There are many types of medical errors that can occur in the context of surgery. Some of the most common types of surgical errors include the following:
If you or someone you love has been the victim of medical malpractice in the surgical context, you may be able to recover compensation for the resulting injuries and other complications.
In order to prove medical negligence in the surgical context, you must be able to demonstrate that the surgeon violated the applicable standard of care. Medical specialists, including surgeons, are often held to a national standard of care.
In order to prove negligence on the part of a healthcare provider, you will need medical testimony from another doctor. That other doctor will need to show that the first healthcare provider acted unreasonably under the circumstances and violated the prevailing standard of medical care. In addition, the injured patient must show that he or she suffered complications or damages as a result of the surgeon’s negligence. For example, the patient may have suffered an additional injury or may have required a second medical procedure to correct the first procedure that the surgeon performed incorrectly.
If you have suffered a surgical error that you suspect may have been caused by medical malpractice, time might be of the essence in your case. The experienced personal injury attorneys at Malman Law can properly investigate what happened and can lay out all of your legal options so that you are well informed.
