Surgery malpractice occurs when a surgeon falls below the standard of care and skill that is expected of a surgeon in that particular specialization, under similar circumstances. Unfortunately, surgery malpractice is a much more common occurrence than it should be. Each year, hundreds of thousands of people in the United States suffer injury or even death because of the negligence of doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, pharmacists or other medical professionals. If you have suffered injury or if you have lost a loved one due to surgical malpractice, it is important to find an experienced malpractice attorney to represent you.
