Toledo Surgical Error Attorneys

If the surgeon’s office is not returning your calls, or the hospital is not giving you the information you’ve asked for, or what they are saying just doesn’t make sense — you may want to talk to a lawyer. In fact, we’d say you ought to. Our ability to convey complex medical information using sophisticated exhibits and expert testimony in a clear and convincing fashion is an invaluable skill. Contact us for the help you’ve been looking for.

At Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, we urge all prospective medical malpractice clients to keep in mind that surgical operations can be very complex and always carry a certain amount of risk. Not all bad outcomes are the result of a surgical error. This is not something we say to discourage people from contacting us. On the contrary, even if nothing could have been done differently by the surgical staff — talking to an experienced attorney will at least provide a better understanding of what happened and will likely offer some degree of closure.

As a firm, we represent families and individuals in the Toledo area and throughout Ohio and handle surgical error cases involving:

  • Failure to detect leaks
  • Failure to provide adequate post-operative care and monitoring
  • Anesthesiologist errors
  • Gastric bypass surgery errors
  • Heart surgery errors
  • Lasik eye surgery errors

If our experience leads us to believe that there is a valid claim and you decide to hire us, we will spare no effort or resource to hold the responsible parties accountable for their mistakes and the harm they’ve done to you and your family. As always, your level of involvement in this process will be entirely up to you. However, we will keep you fully informed at all times so that you can make sound legal decisions about the case whenever they need to be made.
