When a Surgical Mistake Causes Harm or Disability
Orthopedic surgery malpractice is a serious issue that can cause temporary or permanent harm to someone who is often already facing the challenge of a painful or disabling injury. A doctor’s mistake can do more than add to physical pain or require additional surgeries to correct the mistake; it can lead to extended time away from work or a permanently diminished quality of life.

Hartman, P.C., can’t take away the physical and emotional pain of orthopedic malpractice victims, but we can help you hold the right people accountable and help you get the compensation you deserve. When we take your case we put our proven reputation for success behind your case.
