Fighting To Get You Compensation For Surgical Errors
Even the most minor surgical procedure will involve some degree of risk. However, every surgeon has a duty to take all available precautions to ensure that negligent actions do not add to the degree of risk. When a surgical team fails to follow procedure or the accepted standard of care, the results can be catastrophic. At the Portland law firm of Sokol & Associates, P.C., our attorneys fight to get injured victims and their family members compensation for surgical malpractice.

We Handle All Types Of Surgery-Related Injury Claims
At Sokol & Associates, P.C., our attorneys have extensive experience handling all types of claims involving surgeon negligence, including:
- Wrong-site surgery or surgery on the wrong part of the body
- Failure to properly sterilize equipment or the surgical site
- Surgical equipment left inside the body
- Improper surgical techniques
- Nicking an organ, nerve or artery during surgery
- Performing unnecessary surgery or operations without consent
- Anesthesiology errors
- Orthopedic surgical errors
There can be any number of reasons why surgical errors occur. The surgeon may be overtired or overworked, the surgical team may not follow proper precautions or the surgeon may not be fully experienced in the particular type of surgery. Whatever the reason, negligence is inexcusable; if you have suffered an injury, you should demand compensation.
We Represent Family Members When Errors Prove To Be Fatal
Unfortunately, some mistakes that occur during surgery prove to be fatal. When this happens, our lawyers can file a wrongful death claim on behalf of surviving family members. We understand that no amount of compensation can fill the void left by the loss of a loved one. However, we will use all our resources to show that these irresponsible actions will not be tolerated by holding all responsible parties accountable.
