- Unsanitary surgical equipment
- Organ puncture or perforation

The law allows patients to collect compensation for medical malpractice if it is determined that a doctor or other healthcare provider failed to adhere to the medical standard of care during their procedure. If you or your loved one were hurt because of a surgical error, we urge you to contact The Cochrane Firm immediately. It is vital our medical malpractice lawyers begin investigating your case right away, before important evidence is lost or destroyed. If you’ve already been approached by an insurance company for the hospital or doctor who treated you, don’t agree to any settlement without talking with one of our attorneys. We understand what it takes to negotiate with insurance companies, and will make sure you are treated fairly. Our surgical error lawyers are also experienced courtroom litigators who will be ready for trial if the responsible party refuses to address your claim in good faith.
