If a surgeon caused internal bleeding which had to be repaired later, am I responsible for the extra costs?
Question Details: I had some gall stones removed. During the endoscopy, the surgeon accidentally cut the inside of my stomach. I later discovered I had internal bleeding which was confirmed by another doctor. The following day, I had another endoscopy performed to close the cut and stop the bleeding. A few months later, I had another endoscopy performed by a different surgeon to confirm that the cut had healed, as I was still feeling some pain. I do not think I should be responsible for the costs of the second and third endoscopy.
