As you are putting your livelihood into the hands of another person it can be a tough decision when you choose who you would like to perform your surgery.

When it comes to surgery, the risks can be incredibly high and if you do suffer as the result of an accident then you may be entitled to a compensation pay out to cover the costs of your medical expenses and any potential loss of income that you have incurred.

How can I be injured in surgery?

Performing either complex or basic surgery procedures can come with a number of risks to your health and if the surgery is not correctly performed you could be left with lasting health issues. Surgery involves the use of very sharp implements and one slip of the hand could easily cut through an important artery or organ in your body leaving you with serious health problems. 

In addition, parts that are inserted into your body including implants and any heart assistance products could be faulty and therefore could lead to further injuries or a failure of the surgery altogether.   

What can I claim for?

There are a number of surgery related incidents that could happen to you and if you suffer as a consequence you may be able to make a claim. These incidents include:

  • Incorrect anaesthesia – If you are not given the correct amount of anaesthetic or have an allergic reaction to the type of anaesthetic then you may be eligible to make a claim
  • Incomplete surgery – If the surgery does not complete what it was scheduled to do or leaves part of the problem still intact
  • Incorrect surgery – If the wrong type of surgery is performed
  • Incorrect plastic surgery – Any problems with plastic surgery including scarring, not achieving the desired effect or any faulty implants or products
  • Incorrect incisions – Cutting into the skin in the wrong area or cutting at wrong parts of the body can cause internal bleeding and lasting health issues.
