Lafayette Surgical Errors Lawyers Serving Clients Throughout the Acadiana Area
Surgeons go through many years of education and training before they are allowed to operate on their own. Patients have a right to expect that these highly educated professionals will provide a certain standard of care. When surgeons make mistakes because of negligence or misconduct, they fail to achieve the expected standard of care. This can lead to debilitating injuries, such as nerve damage or brain injuries, and even death. People who have been hurt by this failure may be eligible to receive payment for their injuries, additional medical bills, and lost wages.
