Undergoing surgery can be extremely stressful, especially given the serious consequences that can emerge should anything go wrong. You place your trust in medical professionals to carry out the procedure properly, and although an operation is meant to help you, mistakes can result in things taking a turn for the worse.
Even the most experienced medical staff can make errors. These can have very damaging after-effects, and if this happens to you or someone you know, you can make a claim to try and compensate for the pain and suffering caused. Do so by calling us on 0161 928 3848 or complete the enquiry form and we will give you a ring.
Surgical negligence examples
Risk is carried in every surgical procedure, but sometimes negligence on behalf of a medical professional can increase this risk and lead to a patient suffering serious harm. Doctors and surgeons are expected to carry out their work to the very best of their ability, but known instances of things going wrong include:
- Foreign objects left in the patient’s body, such as scalpels and pads
- Cosmetic surgery issues
- Wrong patient surgery
- Organ damage
- Anaesthetic awareness
- Vasectomy errors
- Lasik eye surgery errors
What you can claim for
If you suffer because of negligence during surgery, it is important you claim for the compensation to which you are entitled. The consequences of falling victim to medical errors can be extremely serious, even fatal. There are various factors you can claim for, including:
- The pain and suffering caused to you and your family
- Medical costs
- Any time off work you have had to take
