Recent advancements in medical and surgical technology have enabled physicians and surgeons to extend longevity, eliminate risk factors, and save lives that previously would have been lost. Despite the increased survival rates, no one wants to have surgery. It’s scary, no matter how minor the procedure may be or how many times it has been performed successfully. When we must go under the knife, we trust the surgeon and his/her medical team to give us their best. When that doesn’t happen, the consequences can be devastating.
Medical malpractice continues to negatively impact Norfolk patients, and a quarter of those medical malpractice cases begin in the surgery room. Safe surgical procedures require complete concentration on the part of the surgeon from the moment you are put under until you wake up in recovery. Any lapse in judgment or concentration can lead to serious injury and even death. If you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice, you deserve to be compensated for their negligence, but proving medical malpractice can be difficult on your own. You need an experienced medical malpractice attorney to investigate your case and hold the hospital accountable.
