Paralysis from Surgical Errors
The prospect of surgery is frightening for many people. Unfortunately, this concern is not unfounded—nearly half of all medical malpractice cases are against surgeons. When surgeons make mistakes during operations, patients could suffer a number of devastating consequences, including partial or even complete paralysis.
Paralysis can not only prevent you from continuing your job or hobbies, but it can also cost you millions of dollars in medical bills over your lifetime. If you have become paralyzed due to a surgical team’s errors, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help you cover these costs.
