Surgeons in the 21st century tend to have a specific area of specialisation, so it is hard to generalise about such claims – each matter has to be considered on its own facts. Issues can arise about poor surgical technique (such as causing damage to structures adjacent to the area where the surgery is being carried out) and about delays in diagnosis resulting in extensive surgery being required where much less major intervention would have been necessary with earlier, correct diagnosis (for example failing to diagnose acute appendicitis before the appendix ruptures). Negligent surgical care can result in significant injury and disability for a patient.
Whatever the cause, we can help you claim for your disability and get you the medical attention you need to get your independence back. We are expert lawyers with an understanding of how vital it is to get you the much needed help and compensation to which you are entitled.
Why make a claim?
If you have suffered an injury as a result of surgical negligence, you are entitled to claim compensation. Negligent surgical care can have a serious impact on your quality of life. We want to ensure you peace of mind, and the necessary assistance to allow you to enjoy life once more. Our specialist solicitors have years of experience of helping people who have suffered injury due to another’s fault or negligence.
Supporting your needs
As we have said, injuries arising from negligent surgical care can be life-changing and bring about the need for many kinds of assistance to allow you to regain your quality of life. This could involve obtaining the specialist treatment you require to maximise your recovery. In addition, your ability to work may be affected by the injury and we can assist with vocational re-training and assessing the financial costs to you of being unable to work for a period, or changing employment. The financial impact of all these things can be substantial. This is why it is vital to make a claim so we can ensure you obtain the settlement you deserve and require to safeguard your future.
