Surgical Center Malpractice Attorney Chicago

By Dean Caras.

At Caras Law Group, we understand the importance of receiving proper medical attention. Receiving medical care and treatments at a surgery center as opposed to a hospital can sometimes offer itself as a much more attractive option, typically because of the reduced expenses.

However, there are also more risks involved. Operations conducted at surgery centers are performed on an outpatient basis, meaning that the patient is released on the same day. Patients are sometimes discharged before it is medically safe, or without receiving proper instructions about which symptoms to watch for after leaving the center. This can lead to severe medical complications or even death.

Attorney Dean Caras and his associates have years of experience handling various surgical center malpractice cases which resulted in long-term injuries and even death.
