What is surgery negligence?
The vast majority of operations carried out throughout the UK on a daily basis are performed without any issues. But in some rare occasions something can go wrong. Negligence by surgeons or clinicians can be due to faulty or misused instruments or from a lack of training.
Some surgeons may be over worked which could be a failure to deal with consent issues properly or explain procedures post-surgery. This lack of communication to the patient and other medical professionals can lead to surgery negligence claims.
Many people would not think they would be due any compensation for there misfortunes, but this is simply not the case. Having an operation can be a nerve racking at the best of times, not at least if something goes wrong. Suffering medical negligence can affect many aspects of your life such as loss of earnings and self esteem. This is why we believe that no one should suffer because of someones negligence.
