When complications do occur, they are usually unavoidable and no negligence is involved. However, sometimes complications happen that are due to the failure of the treating surgeon to perform the procedure to an acceptable standard.
Problems can also arise when the risks of a procedure have not been properly discussed or the details communicated with the patient.
Some surgical errors can have extremely serious consequences. These can be far-reaching and even life-changing.
If you have gone into surgery and suffered as a result of mistakes being made during the procedure, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
