New Jersey Surgical Error Attorneys
Representing Victims of Surgical Errors in Passaic County and throughout New Jersey
By its very nature, surgery is a potentially dangerous procedure with many inherent risks. The invasive manner in which surgery is performed makes it all the more essential for medical professionals to adhere to the established standard of care when preparing for, performing, and monitoring patients who undergo surgical procedures. Surgeons, their staff members, and the medical facilities that employ them have an obligation to take every necessary step in an effort to ensure the well-being of the patient. When errors are made during surgery or postoperative care, this negligence can result in a broad range of serious health complications and, in some instances, the death of the patient. If you or a loved one has suffered health complications due to a surgery-related error, you may have grounds to pursue compensation through a medical malpractice claim.
