Surgical negligence

Surgical accident claims come in many forms. They are part of the reason that surgery is such a daunting prospect. Unfortunately, despite the expertise of medical professionals human error and surgical malpractice is an all too real possibility and can have lasting and sometimes fatal consequences. Patients are aware of the risks involved in surgery but these risks should not include a highly qualified medical practitioner delivering inadequate care to the patient.

If you believe you might have grounds for a surgical accident claim, talk to one of our expert legal advisors today for free initial advice. Our highly skilled medical negligence solicitors have years of experience in managing surgical accident claims for victims and their families. We work hard to deliver the appropriate compensation for pain, suffering and ongoing care or treatment. We are also sensitive to the needs of a surgical accident victim and their loved ones.

Consequences of surgical accidents

The consequences of surgical accidents are not limited to physical injury or financial loss. Surgical accidents can result in psychological suffering. We provide sympathetic care and advice, in addition to securing proportionate compensation for your future needs. We collate all of the necessary evidence including your medical records and proof of inadequate care and we consult respected medical professionals to calculate an appropriate level of compensation.

We have represented many victims of surgical negligence and their families, throughout the UK and we have helped these individuals to earn the right amount of compensation for their circumstances, their future treatment and possible loss of earnings.

To enquire about a surgical accident claim of your own, call us on 0203 817 9430 and receive free initial no obligation legal advice. Alternatively you can send our clinical negligence team an email via our contact form.
