Nobody undergoes the option of surgery lightly and patients must often confirm their own risks and benefits of treatment. In addition to inherent risks, patients should not have to face the risk of poorly trained or inattentive doctors who can add an unnecessary and preventable element of danger to the surgical process. Surgical errors, including the wrong type of surgery, anesthesia overdose, and scalpel and surgical instrument errors can result in serious injuries if a medical professional is careless, impatient, or otherwise ill-prepared.
Medical professionals have a duty to provide a reasonable standard of care. If a surgeon, doctor, or nurse’s actions resulted in substandard healthcare in a surgical injury, you may be able to act. Charles Thronson and the Personal Injury practice group at Parsons Behle & Latimer will review your case, assess the damages, and work to obtain fair economic compensation for your injuries.
