Before your surgery, your surgeon should inform you of the potential complications and risks that you may experience. Every surgery is potentially dangerous due to the possibility of unforeseen complications, but dangers like surgical errors are highly preventable. Some of the most common types of surgical errors include performing a procedure on the wrong body part, nerve damage, and leaving foreign objects (such as medical devices) in the body. These serious errors can cause further injuries and illness. If you were the victim of medical malpractice due to surgical error, you may be eligible for necessary financial compensation for your extensive medical expenses. An experienced personal injury attorney with Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck, P.A. may help you seek compensation for your pain and suffering caused by a negligent surgeon.
