How do I know if my surgery was negligent?
Surgical neglicence occurs when mistakes made during operations by medical practitioners can leave you with further injuries, pain, or suffering. The event of this happening suggests that the surgeon or medical professional involved did not meet the clinical standards that they should have.
Every scenario is different, and a full, complete list of everything that constitutes surgical negligence would be endless. Still, there a a number of examples of surgical negligence that we see occuring more commonly that others.
Examples of these are:-
An operation being performed in the wrong way or on the wrong body part
Foreign objects becoming lost or left in the body as a result of the operation, such as medical equipment
Too much/too little anaesthetic being administered for the operation being performed
Failure of medical professionals to warn you as your risks as a patient, or failure to check any personal circumstances that may make you ineligible for said operation
Infection arising as a result of inproper sanitisation practices during the operation
Nerve or organ damage as a result of the operation
Still, this list is far from exhaustive. If you think that you have been subject to medical negligence during surgery in a way that is not listen here, get in touch with our expert medical negligence personal injury solicitors here.
How long do I have to make a medical negligence claim?
Generally speaking, you have three years to make a claim for personal injury if it occurred in England and Wales. This three-year period starts either on the date of the negligent act if you are aware of it or in some Medical Negligence Claims the three year period is deemed to start when you become aware of the link between your injury and the act of negligence; this is referred to as the 'date of knowledge'.
If you do not either settle your personal injury claim, or issue proceedings in the County Court within your three-year time limit, your claim will become automatically Statute Barred under the Limitation Act 1980.
