Los Angeles CRPS AttorneyCRPS Resulting from Surgical Errors – Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Information:

Acts of medical malpractice, including surgical errors, are a chief cause of CRPS in the United States. An act of medical negligence can be proven when the practicing physician actions resulting in the injury were a deviation from the practices established by the medical community at large. For example, during a knee replacement surgery, the accepted practice is to fasten the medial nerve to prevent it from being cut. If the surgeon failed to fasten the nerve and the failure to do so resulted in the cutting of the nerve and resulting CRPS then a claim for medical malpractice can be established.
