O'Fallon Surgical Error Lawyers

Bringing Malpractice Claims Against Surgeons and Hospitals

Surgery is always risky, but there are some very basic steps that surgeons and their staff can take to reduce the risks of surgical procedures. When providers fail to take those steps, they can be held accountable for injuries to their patients and fatalities caused by their negligence.

At the law firm of Kujawski Marcus, LLC, our O'Fallon surgical error attorneys help clients in the St. Louis metropolitan area bring medical malpractice claims against negligent surgeons and hospitals. We are committed to helping our clients get the full compensation they deserve.

Representing the Victims of All Types of Surgical Mistakes

If you have been injured or have lost a loved one as a result of a surgical error, our experienced trial lawyers will carefully investigate your case and diligently pursue your medical malpractice claim. We handle cases involving all types of surgical errors, including:

  • Organ puncture: When internal organs are perforated during surgery, patients can suffer infections that can become septic and potentially fatal. Organ puncture is particularly common when laparoscopic weight-loss or gallbladder surgery is performed negligently.
  • Wrong-site surgery: Surgeons and nurses are expected to follow careful procedures to ensure that surgeries are performed on the correct sites. Their failure to follow these procedures can have serious consequences, up to amputation of the wrong limb.
  • Retained surgical instruments: One of the most common surgical errors is the mistake of leaving a sponge, a pair of scissors or another instrument inside a patient. Retained surgical instruments can cause serious complications, requiring additional risky surgery.
