West Virginia medical malpractice attorneys
Any surgery has the potential to be hazardous for a patient, and it is a tragedy that many injuries that come from surgical procedures are because of surgical errors. If the surgeon or surgical staff acts negligently or makes a reckless mistake during a surgery, the patient can suffer from ruptured blood vessels, arteries, or other deadly injuries. The medical malpractice attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC fight for the rights of these patients.
This type of medical malpractice often goes misreported by hospitals in order to conceal the actual amount of surgical errors that take place. One major way that hospitals do this is by reporting a surgeon error as a mere "complication" or side effect of the surgical procedure itself. But there is a major difference between mistakes and complication, and that difference can directly affect a patient's right to seek financial compensation.
