Surgical Malpractice is the failure of a surgeon to provide adequate treatment to patients resulting in a personal injury or substantial loss of income.

Surgical Malpractice is a surgeons failure to exercise the degree of care and skill that a surgeon of the same medical specialty would use under similar circumstances. When medical "standards" are not followed and adequate treatment to patients is not provided, malpractice cases arise. For these cases a surgery malpractice lawyer is essential as he/she is familiar with the governing laws and implications. A surgery malpractice lawyer will work with the health care system to find out what your rights and legal options are.

There are basically three catagories of surgery:

  • Emergency
  • Urgent
  • Elective

Emergency surgery is performed as soon as possible; minutes can make a difference. Urgent surgery,is best performed within hours. Elective surgery can be delayed for some period of time, until everything has been done to optimize a person's chances of doing well during and after the surgical procedure.
