What Constitutes Malpractice?
If you’re uncertain whether your unique circumstances constitute malpractice, contact our personal injury attorney. Malpractice includes any medical procedure where the patient is injured by a medical professional. Malpractice cases include a wide variety of personal injuries, including surgery errors.
Identifying Surgical Errors
Those who’ve been injured during an operation or recovery from an operation may be entitled to compensation. For example, a surgeon may injure a part of the body during a surgery by cutting an organ, or they may perform the surgery on the wrong organ. Caretakers and nurses may also cause personal injury post-op. If a nurse doesn’t properly dress a wound, for instance, if that wound were to become infected, that would be an instance of malpractice.
What Can Be Covered by Compensation?
Compensation can be gained to mitigate any loss of income, pain and suffering experienced, emotional distress, and any additional medical bills associated with treatment of a surgical error.
