Serious Injury From Surgery Errors

Every surgery carries risks, but this is not meant to include mistakes or carelessness by the surgical team. Errors by the surgeon or surgical nurses may constitute medical malpractice when they result in lasting injury or death. Yet actually holding those medical professionals to justice is no small task.

Attorney Mark Maritote brings more than 30 years of experience in Illinois medical malpractice litigation, including successful lawsuits for surgery errors. If you believe that your adverse outcome of surgery stemmed from negligence, please call 630-352-4345 or toll free 866-402-0174 for a free consultation.

Did Something Go Wrong With The Operation?

The surgical team cannot correct every medical condition or save every life. But they can be held accountable for causing more harm or allowing patients to come to harm through errors or lax care. We investigate surgery malpractice cases such as:

  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Leaving surgical objects inside the patient
  • Scalpel injuries (nicked artery, severed nerve, perforated bowel)
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Failure to monitor in post-operative recovery
  • Post-surgery internal bleeding or infection
  • Unnecessary surgery

R. Mark Maritote, P.C., has secured many verdicts and settlements against surgeons and hospitals. From our office in Bloomingdale, we handle cases in DuPage County, Cook County and throughout the Chicago suburbs.
