Failure to Remove Unintended Foreign Objects During Surgery
It is never ideal when we are told we will need to have a surgical procedure to help us get better again. We have come to expect a high level of care when it comes to being operated on, which will ultimately result in a healthier outcome for ourselves.
Although the need for surgery has seen a rise in the last couple of years, for a variety of reasons, it also means that surgeons are becoming more skilled and practised in their chosen fields, technically allowing for less errors. If you underwent an operation where a foreign object was left in your body and has caused you harm as a result, you may be entitled to compensation.
In most instances, the person you would be looking to claim against would be the person who you feel has been negligent towards you. This may be the surgeon themselves, any assisting medical staff or the hospital trust.
The types of foreign objects that you may be able to make a claim for are:
- Small cameras and other visual items
- Operating tools
- Tubes and other equipment
- Swabs and other gauze type items
