Compensation for surgery gone wrong

Although hospitals are a place that we generally try to avoid, we will all find that at some point in our life more often than not we will require surgery. This could either be serious surgery or perhaps to a lesser extent minor surgery, but regardless of what it is and what is required, with any type of surgery there is always the potential for risks to occur.

In general most surgeons are highly trained professionals who can work with us through any problems which might occur, but unfortunately this is not always the case. If you feel that you have been the victim of failed surgery, then you could look to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred. 

Where could surgery potentially go wrong?

Surgery is always a risk and unfortunately there are a number of situations where surgery could potentially go wrong. Some common examples of where this might occur include:

  • Errors made during a surgical procedure
  • The use of unhygienic equipment which leads to infection
  • Errors made during diagnosis
  • Surgery which is performed on the inappropriate area
  • Surgery which is performed by an unqualified healthcare professional.

What injuries could I sustain after surgery goes wrong?

If you are the victim of surgery which has gone wrong then there are a number of potential injuries that you could look to claim for and unfortunately many of these will usually be serious injuries which have come about as the result of poor surgical technique. These injuries are generally specific to the area which the surgery has taken place in and can include infections, damage to surrounding organs and tissue and extensive scarring on the skin surface.
