Injury as a Result of Surgery
Being the victim of surgical negligence can be a traumatic and stressful event. People are often anxious and frightened when told they have to go through surgery, but discovering that they have been treated poorly during or following the procedure frequently causes tremendous emotional distress and physical harm.
This medical procedure is intrinsically risky and all complications and side-effects will not necessarily be the result of surgery error. People typically need the services of skilled, experienced personal injury solicitors to understand the technical aspects of surgical negligence and find out whether they will be able to make a compensation claim.
Typically, surgery negligence comes under three categories:
- Complications, including those resulting from the surgery or occurring during the surgery
- Issues involving informed consent
- Diagnostic errors
Our surgery compensation solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation for treatment in both private and NHS hospitals. Your compensation will be paid out through insurance companies, so you do not have to worry about whether or not your claim will negatively impact the healthcare of other people, and the money you receive should cover the expenses the medical negligence caused, helping you to get your life back on track.
Medical negligence claims have a three-year window of opportunity following the time the personal injury was first noticed, so if you have suffered damages following surgical error, there is no better time to start claiming for compensation than today!
