Fatal surgical negligence is when a patient dies due to a lack of duty of care by the surgeon, the surgical team, or the NHS hospital involved. It is surgical care below a standard that no other surgeon acting professionally would provide.
Fatal surgical negligence comes in many forms, and the family left behind may find it very upsetting to learn that a loved one has died due to medical negligence.
The fatal surgical negligence could be due to surgical errors, lack of care by a surgeon or by undergoing unnecessary surgery.
Medical negligence is medical care below that any other medical professional acting at an acceptable level would provide. In a fatal surgical negligence case, the NHS hospital or private care clinic has not provided your father, mother, son, daughter, husband, or wife with an acceptable level of medical care, causing their death.
