Surgical Malpractice

Chicago Surgery Malpractice Attorneys

Undergoing surgery can be one of the most stressful experiences in life. Whether the procedure is planned or unplanned, your life is put in the hands of the surgeon. That is a powerful showing of trust on your part. When something goes wrong, you deserve to know why and you deserve compensation for the harm caused by the surgical error.

At James D. Montgomery & Associates, Ltd.,, our Chicago surgery malpractice lawyers will help you find answers. We understand that there really is no such thing as "routine" surgery. Every operation is serious. Surgeons must adhere to high standards in preparing a person for surgery, performing the surgery and seeing that the person is responding after the procedure. Any violation of their duties can result in serious injury and even death. When that happens, the surgeon must be held accountable.
