Legal Help For People Harmed By Surgical Errors
Surgery is risky. Even a routine procedure can result in harm to a small percentage of people. While inherent risks are something that every patient should be informed of before agreeing to a surgical procedure, medical professionals need to follow the accepted standard of care to ensure that they do not needlessly increase the risk for potential harm. Failing to follow the accepted standards of care is negligent and can result in catastrophic injuries.
