Wrong Site Surgery
Our Mobile, AL attorneys help you fight for justice
It's almost impossible to imagine a surgeon performing on the wrong part of the body. And yet these serious surgical errors happen far more often than many people might realize.
When a person undergoes surgery on the wrong site, the health issue that needs treatment remains unresolved. As a result, the person with an illness or injury could experience serious health problems, and their condition could get worse. Many wrong site surgery errors result in fatalities.
When wrong site surgery errors occur, knowing what to do afterwards can be confusing. Even knowing what your rights are as an injury victim or surviving family member might not be clear. That's why it's critical that you speak with a surgical error attorney right away. We want to meet with you at Braswell Murphy LLC of Mobile, Alabama.
