Boca Raton Surgical Error Lawyer
Have you been injured in a surgical procedure gone wrong? Don’t let what happened to you go unpunished. Doctors are responsible for negligent mistakes, and you can hold them to a higher standard of care so others like you won’t be injured.
Surgery is always a terrifying experience, but you trust your doctor when he or she says surgery is necessary for your health. If the doctor then makes careless surgical errors that compromise your health, shouldn’t he or she be held accountable?
Filing a medical malpractice claim against the surgeon or other at-fault party may be the only way to recover the damages this surgical error has caused you. Your damages may include additional medical expenses, pain, and emotional trauma caused by your injury.
You don’t have to let doctors get away with subpar care. You can work with a Boca Raton surgical error lawyer at the Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo to hold the surgeon liable for medical negligence and to obtain compensation for everything you’ve been through.
When Does a Surgical Error Become Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence is when a patient is injured because of a doctor’s careless mistakes. These types of cases can be difficult to prove because doctors are human, and they’re allowed to make some mistakes—just like anyone else.
It therefore becomes necessary to prove that your doctor’s mistake goes beyond what would have been a reasonable mistake, given the situation. What is reasonable to one person may not be reasonable to someone else.
It would be safest to discuss your case with a surgical error lawyer in Boca Raton to see if your injury qualifies you to file a claim against the healthcare professional who hurt you.
Below are some of the basic requirements of negligence in a Boca Raton surgical malpractice case:
- A doctor-patient relationship existed.
- The doctor had a duty to provide you with quality surgical care.
- The doctor failed in that duty of care and you were injured as a result.
- You suffered actual damages because of the surgical error.
