Surgical error can take many forms; there could be a failure to diagnose; failure to operate with the appropriate urgency; or the patient may not have been advised properly about the risks or alternatives to surgery. Injuries can arise during surgery if adjacent organs, nerves or other bodily structures are damaged. Post-operatively, there could be a failure to monitor a patient or take appropriate precautions to avoid infection. Occasionally, cases can arise where surgical instruments and swabs have not been removed leading to a further unnecessary operation.
Patients have a right to be told about the benefits and risks of any procedure they may face, including warning signs that could suggest post-operative complications. Our clinical negligence team has extensive knowledge and experience in representing clients who have suffered surgical errors.
Surgical negligence claims can involve a wide variety of medical procedures. For example such claims can relate to orthopaedic surgery, gynaecological surgery, bowel surgery, eye surgery, cosmetic procedures, heart surgery, neurosurgery and urological surgery.
Everyone is different, the treatment they undergo and how they respond to that treatment will always be different. Claims for cases of sub-standard surgery can be made whether the operation was essential, elective or undertaken for purely cosmetic reasons.
