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.
