Cleveland Surgical Error Lawyer
In the process of performing any procedure, surgeons have a duty of care to ensure that the operation is performed correctly and that the expected repairs are successfully completed. In addition, surgeons carry the responsibility of ensuring that no unintended cuts, nicks or other damage is done to the arteries or other organs during the procedure. In the event that damage does occur during the surgery, it is the surgeon's responsibility to recognize it and repair it before the patient is released.

If a surgeon nicks or causes some other kind of damage to an artery or vital organ, it can lead to extremely serious health issues for the patient if the damage is not attended to in a timely manner. Our attorneys work to see that negligent surgeons are held accountable when their mistakes have a negative impact on patients. — Partner Peter J. Brodhead
Your Advocate When a Surgeon's Error Causes Avoidable Damage
At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber, we understand that surgical errors are a relatively infrequent occurrence. Most often, surgeons do their jobs effectively and patients are able to recover without any further complications. In situations where mistakes are made, however, decisive action needs to be taken to protect the patient's interests and correct any damage that may have been done. We serve as strong advocates for our clients in these cases, working tirelessly to see that fair compensation is secured and that the possibility of future victimization is minimized.
Handling All Types of Cases Involving Nicked Arteries and Vital Organs
Our attorneys have experience handling all types of these cases. During our more than 65 years of service to injury victims, we have helped clients to successfully resolve claims involving injuries and health conditions related to a broad range of damaged organs, including the following:
- Intestines and bowels
Depending on the extent of the damage done to the internal organ, the negative impact may not become immediately apparent. Nicked arteries can be left to bleed continually and internal organs can become less efficient in their performance. Serious infection, severe bleeding and the potential death of the patient are all possible when nicked arteries and organs are left unrepaired.
