Compensation for an infection after general surgery

Surgery is something that we will normally all have to go through after we sustain an injury and at some point in our lifetimes, it’s something that we will all definitely experience. In general, surgery is a relatively safe procedure and with the advancements in modern technology it’s something that is carried out on such a frequency that it’s really not something that a person should be concerned about.

Unfortunately however this is not always the case, and in some situations mistakes made during general surgery can lead to even more serious implications further down the line – one common example of where this might happen is in the case of an infection – and this can have serious health consequences for you down the line.

In which situations could an infection occur after general surgery?

If you have been the victim of an error made during general surgery then there are a number of situations where you may look to make a claim and these include:

  • Claims for errors made by a surgeon
  • Claims for the use of unhygienic equipment
  • Claims for errors made by a nurse
  • Claims for errors made by an anaesthetist
  • Claims for carelessness during surgery.

What types of surgery could lead to this problem?

In general any surgery can lead to an infection if it hasn’t been carried out properly, or if the appropriate tools haven’t been used, and this could leave you with relatively serious injuries as a result. Whenever you are performing surgery you need to ensure that the hygiene in the operating theatre is of the highest standards and if it’s not, you could look to claim against the person who is responsible for your injuries.
