Weight Loss Surgery Malpractice Lawyers in New York
Injured Due to Medical Negligence? We Can Help.
As a New York weight loss surgery malpractice attorney who has concentrated on helping people injured by weight loss surgery errors for over 20 years, Attorney Paul Simonson is well aware of the reasons why people turn to bariatric surgical procedures to help them lose weight. The combination of dieting and engaging in rigorous exercise, often prescribed by physicians and recommended by well-meaning health and wellness advocates, sometimes just doesn’t work.
Research shows that the human body actively works to regain lost weight by decreasing your metabolic rate and increasing your hunger, making it extremely difficult to maintain a lower weight once you’ve been significantly overweight. Bariatric surgery offers you an effective alternative, a solution that seems like a miracle cure after years of struggle. That’s why medical problems related to errors made during your weight loss surgery are so devastating.
If you are the victim of a preventable surgical mistake related to weight loss surgery, Simonson Goodman Platzer PC can help you seek fair compensation. Our attorneys have decades of combined experience and a proven record of success; they have been successful in 98% of the cases they have handled and have secured more than $200 million for their clients.
When to Contact a Weight Loss Surgery Malpractice Attorney

Bariatric surgery is complex, and problems can occur during the procedure and during follow-up care. These problems can range from infections to blood clots in the lungs to nerve damage, neurological damage, and life-threatening complications, such as peritonitis and sepsis. Knowledgeable, experienced bariatric surgery attorneys understand the problems that can occur during and after surgery, as well as the errors and neglect that could have caused them.
