Most surgical procedures come with an element of risk; however, we put our trust in medical professionals that everything will be fine. Sometimes this isn’t the case and surgical errors occur which can have a devastating effect on the patient.

We have extensive experience representing customers who have sustained serious injury following surgical treatment.  It is difficult to generalise surgical medical negligence cases, as cases can derive from a variety of situations such as; orthopaedic surgery, where there may be failed union of bone and subsequent infection, general surgery such as a failed cholecystectomy or a perforation of the bowel caused during intestinal surgery.

These are just a few of the situations that can occur, but each case is different and as is the person at the heart of it, so our specialist team tailor their support to your needs.
