Every surgical procedure comes with risks. The optimal outcome is not always achieved. However, when a surgery results in injuries or complications, the patient has the right to ask questions. Was the negative outcome the result of a medical professional's error? To answer that question, you will need the help of an experienced lawyer.

We know how complex these cases can be, which is why we frequently bring in top experts to help us analyze the facts. You can be confident that we will find out what went wrong and hold a negligent medical professional accountable for the harm caused.
Types Of Surgical Errors
Surgical errors come in many forms and may be caused not only by surgeons, but also nurses, anesthesiologists and anyone else in the operating room. Perhaps surgery was conducted on the wrong part of the body or an instrument was left in the body after surgery. Perhaps a blood vessel or an internal organ was injured during the surgery. Whatever the case may be, our Memphis surgical error attorneys can help.
In many cases, the issue arises as a result of improper post-surgical care. For example, infection is a possibility. However, if it occurs, it should be caught and treated during post-surgical care. If it is not, the doctor may be held accountable.
