Surgical Operations Gone Wrong
We understand how it can be distressing to learn that something has gone wrong with your operation or surgery. This is why Mercury Legal are here to listen to your surgical negligence complaint. If you have suffered after an operation or surgery or if a loved one has died following the actions of a negligent surgeon, then speak to our clinical negligence team on 0800 122 3130. They will be able to give you clear legal advice on your right to claim compensation.
Although the majority of operations and procedures in the UK are successful, complications can and do happen. Sometimes they are unavoidable and form part of the risk involved in particular surgical procedures, however infections and nerve damage after an operation or issues may arise as a result of poor surgical after-care can leave you or a loved one with long-term or permanent injuries.
If you believe that the hospital or clinic in which your surgery took place didn’t provide you with a reasonable standard of care, or that your surgeon did not sufficiently carry out their duty of care, you might be entitled to make a claim for surgical negligence compensation.
