It is important that you choose an experienced medical negligence solicitor for your surgical claim as these claims can often be complex to prove. We have experience of claims for compensation for negligent treatment during surgery in the NHS, private hospitals and the new semi-private NHS treatment Centres.
All surgery involves risks. A lot of our work relates to operations that have not gone to plan. Sometimes the outcome is a complication of surgery and not an indication of negligence. On other occasions we can establish a failure by the treating surgeon to perform to an acceptable standard.
Surgery claims have included:
- Cosmetic surgery issues
- Gynaecological issues
- Organ damage
- Retained objects inside patients
- Nerve damage
- Urological Claims
- Failure to obtain proper consent
- Wound infection & poor hygiene
- Anaesthetic awareness
- Brain damage
- Keyhole (Laparoscopy) Surgery
Negligence by surgeons can be due to faulty or misused instruments or from a lack of training. Some surgeons take on or are given too much work and fail to deal with consent issues properly or explain procedures post-surgery. This lack of communication can lead to negligence claims.
