Can My Surgeon be Held Responsible for My Injuries?

By: Stuart Scott

When a patient has surgery, there is already a common sense of fear from the unknown of a serious medical procedure. But what happens if during your surgery you are harmed even further?

As a healthcare provider, your surgeon is bound to give you a standard of medical care that not only treats your condition but keeps you safe from further harm. If they fail to do so, you may want to hold them responsible for their actions.

This can be done by bringing a lawsuit against the surgeon for what you injuries you have suffered. A medical malpractice case allows you to seek compensation for the harm that they caused as this is your only recourse within the legal system. If the doctor has been shown guilty of causing you harm, you can be monetarily compensated for the cost of your injuries, lost wages and other damages their negligence may have caused.

To sue a doctor or surgeon for your injuries, we will need to prove to a judge or jury that they were at fault. We do this by reviewing your medical records and allowing other experts to confirm that your treating doctor caused you significant and/or permanent harm. And from that harm, you suffered from both economic and non-economic damages that the doctor should be responsible for paying instead of you.
