Surgical Injuries

Surgical Injuries There is no scarier or more uncertain time in a person's life than when he or she has to have an operation. Surgical patients put their health, and even their lives, in the hands of a doctor they trust. Any patient will tell you that there is no such thing as a "routine" surgery. Some surgeries are "open" surgeries and some are done by using a fiberoptic scope with a videocamera at the end.

Sometimes patients have an unfortunate outcome through no fault of the surgeon. However, occasionally a preventable surgical error occurs, resulting in life-changing consequences to the patient. A nerve is cut. The bowel is perforated. A suture is misplaced. A surgical sponge or an instrument is left in the patient. The list goes on. One preventable surgical mishap can result in catastrophic loss.

We take each surgery medical malpractice case very seriously. We review each case carefully with our attorney-physician and with other health care providers. We read articles from surgery journals. We do all of this to insure that our clients receive fair compensation for the losses they have suffered due to a preventable surgical error.

My 15-year-old son suffered a life-altering closed head injury that left him disabled for life when he was injured in a truck accident. I went to Mike Miller for help. Mike and the law firm were the greatest people I have ever been around. Everything they did was excellent, above and beyond the call of duty. They were able to recover enough to let me leave my job and devote full time care for my son. To this day, they are more than happy to talk with me and take care of anything that comes up. J.M.
Words cannot express how tremendously grateful my husband and I are to Nate and his team during the most difficult times in our lives. He walked us through every step with the up most respect, never hesitating to answer any and all questions, or simply giving us a word of encouragement. It was a relief to know that he was always on our side, fighting for our case and believing that it was worth fighting for. C.L.
A patient with a stroke was not transferred to a hospital capable of treating her. The client said, "We worked with Brad Kallmyer who was phenomenal. He listened well and was very thorough and professional. I give all the credit to Brad. The staff was very kind, very understanding. They made my mom feel important. Brad's integrity and the firm came through for us. They were great." C.M.
Scott did a truly amazing job for us. It was not just about the legal work; he was there for us every step of the way. From rehab, through settlement and even making sure appropriate financial arrangements were in place for the future. He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman's comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband. Now, he will be taken care of for the rest of his life. T.R.
