Cleveland Medical Malpractice Attorney
Experienced Advocates For Victims Of Surgical Errors
When you were put under for surgery, you trusted the surgeon, anesthesiologist and other medical professionals with your life. You expected them to perform professionally and to avoid making mistakes. You trusted that they got enough sleep the night before and that they did not pass your surgery off to a less experienced doctor or resident.

Surgical Errors Caused By Failure To Supervise
Do you know who performed your surgery? Who monitored your anesthesia? Medical residents often perform surgeries under surgeons’ supervision. The anesthesiologist whom you met before the surgery probably had multiple surgeries going on at once and entrusted your life to a nurse practitioner.
If the surgeon or anesthesiologist does not properly supervise the residents or nurses, mistakes can happen that have life-altering effects on patients. Our Cleveland medical malpractice attorneys know how to find who is at fault in medical malpractice cases — for example, by examining medical records and questioning the people involved with your surgery.
