Surgery Related Injuries & Conditions
While in hospital we place our trust in the expertise and experience of medical professionals looking after us. Although for the most part they do an excellent job, sometimes things don’t always go according to plan. Even with the best will in the world mistakes can sometimes be made, and whilst this might not be a big deal in most professions, in the field of medicine a simple mistake can sometimes lead to catastrophic consequences.
You don’t have to look particularly far to find news articles describing examples of people having the wrong kidney removed, having surgical implements left inside of them, or even having completely unnecessary surgery performed. These mistakes are obviously regrettable and, considering the detrimental impact that they can have on peoples’ lives, it seems only fair that the victims are properly compensated.
How can this happen?
Despite the many safeguards in place to prevent mistakes from occurring, doctors and other medical practitioners are only human, and as such are prone to human error. In most industries this wouldn’t be such a big deal, however in the field of medicine, lives can potentially be ruined by such mistakes.
Sometimes an apology isn’t enough, particularly when you factor in the huge effect that surgery related injuries can have on one’s life as well as on the lives of those around them. At Injury Lawyers 4U we work to ensure that if you’ve been the victim of an injury as a result of surgical malpractice or negligence, you receive fair and proper compensation for its ill effects both in the short term and long term.
What are surgical injuries?
Surgical injuries might include incorrect procedure, operating on the wrong part of the body or even leaving medical implements inside the patient. Injuries sustained as a result can be severely debilitating for a patient, and at Injury Lawyers 4U we fight to ensure that anyone who is a victim of a surgical injury caused by the negligence of a medical professional is compensated fairly. We operate on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, and specialise in personal injury and accident claims.
It is not our intention to discredit or undermine the medical profession, however at the same time we recognise that mistakes can happen, and when they do the person responsible for the error should be held accountable. More importantly, we feel that the victims of these mistakes are entitled to compensation for the suffering that they have had to endure as a result of an error that was not their fault.
