When the test results came back, the doctor told his patient she had an aggressive form of breast cancer. He said a radical mastectomy would give her the best chance for long-term survival. They scheduled surgery right away.
After her breast was removed the woman learned she never had cancer at all. The surgeon had misread the pathology report. The woman suffered physical and emotional trauma and an unnecessary and disfiguring surgery because the surgeon made a terrible mistake.
At The Boccardo Law Firm, we hold negligent surgeons financially accountable for the devastating injuries they inflict on their patients. We have a long and successful history of winning impressive verdicts and settlements for clients who have suffered serious injuries due to surgical error.
When patients consent to surgical procedures, they trust that the doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals will follow established medical standards in order to minimize the risk. When surgical errors occur, patients can suffer grave consequences, such as permanent physical and mental impairment, and even wrongful death.
