Perforated Bowel Injury Attorney

When doctors and surgeons breach their duty of care to their patients, serious injuries such as bowel perforations can occur. Bowel perforations are surgical errors that can lead to very serious complications, more surgeries and even death.

While perforating a bowel during an operation is not automatically malpractice, failing to notice it is. Our attorneys at Steinberg, Goodman & Kalish are dedicated to protecting your rights when you or a loved one is injured during a surgical operation. Contact our Chicago law office to learn more about your options.
