Compensation for Errors Made During Surgery

At Walsh, Knippen & Cetina, Chartered, our medical malpractice attorneys have an excellent record of obtaining compensation for clients injured by errors made during surgery. For example:

  • $7.3 million for a client left with significant facial paralysis and disfigurement after an ENT surgeon’s mistakes in the removal of a benign facial tumor.
  • $2.485 million for a client who suffered a total loss of hearing in one ear after a negligently performed outpatient ear surgery.
  • $1.55 million for a 70-year-old woman who suffered a neurological stroke as a result of errors made during ankle surgery at Elmhurst Hospital.

Our lawyers represent clients who have been injured because of a broad range of errors made during surgery, including:

  • Leaving instruments or sponges behind
  • Severing arteries
  • Perforating organs
  • Cutting nerves/causing paralysis
  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Failure to stop bleeding into the pericardium during heart surgery
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Plastic surgery errors
  • Laparoscopic surgery errors
  • Spinal surgery errors
  • Cataract surgery errors
  • Colonoscopy errors
  • Failure to diagnose and treat post-operative complications

Trial Lawyers Who Get Results

If our opponents do not agree to a reasonable settlement, we will take the case to a trial, where we have had excellent results. In fact, in a three-year period, attorney Ed Walsh won three multimillion dollar medical malpractice verdicts in excess of available insurance.
