There are risks with any surgery, no matter how minor or routine. But signing a waiver does not shield doctors and hospitals from negligence or "never events" that leave a patient permanently impaired or dead. When the surgical team deviated from protocol or the outcome was preventable, surgery errors may constitute medical malpractice.
The Miami law firm of Kurzban Kurzban Weinger Tetzeli and Pratt P.A. has successfully sued surgeons, hospitals and outpatient surgery centers for malpractice. Our trial lawyers have secured verdicts and settlements not only in South Florida, but statewide and nationwide.

Malpractice In The Operating Room And Recovery
We literally put our lives in the hands of surgeons and scrub nurses. They have an obligation to adhere strictly to hospital rules and standard surgical procedures to "do no harm" and to ensure that surgery goes as smoothly as possible.
We aggressively pursue justice for errors occurring in surgical prep, during the operation or in post-operative care such as:
- Wrong procedure or operating on the wrong body part
- Scalpel injuries (nicked arteries, organs or nerves)
- Objects left inside the surgical cavity (clamps, sponges, etc.)
- Infection from nonsterile procedures
- Badly botched cosmetic surgery
- Anesthesia errors
- Failure to monitor during post-op recovery
- Premature discharge from the hospital
Our medical malpractice team prepares for trial, often consulting with top medical experts at prestigious institutions such as Johns Hopkins and Harvard Medical School. This substantial investment is recouped only if we prevail in winning damages. We seek compensation for medical intervention and future medical care, permanent disability or disfigurement, lost wages or diminished earning capacity, and our client's pain and suffering.
