Failed or Wrong Surgical Procedure

Surgery can be an overwhelming event for many people, but there may come a time when surgery is the only option. You would hope to undergo the operation quickly and without incident under the care of a trained professional and would hope that your recovery would be painless and straightforward.

However it is not that simple in some cases and if you feel that your surgeon was negligent towards you and that your surgery has had complications, you may be eligible for a claim. If the operation was not a success and you were required to have further surgery after to correct, you may be entitled to compensation.

Types of procedure you may be able to claim for:

  • Unsuccessful operations (some exclusions apply)
  • Operations that created preventable new problems
  • The original problem being worsened by surgery
  • The wrong part of the body being operated on
  • Operations that weren’t necessary
