How Does The Law Define Medical Malpractice In The Case Of A Surgical Error?
Medical malpractice is simply a medical error that differs from any accepted medical standards and results in injury or death. While there is a wide array of possible surgical errors you could experience, medical malpractice is the correct term for your particular ordeal.
Whether you have received the wrong medical procedure, or if you are experiencing post-surgical injuries based on the result of improper medical procedures, then your case may meet the requirements of a medical malpractice claim.
What Do I Need To Prove That I Was A Victim Of A Surgical Error?
If you believe that you are a victim of a surgical error and would like to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, then you would need information that proves your claim.
