If your surgery went terribly wrong or you lost a loved one due to a medical mistake, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. The Brooklyn surgery malpractice lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates can help you pursue financial compensation for each and every type of damage you sustained.
Trusting the skills of a surgeon is necessary for any type of medical procedure. Malpractice committed by your own doctor is especially galling. If you were a victim of medical error, it is important that you contact Dansker & Aspromonte Associates as soon as possible.
Brooklyn Surgical Mistakes and Determining Liability for Your Harm
When you or a loved one has surgery, there is a team of medical professionals that make the procedure possible. Anesthesiologists, nurses, doctors, and others each have a role to play. Your case may involve one or more liable parties.
Research by Johns Hopkins patient safety experts found that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States. These researchers estimate that approximately 250,000 deaths occur in the United States each year due to some type of medical error.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services cites medical mistakes—including surgical errors—as “never events.” The following are types of never events that should not occur under any circumstances:
- Operation on the wrong patient
- Operation on the wrong side
- Operation on the wrong site
- Completion of the wrong procedure
If your surgery did not go as planned, resulting in unnecessary pain and suffering, a long recovery, or permanent disability, a Brooklyn surgeries lawyer can help you pursue justice and compensation.
At Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, we will complete a full and careful investigation of the facts and circumstances in your unique case. We will retain independent medical experts who will review the actions of the doctors and staff and provide us with a non-biased opinion of their care. Once we have reviewed your case, we will discuss our findings in a clear and understandable manner. If you retain us to fight for you, you will not be required to pay us any money upfront for our investigation. We only earn a fee if you obtain compensation.

What You Need to Know About Surgical Mistakes and Wrongful Death
If you lost a loved one due to a surgical mistake, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. Learning that your loved one did not survive the surgery or that they died due to complications caused by a medical mistake is heartbreaking.
You may want to take legal action against those responsible, but are unsure of where to start. Overwhelming emotions can impair your ability to calmly and effectively pursue compensation on your own.
Filing a wrongful death claim and lawsuit is possible with the help of an experienced and skilled personal injury lawyer. A member of our team can help you pursue your rights to compensation for any of your losses.
No one deserves to die during or after surgery because of a preventable surgical mistake. If you lost someone dear to you due to medical malpractice, let us help you during this most difficult time.
Possible Types of Compensation You May Be Able to Recover
A surgical mistake can cause you to suffer unnecessary pain, a mountain of medical bills, require additional medical care or surgery, and cause you to lose income. The loss of a loved one can result in unanticipated funeral expenses and deprive a family of financial resources.
At Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, we work hard to secure the best outcome possible for our clients. While the final result of your case is unique to the details of your surgery or that of your loved one, the following are types of possible compensation that we may be able to recover for you:
- Pain and suffering for all medical injuries caused by the error
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Mental anguish
- Medical costs
- Loss of income
- Future pain and suffering
- Potential future earnings if you are unable to return to the job you had before the surgical mistake
In the event of a wrongful death case, you may be able to recover compensation for damages:
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of guidance
- Loss of services around the home
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of income
These are only a few examples of the types of damages that you may recover. The true cost of a surgical mistake and its effect on your life is perhaps unmeasurable. Depending upon the severity of the mistake, you may never enjoy your favorite activities or return to your career.
Pursuing your rights in a surgical malpractice claim can also serve as a form of community justice since your claim may help prevent injury to others.
