When Hospitals And Surgeons Make Mistakes, We Are Here To Help
Although surgeons, hospitals, doctors, anesthesiologists, nurses and other medical professionals often have years of experience, mistakes still happen ― mistakes that can have deadly consequences. In fact, professionals are held to a high standard of care precisely because of the harm that can occur when they do make mistakes.
While most of these professionals do an exemplary job providing care to our community, when exhaustion or carelessness enters the picture, there is a real danger to patients. If you or a loved one has been injured due to what you believe was a surgical mistake, hospital error or any other form of medical negligence, it is crucial to reach out to expert counsel to understand your rights.
