Negligence of Surgeons, Anesthesiologists, & Hospitals
When you undergo an operation, you literally put your life in the hands of the surgical team. When surgeons and nurses make mistakes in the operating room, the results can be catastrophic. Many times the damage simply cannot be undone. Other times, the error can be mitigated, but the culprits fail to notice or try to cover their tracks.
At Sullivan & Brill, LLP, we are committed to justice for victims of surgical errors. Our medical malpractice attorneys will go all the way to trial if necessary to hold medical professionals accountable for serious injury or death. We are well versed in the area of law and we understand the precautions that professionals are supposed to take when performing surgery. If you are suffering from an injury due to a surgical error, schedule a free case evaluation with our firm and we can help you build a case strategy designed to obtain justice.
Experienced New York City Surgery Malpractice Lawyers

We pursue full compensation for medical care (including surgical intervention to repair the damage), lost income, pain and suffering, and permanent disability.
Our medical malpractice team is led by trial lawyer Joseph F. Sullivan, who brings more than 15 years of experience and numerous verdicts and settlements in medical negligence litigation.
In fact, one of his biggest recoveries ever was in a malpractice lawsuit against a surgeon:
Mr. Sullivan and co-counsel obtained a $750,000 settlement on behalf of a woman who suffered significant loss of use in her right hand in a botched surgery. She was diagnosed with tumors (neurofibromatosis) on the radial nerve in her arm. After assuring the patient he could safely remove the tumor without harming the underlying nerve, the operating physician in fact severed the radial nerve.
Most surgical errors are entirely preventable. Our attorneys are skilled at proving that doctors, nurses, or anesthesiology specialists failed to follow standard procedures or failed to operate with due caution.
