What are Surgical Error Claims?
Surgical error claims occur when a medical professional (generally, a surgeon) provides sub-standard surgical care to a patient.
All Surgeons owe their patients a “Duty of Care”. This means that if your surgeon falls below the standard that would be expected, they have been negligent. This results in claims for surgical negligence.
Surgical error claims should not happen. But they do. If you believe that the standard of care that has been provided to you during surgery has let you down, speak to a specialist solicitor today and get vital legal advice.
There are strict time limits on making surgical error claims. You have 3 years from the date of the negligence or 3 years from the date you suspected negligence. That is why it is extremely important that you seek expert legal advice as soon as possible.
Our surgical negligence compensation claims solicitors can move quickly with your claim. However, it is vital that you seek advice as soon as possible to protect your legal rights. Do not delay as it can result in you missing the chance to obtain justice for your suffering.
What are the Causes of Surgical Error Claims?
Surgical error claims are made following a wide range of surgical procedures. There are a lot of causes and they can vary according to the type of treatment you are receiving.
Our claims solicitors have come across hundreds of reasons for surgical negligence. The incidents can range from human error through to failure to properly clean surgical equipment.
Some of the most common reasons for surgical negligence are as a result of:
- Human Surgical Errors
- Surgery performed on the incorrect body part
- Failure to follow surgical procedures
- Lack of Sanitisation
- Failure to properly examine before and after surgery.
Despite the rise in the number of surgical error claims, a recent study shows that surgeons do not believe that medical errors are one of the largest problems in healthcare today. Perhaps it is this complacent attitude to medical mistakes that results then being made.
However, at least half of physicians who took part in the survey believe there are 2 very important causes that contribute to claims for surgical errors. The first is understaffing of nurses in hospitals. The 2nd is fatigue on the part of health professionals.
It is not acceptable for surgical errors to happen simply because the hospital has failed to adequately staff its operations. Medical professionals should plan ahead to ensure that all patient needs are met.
