About Surgical Error Claims

Patients rely on medical professionals to provide them with the best possible care when carrying out a medical procedure. If you have faced negligence during your surgery, we highly recommend you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side now.

What is a surgical error?

A surgical error is when mistakes happen during operations, for example, injury to a nerve or artery during surgery. Sometimes complications during procedures are unavoidable, however, they are less likely to occur if procedures are carried out correctly. If you have experienced an injury due to someone else’s negligence, contact Solicitors On Your Side now.

Types of Surgical negligence

Our experienced medical negligence solicitors will help you with your medical negligence claims, the most common types of medical negligence claims include:

  • Unintended damage to arteries.
  • Problems with an anaesthetic. Providing too much or too little anaesthetic during surgery.
  • Failure to monitor a patient’s heart rate and breathing during surgery. The professionals must ensure the patient is in good health throughout their entire surgery.
  • Operating on the wrong limb or internal organ, which is usually known as a Never Event claim.
  • Failing to remove instruments from the body after the surgery. This can be extremely dangerous and can even lead to some internal bleeding.
  • Failing to obtain full and proper informed consent for surgical operation. The patient or their family must be completely briefed about the surgery, including any side effects or risks that may occur as a consequence of it.

other examples include:

  • Delay in surgery, due to misdiagnosis or late diagnosis.
  • Incorrect surgery performed because of misdiagnosis

We advise that these are just some examples of medical negligence claims concerning surgery. If you have experienced any sort of negligence during your surgery, we highly recommend that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side now.
