Pittsburgh Surgical Error Attorneys

Every surgery has inherent risks. That is why medical professionals are required to follow accepted standards of care during every surgery. If an injury or death occurs because of the failure to comply with these standards of care, doctors, nurses and hospitals can be held liable for surgical malpractice.
