Surgical Accident Claims

Surgical Accident Compensation Claims

Undergoing surgery can be a daunting prospect in any circumstances as it involves placing your own welfare in the hands of another. In most cases, surgical procedures are carried out without complication; however there are occasions when accidents occur.

Whilst patients are made aware of the risks entailed in surgery, such risks should not include that of a medical practitioner providing a substandard level of care either during surgery or in the post-operative recovery period.

Making a Surgical Accident Claim

You may be able to obtain compensation if you have:

  • suffered an injury as a result of a surgical error;
  • experienced a prolonged period of recovery as a result of a surgical error;
  • been required to undergo further surgery as a result of a surgical error;
  • suffered an injury as a result of delay in your surgery being carried out.

Whether you have undergone surgery within the private sector or the NHS, Farleys can help you receive compensation for the pain, suffering and any financial loss you have incurred as a result of medical negligence.

We understand that pursuing a medical negligence claim can be upsetting and our expert solicitors will guide you every step of the way; helping you to claim the compensation you deserve.
