All surgical procedures come with some accepted risks. Even those that occur in a doctor’s office carry the risk of complications that may pose serious hazards to the patient. However, when these risks are unnecessary or when negligence increases their severity, you may be entitled to seek compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit.
If you or someone you love has been injured through surgical error, please contact the Duncan Firm online or by calling 877-638-6226 today to schedule a free and informative consultation with one of our Little Rock medical malpractice attorneys.
What Is Surgical Error?
Surgical error occurs when a healthcare provider acts negligently and harm is the result. Examples of surgical error include:
- Wrong site surgery
- Instruments being left in a patient
- Wrong or unnecessary procedure
- Wrong patient
- Anesthesia errors
- Over or under medication
If you have suffered injury due to these or any other form of medical malpractice, our team of attorneys can help. We will carefully review your medical records for all signs of negligence and take your case as far as necessary to see that you get the full compensation you are due.
