Compensation for surgical errors
Surgical procedures do not always go to plan. Surgical mistakes and errors do happen even in the hands of most experienced surgeons and medical experts. In most medical negligence compensation claims involving surgical errors or mistakes it is relatively straightforward to establish that the surgeon’s acts or omissions fell below the requisite standard of care if the surgical error or mistake was a preventable by the surgeon taking appropriate steps or precautions during the operative procedure, and the surgeon failed to take these steps or precautions.

When can I claim compensation for surgical errors and mistakes within medical malpractice?
The mere fact that a surgical error or mistake has occurred does not necessarily mean that your surgeon was negligent. In most circumstances, however, it is relatively straightforward to establish negligence on the part of the surgeon or medical expert where the surgical error or mistake was preventable during the surgical procedure by the surgeon taking appropriate precautions or steps during or in the lead up to the procedure. In other words, the only time you are unlikely to have a medical negligence compensation claim, as a result of a surgical error or mistake is when nothing could have been done by the surgeon either before, during or after your procedure that would have prevented the surgical error or mistake from occurring.
