Surgical Error

Medical negligence can occur during the course of surgery or following surgery when complications or infection may arise.

All surgery carries risks and complications that arise are not necessarily negligent. There are however always cases where there was clearly a failure by the treating surgeon to perform the operation to an acceptable standard, or as in some cases carry out appropriate surgery for the problem.

Claims frequently arise from:

  • Nerve damage
  • Organ damage
  • Avoidable wound infection/prolonged recovery
  • Anaesthetic awareness
  • Negligently performed colorectal surgery
  • Gall bladder removal
  • Delays in performing surgery

As surgery can be performed on any part of the body the nature of the injury is a very wide ranging and the resulting injury be very minor or catastrophic. A failed knee replacement operation may lead to a period of unnecessary pain and suffering and the need for a redo operation which may resolve matters. A failed or negligently carried out operation to the spine may result in a catastrophic injury with life changing consequences.
