Most surgeons are specialised professionals in a particular area of medicine and surgical mistakes do not happen very often. However, when mistakes are made it can leave you with unnecessary physical and emotional pain. At P.A. Duffy and Company our legal team offer a range of services and will provide for your needs in helping you to make a claim for compensation.
Making a claim for compensation
- Every surgery has a small element of risk which a surgeon is obligated to explain to you before getting your informed consent. However, surgical errors can fall outside the scope of consent and are potentially negligent.
- Such errors can include an incorrect dose of anaesthesia or infections arising from contaminated surgical tools for example. A wide range of surgical errors can constitute medical negligence, our expert solicitors will break down the legal aspects of your case and advise you on the potential for a successful compensation claim.
