We have all heard the stories of surgeons making unforgivable mistakes like leaving an instrument or swab behind in a patient's body. We have heard about operations performed on the wrong body part or on the wrong patient. Unfortunately, these situations do occur. Victims of surgical negligence will need a skilled
medical malpractice attorney to represent their interests and assist them in seeking financial compensation for the injuries they have suffered.
When undergoing surgery, a patient places his trust and often his life into the hands of the surgeon, anesthesiologist and other medical professionals on the case. Any failure to provide an acceptable level of care at any point in the process (pre-operation, during surgery, and post-operation) can result in serious injuries and even death.
