Unnecessary Surgical Procedure Claims

We've got your unnecessary surgical procedures claim covered

Unnecessary Surgical Procedures


Few people manage to go through life without having to undergo any surgical procedures. For many, surgery is an unpleasant yet necessary event in our lives. As surgery becomes more common in this country, the whole process becomes a lot more of an effective way to combat illnesses. But that does not mean to say that surgery should take place when it doesn’t necessarily need to.

Medical professionals usually do an excellent job of looking after us when we feel our worst. But medical errors do unfortunately happen, and they can have a drastic effect on your quality of life. If an unnecessary surgical procedure has caused you undue harm, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim. In most circumstances the person that would be held accountable for the negligence is the individual who performed the surgery. In other cases it may be another member of medical staff such as a GP who misdiagnosed you initially and therefore sent you for surgery that you did not require.

You may be able to claim if:

  • Surgical procedures have caused new injuries not previously sustained
  • Increased recuperation time due to surgery that was not necessary
  • Potential allergies or infections that could have been avoided during surgery
  • If the surgery has made old injuries, or the reason for the surgery to worsen

What to do if you have suffered an unnecessary surgical procedure

Preparing yourself for surgery can be an incredibly stressful time. You may be worried about your existing condition, or concerned about the diagnosis you will receive as a result of your surgery. Added to this, there is the concern about the surgery itself. If your surgery is later deemed to be unnecessary, this could be as a result of negligent action from the medical team.

Further complications arise when the unnecessary surgery aggravates your presenting symptoms, or causes new injuries and stresses to your body. This is a distressing and physically enduring experience for anyone to go through, and when this action arises through negligent treatment, you have the right to enquire about compensation.
