Compensation for surgical errors

Although surgery isn’t a very popular choice for many of us, the fact is that throughout our lives we will most likely have to undergo the knife at some point and when we do, we want to be safe in the knowledge that our surgery is being carried out in a safe and efficient manner. In most situations our surgeons are highly qualified professionals who do an excellent job to ensure our health and well-being, but unfortunately this is not always the case.

If you have been the victim of a surgical error then you could have sustained a number of potential long-term injuries and been through a great deal of pain as a result. If you do find yourself in this situation then you could consider making a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred. 

Who could be responsible for any surgical errors that I sustain?

In general there are two main people who can be responsible for your surgical errors and these are either your surgeon or your nurse/anaesthetist. Your surgeon could be careless during the operation causing injury to surrounding tissues and organs. Alternately you could be subject to a negligent nurse who may not have taken the appropriate hygiene measures on the equipment that has been used during your surgery and accordingly you could consider a claim here. 

Where could I suffer from this type of negligence?

If you do feel that you have suffered negligence at the hands of a surgical error then there are a number of areas where you may consider a compensation claim and these include:

  • Errors sustained through poor hygiene
  • Errors sustained through physical injuries during surgery
  • Surgery performed in the wrong area
  • Errors during anaesthetic.
