Patients have surgery for many reasons. Some surgeries are necessary for a serious illness or injury, an emergency due to an accident, a sudden medical event or a minor procedure. But in all these circumstances, Gerogia surgery patients have a right to expect that they will be informed of the risks involved and that the surgical procedure will be carried out by the surgical team with the skill and care that is necessary to prevent injury or illness.
There are some inherent risks in surgical procedures. That is why it is so important that qualified medical personnel in sterile conditions operate on patients. Patients who go through surgery, regardless of why the surgery was needed, do not anticipate they will end up the victim of a surgical error.
A Georgia surgical team must perform surgery with the skill and care required in any given procedure. When that does not happen and a patient is injured, the law permits the victim to be compensated for his or her injuries and to recover monetary damages for pain and suffering. Charles Scholle has nearly two decades of significant experience and a history of successes in representing victims who have been harmed or injured due to someone else’s negligence or error.Types of Surgical Errors
