Lawyers for Outpatient Surgery Malpractice – Call Us Now
Outpatient surgery is a relatively new phenomenon, and patients love it and gravitate towards it because of the minimal downtime experienced as well as its affordable cost and the convenience provided. Laparoscopic surgery features heavily in outpatient surgery centers where the patient doesn’t have to be opened up via large incisions in order to get to the root of the health problem. In addition, outpatient surgery centers are usually run by physicians themselves in an entrepreneurial manner as this allows them to keep 100 percent of the profits as well as providing them with a chance or opportunity to expand and even franchise their centers across the country. However, outpatient surgery centers, due to lacking in management checks and balances often fall victim to negligence by the very physicians that own these centers, leading to patient injury. In such cases, the injured patient is well within their rights to file a lawsuit to recover money damages as well as justice, and we’re here to help with that.
