If Your Surgery Went Wrong, Get The Answers You Deserve

Surgeons have the responsibility to protect those who are on their operating tables. When careless mistakes are made during surgery, they can result in catastrophic and fatal injuries for patients. By filing a medical malpractice claim after a surgical error, you may hold the surgeon or other medical professionals accountable for not adhering to the accepted standards of treatment and care.

The attorneys at the law firm of John J. Hopkins & Associates are dedicated to providing compassionate service and experienced representation. We invite you to give us a call today to discuss your specific situation. Based in Alton, we serve clients throughout the St. Louis Metro East area.

If you or someone you love were injured because of a surgical error, you have the right to know what went wrong, to be compensated for it and to find the closure you need to move forward.

What Happened To Cause Your Injury?

At John J. Hopkins & Associates, our lawyers have represented clients who have suffered injuries as the result of negligence and surgical errors, such as:

  • Infections
  • Surgery on the wrong body part or organ
  • Surgical equipment that is left in the body
  • Defective medical implants
  • Postoperative negligence
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Radiology and X-ray errors

Surgical errors are not always obvious after they happen. Certainly, some mistakes happen and are not necessarily the result of malpractice. That is why it is important to talk with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney who can properly evaluate a claim and advise you as to whether it is in your best interest to pursue compensation from surgeons or other medical professionals.
