Champaign Surgical Error Lawyers
Surgical procedures can be used to address many serious medical conditions, but errors on the part of a surgeon can easily turn deadly. Surgeons are held to very high standards of conduct and must closely adhere to established safety protocols. If surgeons behave recklessly or ignore these standards, patients may suffer more than if the operation had never been performed at all.
For example, negligent surgeons have been known to leave objects inside a patient’s body. Failure to double-check the patient’s condition can result in a patient receiving the wrong surgery or the right surgery on the wrong site. And it is all too common for surgeons to amputate the wrong limb, resulting in the loss of both limbs instead of just one. If you or someone you love has been harmed by a negligent surgeon, contact the Champaign surgical error lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C. at (217) 328-2828 to discuss the facts of your case.
