Surgical Errors

Undergoing surgery is stressful enough without finding out that something has gone wrong during the operation. If you have been harmed by the negligence of the Surgeon, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.

The most common cases of surgical errors that we deal with include the following:-

  • Breast surgery errors;
  • Failed sterilisation compensation claims;
  • Anaesthetic awareness;
  • Damage to the bowel during surgery;
  • Injury to the bowel duct;
  • Amputation claims;
  • Anaesthetic error claims;
  • Failed vasectomy claims.

Surgery always carries a large element of risk. Patients tend to put a great deal of trust in the Surgeon and when negligence causes further pain, that trust is betrayed.

The effects of surgical errors are varied. Patients suffer pain and discomfort, some have suffered the loss of a limb, disability or even death. Patients are unable to work while they heal and adjust to physical changes. In some cases, they can be left with physical and psychological scars.
