Surgical Malpractice Lawyers

Cranston & Edwards PLLC – Morgantown, WV Trial Attorneys

Undergoing surgery can be a frightening time, but we trust that the surgeons, anesthesiologists, and medical personnel we entrust with our health and lives will approach the surgical procedure with the utmost care, respect, and professional competency we deserve. Unfortunately, nearly half a million patients die each year as a direct result of preventable surgical malpractice, making surgical errors the third leading cause of death in the United States (just behind cancers and heart disease). In addition to these tragic fatalities, many others suffer serious and catastrophic injuries that cause a lifetime of hardship and pain. At Cranston & Edwards PLLC, we believe this is absolutely unacceptable.

Money for Disabilities, 24/7 Medical Care, and Wrongful Death

The results of serious surgical mistakes may result in patients suffering significant disabilities, requiring 24/7 medical care and treatments, suffering permanent damage to health, and preventing the patient from working, performing routine tasks, and enjoying life. Patients may suffer a wrongful death related to surgical malpractice on the operating table, in the hospital, or at a later time.
Surgical malpractice damages are not only physically costly; they are psychologically and financially expensive, as well. Losses can easily soar into the millions of dollars.
