Surgical Mistake Claims

Start your claim

All surgery carries a risk of error. However, some mistakes can be considered negligent and may result in the patient experiencing serious physical and mental damage.

Although most surgeries are completed successfully, there are some occasions where avoidable mistakes do happen. These are referred to as surgical negligence.

Surgeries that more commonly lead to errors and surgical negligence include hip replacement, fracture repairs, spinal surgery, and foot/ankle/knee surgery. General surgery, involving the abdomen or bowel, is also an area in which mistakes arise more frequently. However, surgical errors can occur with any type of surgery, including gynaecological, cardiac, and renal.

Types of surgery claims

Some common types of surgical negligence include:

  • Injury to an organ or nerve due to poor surgical performance
  • Anaesthetic issues
  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Using an inappropriate implant or placing it wrongly
  • Foreign objects being left in the body
  • Surgical burns
