What counts as surgical negligence?
Surgical negligence covers a number of different areas, including:
- Damage to organs such as the bowel, heart or lungs
- Operating on the wrong part of the body
- Amputating the wrong limb
- Surgical items or pieces of equipment being left inside the patient’s body
- Nerve damage or other internal injuries
- Excessive or unexpected scarring
- Anaesthetic complications
If you’re in any doubt about whether or not you have a valid reason to make a claim, don’t suffer in silence. Call us today on 0800 540 4258 .

A mistake may have been made after your operation took place while you were recovering.
Perhaps the medical staff looking after you failed to notice the early signs of an infection or that your organs were not functioning properly. They may have also failed to notice that there were obstructions in your veins, bowel or intestines.
If you suffered a complication or additional injury following your surgery, we may be able to help you claim compensation.
You can call us today to find out if you can make a compensation claim today on 0800 540 4258 .
If we think you do have a compensation claim for a post-surgical error, we could put you in contact with a specialist solicitor today.
Claiming on behalf of someone else
Some surgery errors can leave the victim unable to claim for compensation themselves and access the justice that they deserve.
On those occasions, you may be able to make a no win no fee claim on behalf of the injured person.
The compensation awarded on their behalf could help you pay for additional care and cover any lost earnings the victim may have suffered.
This means you could claim for a friend or family member that is unable to make decisions about the court case themselves; or that you could claim compensation for your child following a surgical error or negligence.
You can find more information about claiming on behalf of a child here.
Why should I claim?
Making a medical negligence claim following a surgical error is an important step for several reasons.
If you’ve been injured, and it was someone else’s fault, we think you should get the compensation you deserve.
Your compensation could help you pay for extra medical care or help you recover any lost earnings after time away from work.
Your claim is also important because it may highlight unsafe practices being carried out by private or NHS surgeons. Highlighting this poor or unsafe practice by claiming could help prevent other people suffering in the same way that you have.
You may also have long-term complications as a result of your surgical error. Claiming compensation following a surgical error can help cover the cost of adaptations to your home and life.
