Surgical negligence is when a surgeon carries out surgery below accepted standards. It is carrying out a surgical procedure at a level below what is expected by a medical professional. No other surgeon acting reasonably would make the mistake which is deemed to be surgical negligence.
There are many types of surgical negligence. You can be a victim of a minor type of surgical negligence of the more serious kind such as ororation of organs or damage to structures which should have been protected.
Unnecessary surgical negligence claims arise where a patient is taken down to theatre and put under a general anaesthetic only for the surgeon to then realise that they do not have the correct equipment to complete the operation.
When you are a victim of surgical negligence, you can sue for compensation. The money you get for your compensation claim will help you regain your health and recoup any lost income.
Expert medical negligence solicitors, such as the Medical Negligence Team, will fight your claim and get you the compensation you deserve for the surgical errors.
