Any surgery, regardless of how big or small, can be potentially dangerous to a patient.
Most of the time an elective surgery or in-and-out surgical procedure has a low incidence of complications - unless there is surgical negligence that takes place. Negligence during a surgery is oftentimes hard to prove.
When negligence occurs as a result of inferior post-operative care or a failure to diagnose a problem, a good San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney can investigate for you. A patient who dies from complications after the surgery is another story. A review of the medical records will take place to determine if negligence did take place.
If you or a loved one had surgery and complications took place soon after, you may be the victim of medical malpractice. Contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will review your medical records to determine if you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and expenses.
