A surgery negligence claim is a legal action taken by a patient who has suffered harm or injury due to the negligent actions or inactions of healthcare providers during surgical procedures. It falls under the broader umbrella of medical negligence and is designed to obtain compensation for the harm suffered.
You might experience surgery negligence in a number of different ways. It could be a case of a surgical error made during the procedure itself, such as incorrect incisions, organ perforation, or leaving surgical instruments within the patient's body. Alternatively, it might involve negligence before the operation, like inadequate patient evaluation or failure to gain informed consent. Post-operative negligence, including poor aftercare, missed infection signs, or inadequate follow-up, also falls within this area.
