What is Expected of Surgeons?

Surgical errors are depressingly common in American medicine. Every year, thousands of Americans lose their lives as a result of avoidable surgical errors.

Surgery is a difficult, complicated endeavor. Sometimes, tragic results occur despite the best efforts of a skilled surgeon. No one argues that every tragic result qualifies as medical malpractice.

However, surgeons are still expected to adhere to certain standards of care that are broadly accepted within the medical community. The complexity of major surgery does not justify negligence and avoidable mistakes.

At Harvey L. Walner and Associates, our Chicago medical malpractice lawyers have decades of experience with surgical error litigation. We understand when a surgical tragedy qualifies as medical malpractice and when it does not.

And if it does, our medical malpractice lawyers understand the jargon of surgery. We know how to interpret medical charts and data, and we certainly know the law applies to the relevant facts. You can count on our skills and experience.

If you live in the Chicago, Illinois area and you need an experienced medical malpractice lawyer, please contact Harvey L Walner and Associates, Ltd. today for a free consultation.
