Surgical malpractice occurs when a surgeon, nurse, or another medical professional provides substandard care during a surgical procedure. This can involve a range of errors, from performing the wrong operation to leaving a surgical tool inside a patient’s body. The impact of surgical malpractice can be severe, leading to prolonged recovery, permanent injuries, or disability, and even death. A surgical errors lawyer can help you understand the laws that pertain to surgical malpractice claims and guide you through the legal process.
