Carried out the wrong type of surgery

It is hard to imagine how you would feel being told that the surgery you had endured was wrong. Sadly this is exactly the experience of some people. We all trust surgeons to carry out the procedure to the best of their ability, yet we give little regard that they would perform the wrong surgery.

Surgical negligence can have a significant impact on patients and their families.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of negligent surgery you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Surgery performed on the wrong part

It is reasonable to expect a surgeon to perform surgery on the right part of the body, unfortunately, this is not always the case. It may seem strange that despite safety protocols surgical errors occur such as the operation being performed on the wrong body part.

When surgeons get things wrong it can have a significant impact on patients, if you or a loved one has suffered because of negligent surgery you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Foreign objects left inside the body

A surgeon uses a wide range of instruments and aids. Protocols are designed to ensure that 'never events' don't occur. Thankfully most procedures are routinely performed, however, this is not the case when patients are unnecessarily harmed by foreign objects left in their body from surgery.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of negligent surgery you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Severe nerve damage from botched surgery

One of the most common complications of surgery going wrong is nerve damage. It is reasonable to expect a surgeon to perform procedures diligently, and whilst this is normally the case, it is not every patient's experience. Surgical procedures often involve complex and intricate techniques, sadly, sometimes things go wrong causing damage to nerves.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of negligent surgery you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Errors by anaesthetists

Anaesthetists are skilled medical professionals who perform a crucial role in assisting surgeons by administering and managing anaesthesia. Although most procedures are routinely carried out, errors occur and sometimes these are due to failures by anaesthetists, such as miscalculation of the dose and insufficient monitoring. This can result in further surgery being required, extended recovery, complications, temporary or permanent disability or worse.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a lack of duty of care you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Performed surgery with faulty or damaged equipment

When going under the surgeon's knife it is reasonable to expect that instruments and equipment to be used are not damaged or faulty. Unfortunately, this is not always the case as some patients are avoidably harmed by surgeons performing operations with faulty and damaged medical equipment.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a lack of duty of care, maladministration or faulty medical equipment you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Unacceptable aftercare

Following surgery, a patient should expect suitable standards of aftercare. Good aftercare by nurses can help patients to recover promptly, help to identify infection and other complications. Although this is normally the case it is not everyone's experience.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a lack of duty of care you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I Claim? >

Failed to get informed consent

Before surgery is performed it is a legal obligation for surgeons to provide patients with sufficient and appropriate advice about the risks, side effects, and alternative treatments. Enough time should be given for the patient to think about the surgery so they can decide to go ahead with the procedure or not. If things go wrong and the consent was flawed the surgeon could be liable.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a lack of informed consent you may be entitled to claim compensation.
