Surgical Errors Resulting in a Medical Malpractice Claim
Thousands of surgeries are performed each year in the United States without problems. Many of us are lucky to have access to highly professional doctors and other health care professionals when we develop health issues that require surgery.
However, when a surgical error occurs, it is almost without exception a disastrous event. There are very few circumstances that excuse a doctor or nurse who makes a surgical error. Even if the surgical error can be quickly corrected, the patient still must usually undergo a second and previously unnecessary surgery. And in other cases, the surgical error may result in permanent injury, disfigurement or even premature death.
