Common Types of Postoperative Complications
Unfortunately, there are a wide array of postoperative complications that can arise. In many cases, these complications can have significant, if not deadly impacts on injured patients. We at Davis & Davis have extensive experience with these issues, including:

- Severe bleeding

To win a claim against a medical professional, you must demonstrate that you were harmed because the surgeon fell beneath the accepted medical standard of care. Essentially, this means that the medical professional prescribed a line of treatment that an otherwise reasonable physician would not have, causing you to incur significant damages as a result.
