Surgery Negligence Claims
There is always an element of risk when undergoing surgery. However, it is important that any surgery performed is done so to the correct standard. Sadly, mistakes can be made during surgery which can lead to unnecessary pain and suffering, and life changing injuries. The effects can be difficult and lead to time off work, family or friends caring for you, and expenses for medical treatment.
The injuries can include scarring, ongoing pain, bowel and urine incontinence, or psychological symptoms such as low self- esteem or depression.
The medical mistakes which occur can be due to any of the following:
- Medical errors taking place during the surgery itself due to low quality or poor surgical technique
- Foreign objects left inside the body
- Failure to inform you about the risks of surgery
- Causing nerve damage
- Causing an injury to an internal organ
- Anaesthetic awareness during surgery
