Neurosurgical Malpractice Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

When Does Neurosurgical Malpractice Occur?

Our brains and spinal cords control almost all of the things we do, and if they’re injured, the medical and surgical issues involved are serious.

Neurosurgeons – specialists in operating on the brain, spine, and spinal cord – are expected to be extremely well trained and careful in their approach to treatment.  When they’re not, necessary patient care falls short and mistakes are made.

These mistakes can include but are not limited to the following:

  • Failure to diagnose signs and symptoms of an impending stroke or to administer timely treatment.
  • Injury to the spinal cord during back surgery
  • Inappropriate treatment of scoliosis
  • Failure to diagnose cauda equina syndrome
  • Failure to properly perform a laminectomy
  • Failure to timely treat hydrocephalus
  • Failure to properly perform a spinal fusion
  • Failure to timely or properly fix a brain aneurysm or AV malformation

Consequences of Neurosurgical Malpractice

The consequences of these errors can be devastating – severe pain, paralysis, and death are all potential results of neurosurgical negligence, in addition to financial hardship and emotional burden on patients and their families.  Finding the right lawyer, one with extensive and real experience in dealing with these issues, is the key to getting these families the help that they need and deserve.

When you have a serious medical condition, like a brain or spine ailment, you get help from a specialist.  When you need experience and expertise to bring a complex medical malpractice claim, you need Sommers Schwartz.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate you! From our first conversation on the phone, I knew you truly believed me, and I felt comfortable sharing very personal and painful information with you. This was one of the hardest things that I’ve been through, but you made…

I was very impressed with you throughout the trial.

That was the first time I had been a juror, and it was an interesting experience. I was very impressed with you throughout the trial, and got the feeling that you really enjoy your career.

Andy Dragovic is an outstanding trial attorney!

I needed representation from an attorney who was empathetic and effective. Andrija Dragovic proved to be that attorney time and time again. He was clearly dedicated to finding justice, explored my options every step of the way, and respected all my decisions regarding the case.

You are outstanding!!!

I was so impressed with your knowledge of the law and the way you were able to step back and look at all the options while explaining it to me in layman terms. I would recommend you to anyone who is or has been a victim of workplace harassment, discrimination or any other employment issue.

Our attorney was tough, very professional, and knew his stuff!

Our case was very difficult and challenging and therefore was very time-consuming. Each step of the way, Matt explained what was going on and what I could expect, and he always kept in contact through emails or phone calls. Matt is sincere, kind, and compassionate – he has become more than just our attorney. He is more like family!

Ken Watkins and his team did an excellent job!

I really didn’t think we had a case, but Ken Watkins and his team did an excellent job and got us a nice settlement without going to trial. He always did what was best for us and was sympathetic to our feelings. Everyone at Sommers Schwartz was friendly and helpful,…

I’m speechless!

I’m speechless! I never expected to receive the settlement that you guys worked so hard for! Thank you so much!

Thank you for looking out for me, and having my back.

Thank you for trying to win. Thank you for putting in as much time as you did. Thank you for being patient with me. Thank you for looking out for me, and having my back. You made a big impression on me.

Mr. Turner was a guiding light.

Going through the legal process was foreign and nerve-racking for me but I was able to garner confidence from my attorney. I am fully confident he was the key factor in the success of my outcome.
