Fort Lauderdale Attorney Handling Surgical Errors

There are inherent risks in every surgical operation. Typically, the benefits outweigh the potential risks, and families decide to move forward with operations. Sadly, some risks are unavoidable, and the results of surgery do not go as planned. In other situations, however, negligence from the surgeon or other health care staff can cause serious or fatal injuries.

If your loved one was killed or suffered from serious, unexpected complications, it can be difficult to know whether that was the result of medical malpractice or a risk of surgery. Thankfully, an experienced and dedicated lawyer can help uncover the truth.

At my firm — The Law Office of Michelle Cohen Levy, P.A. — I help families in Fort Lauderdale and throughout Florida find the closure they need after a surgical error. I represent families in a range of cases, including:

  • Medical equipment left in the body
  • Performing the surgery incorrectly so the healing process isn't proper
  • Failure to monitor the patient's heart rate or oxygen
  • Recommending unnecessary surgery
  • Failure to perform necessary surgery
  • Wrong site surgery

I know this is a frightening time for families, and I am here to help you find the answers you need. I work closely with clients at every stage of the process, helping ensure you know what to expect as we move forward.
