Every year, a shocking number of surgical errors take place. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we understand the plethora of hardships that victims of these mistakes frequently experience and do everything we can to help our clients recover. In San Bernardino, and across California, those who are the victim of a surgical error should immediately assess their situation and consider every option. Sometimes, victims are able to improve their lives after a surgical error by filing a lawsuit. Not only do successful suits help victims receive compensation for what they have been through, but for the problems they will continue to face in the future as well.
If your life has been turned upside down because of a surgical error, you may be fighting an uphill battle. Perhaps you are struggling with severe physical pain, or have to miss out on work and have lost wages. Other problems people in this position often deal with include emotional pain, injuries that never should have occurred and an inability to pay for medical costs. Also, it is important to remember that far too many people have lost their lives as a result of surgical errors.
There are many reasons why surgical errors happen, from incompetence and inefficiency to fatigue and intoxicated surgeons. Regardless of the reasons why these errors keep happening, the lives of far too many victims are thrown into turmoil and these surgeons should be held responsible for their actions.
