Surgical Errors Harm Thousands of Patients Every Year
Handling complex medical malpractice cases throughout Kentucky
There are a number of risks associated with every surgery, but negligence in the performance of a surgery is never a recognized risk or complication. Every year, negligence in the operating room leads to thousands of infections, necessary revision surgeries and deaths. Crandall & Pera Law represents patients in Kentucky who suffered needlessly after a botched or contraindicated surgery; such surgeries can lead to exacerbated pain and suffering as well as increased medical expenses. Our compassion and understanding of the difficult times faced by our clients drive us to work tirelessly in pursuing their claims.
