All surgery involves risk and those risks should be fully explained to you before going ahead. If this is not done the Doctor or Surgeon may be have negligent.

Should complications occur it is important that they are spotted promptly so that they can be treated to minimise any harm. Medical staff should therefore provide appropriate care after the operation and ensure you are given the correct advice when you go home.

In extreme cases you or a loved one may not survive or suffer prolonging harm. You may also receive inappropriate treatment which you do not need and which causes you harm/unnecessary pain and suffering.


Some common things that can go wrong in operations are:

  • Failure to advise on the risks
  • Performing inappropriate surgery
  • Operating without the appropriate expertise
  • Equipment malfunctioning or being left in the body
  • Inadequate technique leading to damage to the body
  • Nerve damage
  • Blood clots and loss of blood circulation
  • Infection
  • Failure to monitor or provide appropriate after-care so that complications are not noticed.
  • Mistakes during amputation surgery

If you feel you have been let down and suffered injury as a result of negligent treatment during or after surgery, you may have a claim for compensation and other losses. If you consider that you have been let down, suffered injury and emotional distress as a result of a failed and negligent surgical treatment in A&E, you may have a claim for compensation and other losses.
