Surgeries are procedures that are done to help improve a person’s health. Surgeries can be scary and stressful because everyone’s body is different and can react in different ways. Sometimes, mistakes happen during surgery that can harm you or even put your life in danger. These injuries can take a long time to recover from and can be a tough experience for you and your loved ones.
When doctors make mistakes that harm their patients, it’s called medical malpractice. In these cases, patients have the right to be compensated for the damages they suffered. That’s why it’s important to seek legal advice if you or a loved one has experienced medical malpractice.

At Ganim Legal P.C., we have more than 30 years of experience helping people injured by medical staff. We are here to protect your interests and fight for your rights if you have been a victim of medical malpractice.

What Defines Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence happens when doctors and other medical professionals don’t do their jobs properly. They fail to meet the responsibilities that come with their roles, and this is called negligence.

In a lot of cases, medical negligence can turn into medical malpractice. This occurs when the medical professionals not only fail in their duty of care, but their actions directly cause harm or death to the patient.

Here are some examples of medical negligence:


Failure to order or perform necessary medical tests

Failure to monitor a patient

Mistakes involving anesthesia

Incorrect prescription of medicine

Wrong choice of treatment

Misuse of medical devices

Leaving surgical instruments inside the patient’s body by mistake

If you or someone you know has experienced any of these difficulties, seek legal assistance immediately, as it is likely that you have been a victim of medical malpractice.
