Medical Negligence arising from surgery

If you’ve suffered an injury or complication as a result of a surgical procedure, you may be entitled to make a medical negligence claim. Surgical procedures can often be complex and carry inherent risks, but when mistakes are made due to the negligence of medical professionals, patients may experience serious harm.

At Ellisons Solicitors, we understand the devastating impact that surgical negligence can have on your health and wellbeing. Our experienced solicitors can help you to understand your legal rights and pursue the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Types of surgical negligence claims

There are many different types of surgical negligence claims, including:

  • Wrong site surgery – this occurs when a surgeon operates on the wrong part of the body, or even the wrong patient.
  • Inadequate consent – if a surgeon fails to fully explain the risks and benefits of a procedure, offer any alternate treatment options, or obtain proper consent, a patient may be able to make a claim for medical negligence if they suffer an injury as a result of the procedure.
  • Surgical errors – mistakes can happen during surgery, such as punctured organs or blood vessels, which can lead to serious complications.
  • Post-operative complications – if a patient experiences complications after a surgery, and it’s found that proper medical care was not provided, it may be possible to make a medical negligence claim.

Making a surgical negligence claim

To make a claim arising from negligence during surgery, you will need to prove that the medical professional responsible for your care failed to provide an acceptable level of care, and that this directly caused your injury or complication. This can be a difficult process, which is why it’s important to seek legal advice from a specialist medical negligence solicitor.

At Ellisons Solicitors, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and assess whether you have a valid claim. If we believe you have a strong case, we can work on a no win, no fee basis, which means you won’t have to pay any legal fees unless we are successfully in securing compensation for your injuries.
