surgical negligence frequently asked questions

Surgical negligence is a type of clinical and medical negligence, where an individual is subjected to receiving incorrect treatment, delayed treatment or sub-standard treatment by a surgeon or other medical professional. 
If the nerve damage you’ve sustained was a direct result of negligence during your surgery, then you may be eligible to bring a surgery compensation claim. Sometimes during surgery, doctors will need to operate near to nerves in certain parts of the body, which can be damaged through negligence in this way. Your nerves can also be damaged in other ways, such as poorly-administered injections. 
If you’ve chosen to have cosmetic surgery, the last thing you want is for your surgeon to act in a negligent way. Whether you’re having breast surgery or facial surgery concerning your eyes, brows or even ears, your surgeon and doctors have a duty of care regarding your health. 
Yes, if evidence proves the cause of your operation going wrong was indeed the negligence of your surgeon(s), you may be able to bring an operation gone wrong claim. In some cases, operations can go wrong through no fault of the surgeon, which is why it’s best to contact our legal professionals to get an understanding of your situation before bringing a surgery claim. 
Typically you have three years from the date of knowledge to bring a claim, which is usually the date of your surgery or the date you became aware of any resulting damage.  If you’re still unsure about timings and wish to talk to someone about pursuing a surgery lawsuit, one of our clinical negligence solicitors will be able to advise you further.
