Despite the advances in medical science and technology, all surgical procedures carry risks for complications during and after the operation. When things go wrong on the operating table due to the medical negligence, errors and misjudgement of healthcare personnel, then the patient can commence a claim for negligence.
You can file surgery claims in many instances as long as you have initial proof of the physical and psychological injuries and illnesses suffered as a result of medical negligence. We can provide expert legal assistance on claims relating a wide range of issues including but not limited to:
- Organ damage
- Brain damage
- Nerve damage
- Wound infection
- Anaesthetic awareness
- Retained objects inside the patient
- Urological claims
- Failure to obtain the appropriate consent for the surgery
- Poor hygiene
These medical-surgical issues can be caused by a wide range of causes, such as the surgeons being over-fatigued or under-experienced for the operation.
