Wrong Site Surgery Claims

Reviewed by
Peter Rigby, Director of Medical Neglience

We've got your claim for wrong site surgery covered

Surgery is usually a necessary part of treatment in many cases. Surgery is often a delicate and intricate procedure and should always be carried out by a trained professional in the field. If the surgery does not receive the utmost care and attention it requires, things can go wrong and the results can be devastating.

Through a variety of issues, such as miscommunication or direct negligence of the professional, the wrong area of the body may be operated on and this can have direct consequences on the overall health of the patient.

You may be able to claim in the event of:

  • The unnecessary removal of an organ
  • General surgery in the wrong site
  • Further health complications arising from wrong site surgery
  • Existing symptoms worsening as a result of wrong site surgery
  • The wrong area of the body being operated on
  • Amputation of the wrong body part

Vincent's Story

"He's always there for us"

At the age of 2 we noticed our son Vincent had trouble with his hearing. We had this testing over a number of years and were repeatedly told there was nothing wrong.

Initially we thought this was a speech and language problem, this wasn't the case. It took 4 to 5 years of assessments, with the constant response that there was nothing wrong with his hearing. A different test was them carried on Vincent overnight where it was found he was profoundly deaf.

After years of frustration we were finally able to provide Vincent with the support he required and received an implant. This has enable Vincent to be able to hear. The support from our solicitors has enabled to to gain access to specialist which have supported Vincent in closing the gap in his speech he lost out on to his peers.
