Are You the Victim of a Surgical Error?

There are always some risks that the doctor or surgeon should have advised the patient of prior to performing a surgery. Whether a minor outpatient surgery or major surgery such as open-heart surgery or brain surgery, the risks should be explained. Even when risks are explained to a patient, that does not mean negligent action by the doctor, nurse or staff at the performing hospital should be ignored. When a surgery is performed before the accepted standards of care for that specific operation, a medical malpractice claim can be pursued.
