When Surgical Errors Harm Patients, We Take Action

Surgical errors are a patient’s worst nightmare. During a surgery, you are not awake or aware, and things are being done to you that you may not understand or have agreed to.

If an error occurred during your recent surgery and you believe it was caused by someone’s negligence, Heck & Stiffler, can help. The experienced lawyers in our Mansfield offices provide free case evaluations on medical malpractice cases, and we handle such cases on a contingency fee basis — you pay no attorneys’ fees at all for your case unless we win compensation for you.

Types Of Surgical Errors

There are many kinds of surgical errors such as:

  • Contamination
  • Wrong site surgery
  • Improper administration of anesthetics or blood products
  • Failure to cool instruments or follow protocols
  • Instruments left behind in body such as sponges or surgical tools

In some cases, the error may cause little or no damage to the patient, but in other instances, the consequences can be life-altering. We are prepared to fight for the compensation you deserve when you endure injuries because of a surgeon’s errors.

Strong Advocates Who Know The Law And The Insurance Industry

Attorney Jeff Heck has over 35 years of trial experience in Ohio, and has previously represented both plaintiffs (malpractice victims) and defendants (doctors and insurance carriers) in medical malpractice and personal injury cases. His ability to understand both sides of these claims enables him and his team to develop sophisticated and effective legal strategies for our current clients — those who have been injured by these mistakes.

Compassionate With Clients, Fearless With Opponents

Because we know that a surgical error can turn your life upside down, Heck & Stiffler, will do everything in our power to make the claims and case process as easy as possible for you.
