Experienced Florida Surgical and Post-Surgical Errors Lawyers
Surgery is often fraught with risk. Once people are through surgery there is a presumption the risk is over. Surgical and post surgical errors produce the same susceptibility to negative medical outcomes as surgery. However, just as with other types of medical negligence, doctors, nurses, and anesthesiologists rarely admit to surgical or post surgical errors. At the mcleod firm, in St. Augustine, Florida, we are committed to helping people prove injuries and damages that result from negligent care during and after surgery.
Knowledgeable Lawyers Focused on Surgical and Post Surgical Errors
Post-surgical injuries often result from inadequate response times by doctors and nurses as well as a lack of training by post-surgical medical care professionals. The underlying cause of these errors is understaffing, absence of doctors after surgery and too few nurses providing critical post-surgical care. The resulting medical negligence can produce consequences far worse than the original surgery was intending to correct.
