Medical Malpractice

Illinois Lawyers Representing Victims of Medical Negligence In Cook County

We trust doctors; we have no other choice. Because of their unique knowledge, training and expertise, we need their services to help us stay healthy. When it comes to surgeons, we do more than place our trust in them: we place our very lives in their hands. That is why they are paid so handsomely, and that is why they are held to a higher standard of care than those in other professions. When physicians, surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, dentists and other medical professionals make negligent errors, they should be held responsible for their errors, and they should shoulder the financial burden for the damages they’ve caused.

If you have suffered a serious personal injury or illness, or have lost a loved one in a wrongful death caused by the error of a medical care provider, call Goldberg Weisman Cairo at 800-392-7637.

Surgical Errors

Cook County Medical Negligence Attorneys

The maxim “everybody makes mistakes” simply does not apply when it comes to surgery. When we go in for surgery and the anesthesia starts taking effect, we are literally placing our lives in the hands of the surgeon. We trust in that person’s training, experience and competence. When mistakes are made, the consequences can be catastrophic, even deadly.

At Goldberg Weisman Cairo, we provide exceptional personal injury and wrongful death litigation representation for clients and families throughout Illinois.

Problems With Surgery In Chicago Hospitals

GWC lawyers are prepared to handle any type of surgical error. Some of the most common surgical errors include:

Incorrect amputation/surgery on the wrong body part
Leaving surgical equipment and other foreign objects in the body
Surgical anesthesia errors
Unsanitary surgical equipment
Some of these errors are proof in themselves of some kind of medical malpractice. Operating on the wrong body part is a classic example. Without someone making a serious error, this type of thing simply does not happen. In most other cases, though, establishing negligence is not as simple.
