Surgical Error Compensation Claim

Being admitted to a hospital for a surgical procedure can be scary and unfamiliar as it involves entrusting your own welfare in the hands of another. As a result, you or your loved ones choose to put yourselves at the mercy of the professional medical staff, who you trust know their duty and won’t make you worse off than when you went in. In most cases, surgical procedures are carried out without complication; however, there are occasions when the worst happens, we are human after all, and the doctor or the support staff can make a medical error, which leads to a surgical error.

To be more precise, a surgical error is an avoidable error during the surgical procedure. All forms of surgeries involve an element of risk. For that reason, a patient needs to sign a form of “informed consent” before undergoing surgery that states you understand operation involves certain known risks. However, surgical errors go beyond the identified risks of surgery, which means the mistakes are unexpected and can be termed as medical negligence.

Our experienced clinical and medical negligence solicitors do understand how devastating and upset you will be following a medical negligence in your surgery process and you may even encounter long-term health complications from the blunders that were made during your surgery procedure. At Turner White Solicitors, we provide you an initial free and confidential consultation to assess the situations of your surgical accident, and aid you to understand whether you have a potential surgical error claim.
