Our Clinical and Medical Negligence lawyers have vast experience in surgical error compensation claims and have advised on a wide range of mistakes following both planned and emergency operations. Medical negligence as a result of surgery can be very traumatic and can leave the patient in a devastating position and on occasions can even result in premature death.

Compensation claims for surgical errors can take a number of forms.  Our Clinical and Medical Negligence solicitors have a vast experience in this area and deal with very serious cases of surgical negligence such as:

  • conducting unnecessary surgery as a result of misdiagnosis or misinterpretation in respect of hospital notes or x-rays
  • leaving surgical instruments inside a patient following a procedure
  • cutting or damaging nearby tissues or organs whilst carrying out a procedure
  • failure to repair or correct any damage caused during a procedure either at the time or during recovery
  • accidentally severing vital blood vessels or nerves
  • carrying out the wrong procedure than the one expected
  • conducting the surgery at the wrong body location
  • removing healthy tissues or organs inappropriately
  • failing to fully explain all of the risks and dangers of a procedure before hand, referred to as a lack of informed consent.

The above errors can lead to a number of severe complications ranging from infection to death, and can cause serious psychological damage as a result of the neglect and the physical injury sustained.
