Surgical Errors

Surgical errors maim and kill too many, say our Ohio attorneys

Elk & Elk’s Ohio injury lawyers think there’s no excuse for negligence in the ER

Anywhere from 44,000 to 98,000 people per year in the U.S. die in hospitals from medical errors, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. Even considering the lower end of the estimate, that’s more preventable deaths than can be blamed on auto accidents (about 43,500), breast cancer (about 43,000) or AIDS (about 16,500), the agency reports.

At Elk & Elk Co., Ltd., we believe even one preventable surgical error injury or death is one too many and our Ohio medical malpractice lawyers have the experience, skills, resources and support staff to vigorously pursue and hold accountable the negligent parties responsible for providing the kind of substandard care that leads to surgical mistake injuries and deaths.

If someone you know has suffered from a mistake during surgery, our lawyers want to hear from you. We have helped countless injury victims seek the compensation they needed to recover from a surgical error, and we can help you, too. Call 1-800-ELK-OHIO or contact us online to schedule a free consultation.

A law firm that aggressively pursues maximum compensation

Surgical error victims may face a lifetime of medical needs and lost opportunities to earn a fair wage. And often, what actually occurred and why is a complex mystery. Our staff takes pride in reviewing your claim and providing an answer to you and your family as to what happened. When the injury was the fault of the provider, we will aggressively seek compensation for your claim.

We place immeasurable trust in the people from whom we seek medical advice and treatment. When a trusted health care provider’s negligence causes more damage than originally existed, there’s an overwhelming sense of fear, anger, disgust and mistrust. No amount of money can repair the damage of a surgical error, which can sometimes lead to wrongful death.
