Whilst relatively uncommon sometimes surgical errors can be made with the wrong part of the body being operated on or the wrong limb being amputated.
We’ve recently been working with a lady who required a skin tag removed. Unfortunately her own Consultant was not available to carry out the surgery and another surgeon misread her notes and performed much more extensive surgery.
These errors are often caused by the demanding operating schedules many hospitals have to contend with or a lack of continuity of care with patients often having their operations performed by surgeons they’ve had little or no prior contact with or locums employed to cover staff absences.
If you have suffered from a surgical error, you may be eligible to claim for compensation. Get in touch with out team to confidentially discuss your claim.
