surgery. I, attorney Alvin de Levie, have been helping victims and their families obtain legal justice and financial compensation for over 30 years.

Delaying your claim can cause evidence to disappear and witnesses to forget facts and give wrongdoers time to cover their tracks and create excuses. Although the statute of limitations is two years from the date of injury, this time passes quickly. Our lawyers will need time to evaluate your claim and build a solid case for your maximum compensation.

What We Bring to the Table

We will independently investigate your claim, and we will collaborate with experts to determine exactly where medical professionals departed from a recognized standard of care.

The next step is uncovering evidence to prove that this departure was the cause of your serious, life-altering injury. This is typically a complicated process in the medical field that requires diligence and resources. We have what it takes, and we'll stop at nothing to secure the full and fair compensation that you deserve. But the sooner you consult me about your claim, the sooner we can get to work for you.
