Michigan Surgery Malpractice Attorneys
Millions of surgeries take place in the United States each year, without incident. A significant number of patient adverse events are surgical. In fact, it has been reported that at least 4,000 preventable surgical errors happen in the United States each year. When a surgeon is negligent, it can cause severe injury or the death of the patient. Their time in the hospital may double, or triple, resulting in lost wages, the need for additional rehabilitation and astronomical medical costs.
All surgeries have inherent risks. Sometimes, bad things happen during surgery even if the surgeon is being careful. But many surgical errors are preventable and may be a basis of a medical malpractice case.
