Surgery always presents a risk, no matter how big or small the procedure. Sadly, some people have suffered injuries due to a careless or negligent surgeon, operating room nurse, or other surgical personnel. Sometimes the injury may even be the consequence of hospital malpractice. If you or someone you care for has been injured due to surgical error, Hudson & Castle can help provide experienced legal representation to achieve the compensation you deserve.

At Hudson & Castle, we have more than 90 years combined experience handling personal injury claims for people in Wilmington and throughout the state of Delaware. We aggressively protect the rights of people who have suffered needless injury because of the carelessness or negligence of surgeons, operating room nurses or other surgical personnel, or as a result of hospital malpractice. We handle all types of claims involving wrongdoing during surgery, including:

  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Leaving a surgical tool or foreign object in a body cavity after surgery
  • Failing to use appropriate care, resulting in unnecessary damage to nerves, organs, or other body parts
  • Anesthesia errors, from failing to gather necessary preoperative information to administering the wrong anesthesia or an incorrect amount of an anesthetic

We also represent individuals who have sustained loss because of a defective implant, including a manufacturer’s error in design or construction.

We recognize that every case is unique, and are dedicated to providing the highest level of client service, including individualized personal attention. We employ cutting-edge technology to monitor every aspect of your case, so that we can dedicate our energy and attention to getting full and fair compensation for you.

Hudson & Castle can handle all types of injuries related to surgical errors, from brain injury caused by oxygenation problems to nerve damage, including numbness, paralysis, or even loss of limb. We protect the rights of people who have developed unnecessary infections because of unsanitary conditions, and represent surviving family members in wrongful death cases involving surgical mistakes.

Surgical error claims can be very complex, so we work closely with national experts and specialists, including doctors and nurses. Our experts will carefully investigate the facts and circumstances of your case, reviewing all medical records. As a result, we are often able to identify critical issues at early stages of litigation, helping us prepare and present extremely persuasive arguments for your recovery.
