Colorado Surgical Error Attorneys
When Surgical Mistakes Lead to Serious Injury
During surgery, we trust surgeons, anesthesiologists and other medical professionals to give the best care possible. We trust them to act quickly if complications arise. We trust them with our lives and the lives of our loved ones. When they break that trust and make mistakes that lead to serious injury or death, they should be held accountable.
At Cross & Bennett, L.L.C., our Colorado surgical error lawyers are compassionate advocates for clients who were injured by a medical professional's negligence during surgery. We put more than 20 years of experience to work to recover financial compensation for the victims of medical malpractice. To speak with one of our attorneys, please contact us.

Gallbladder Injuries During Surgery
Injuries to the common bile duct and gallbladder during surgery can result in a backup of bile to the liver or leakage of bile, which can cause infections or peritonitis, and, in extreme cases, liver failure. Our attorneys are well versed in surgical errors involving the gallbladder and common bile duct. We have access to a wide range of medical professionals who can review your medical records and help prove that the physician in your gallbladder surgery malpractice case acted negligently.
When a doctor makes a mistake during a spinal cord surgery, there can be serious consequences, such as paralysis or neurological injuries.
