As a surgical patient, you expect that the professionals treating you are properly trained and equipped to respond to complications that may occur throughout your procedure.
When medical professionals make a surgical mistake, you could suffer severe injuries that diminish your quality of life and are expensive to treat.

Our attorneys have fought for countless West Virginia victims of surgical negligence and other medical malpractice matters.
What Are Examples Of Surgical Negligence?
A surgical error can occur before, during or after your operation and involve any member of your surgical team. For a successful operation to occur, each team member must be prepared, fully alert and ready to adjust at a moment’s notice.

- Medication errors, such as overmedication and anesthesia errors
- Post-operation complications relating to infections or leaving instruments in the patient’s body
- Surgeries performed on the wrong side or on the wrong organ
