SURGICAL ERROR/MISTAKES ATTORNEY
A Surgical Mistake unfortunately happens more than anyone would like to think. A surgical procedure is exactly the wrong situation for an avoidable mistake, and the error tends to have catastrophic consequences.
We understand that surgery is a difficult, sensitive act, and everyone acknowledges that a tragic outcome in a surgery is not necessarily medical malpractice. However, when surgeons violate established standards of care, innocent patients are hurt, and someone should be held accountable.
COMMON SURGICAL MISTAKES
There is a lot that can go wrong during even the most common of surgical procedures, which is why responsible hospitals and surgical teams take extensive precautions. However, all the precautions in the world will occasionally fail when presented with a particularly negligent medical professional.
Common examples of surgical errors that our surgical mistake attorneys see include:
- Wrong site surgeries
- Wrong procedures performed on patients
- Incorrect incisions
- Not properly sterilized equipment
- Damage to nearby organs
- Prolonged surgery
- Surgical tools being left in the patient’s body
- Anesthesia errors, particularly related to allergies
- Accidental damage to surrounding muscles, ligaments, tissue and nerves
- Avoidable infection
REASONS FOR SURGICAL MISTAKE
The reasons for surgical errors can’t be pinpointed, as there are a number of reasons why they occur. The most common is a lack of communication between the doctor, the surgical team, and you, the patient.
In an effort to avoid surgical errors you should never be embarrassed or ashamed to verify what procedure you’re having done and where exactly on the body that procedure will be performed.
Surgical errors can also occur post-operation. If the incision was not properly closed, infection to the interior and exterior of the site could happen. Poor post-op care could also cause infection, septic shock, or delayed healing.
CONSEQUENCES OF SURGICAL ERRORS
The consequences of surgical mistakes are often devastating. Some of these severe, life-altering results are:
- Brain damage
- Loss of the use of a limb
- Lingering infections

No one likes a bully. Yet, after a traumatic event in your life, that is exactly what the insurance company can seem like. Every day I fight zealously for my clients to get them the compensation they are entitled to, counsel them during a difficult period in their life, and protect my clients from those same bullies.
All attorneys can make promises, what separates our firm from the rest is the fact that we never stop working until you are completely satisfied and made whole again after a traumatic injury that was caused by someone else. Once I begin working on your case, the matter becomes personal to me. I always say, ‘I lose sleep so you don’t have to.

I rate the Pisanchyn law firm five stars if I had a way to rate them 100 stars I would they were so kind so helpful and so caring in a very scary time of my life. I don’t know what I would’ve done without Mr. Pisanchyn and his staff. No matter what I needed they were there morning, noon, or night Mr.Pisanchyn was even kind enough to give me his own personal cell phone number in case I ever needed him day or night. This is the second time I’ve used his law firm and I will use him 100 more Times. I fully recommend his law firm to anyone and everyone in need of a good defense lawyer. I’ve already recommended him at least a dozen times and everyone I told to use his law firm has been more than satisfied. Some of them even called me and said thank you for recommending him. Thank you so much mike for everything you did for me and my family.
Nine years ago I was in a nasty car accident and didn’t know where to turn, with a lot of luck I ended up calling Mike to represent me. It was the best thing I ever did. He never treated me like a client, I made a friend. The friendship extended to the entire office. He did exactly what he said he would. Then 3 years ago my husband got hurt at work and we never thought twice on who to call. By this time Mike had taken on other partners in the firm. Keith, who handled the workers comp case and Lee who took care of the SSI. I don’t know what others are talking about it taking so much time or so much hastle~~~both ended up settling much sooner than we ever expected. The entire firm works together, from the attorneys to the entire staff. I really think that is part of what makes this law firm the best ever.

John and I want to thank you for all you have done for us. We know all of you put a lot of time and work in on our case and for that we are very thankful. You have the nicest friendliest people working there. Mara has been so nice to us. We especially want to thank Doug. We spent many hours talking with him and found him to be very personable.
The Pisanchyn Law Firm is in touch with local affairs and contacted us to say, “I heard about your situation. I AM YOUR attorney.” With aggressive, honorable, and knowledgeable representation, they have also met our pain with consolation… I will never forget the day my attorney called. Trust is the new game in the legal community, the Pisanchyn Law Firm wrote the book on accountability and Justice….CALL THEM.
Thank you so much for all you’ve done to help us through this difficult time. It’s been very much appreciated.
It is heartwarming to know that there are still good and honest people around. Thank you very much!
I cannot thank Doug enough for all of his help with my case.
They helped me tremendously when I was going through Worker’s Compensation and a Settlement. There was no way I could have gone through it myself. Everyone was patient and professional with me and believe, I’m sure that was not easy. Everything was completely settled almost 13 months ago and I’m back on my feet and working once again. I absolutely recommend Pisanchyn Law Firm to anyone that needs help with a work injury or anything work related.
I would just like to thank everyone that helped settle my Workers’ Comp case, you were all so helpful. It meant a lot to me and helped me get my life back on track.
I can’t tell you how happy I am of the results from your office. I got wonderful, professional and extremely fast service for the situations I had. I will be using your office again if need be and telling everyone I know how hard it is to get results without your help.
