    Failed surgery claim

    Making a failed surgery claim is an option open to victims of medical negligence, whether the treatment took place in a private hospital or a NHS trust. The majority of patients who have any kind of procedure carried out in a British hospital can be sure of receiving the best possible standard of care. However, although staff strive to maintain a safe clinical environment, even professionals can make mistakes, and those who work in the sphere of medicine are no different

    Although it is very rare, an operation or other type of medical treatment can go wrong. If you feel you have experienced such treatment, Accident Advice Helpline is here to assist you in making a failed surgery claim. Your case can be based on a number of factors – you may have received an injury due to medical negligence, or an oversight on the part of hospital staff. In many cases, either the procedure is not performed in the correct manner, or it is not carried out to the standard expected or required.

    Whatever the problem, badly performed surgery can have a number of negative effects on a victim. If you had the operation to correct a pre-existing medical condition, you may now be suffering increased pain, as the problem has been exacerbated. Similarly, if the initial procedure was botched in some way, you could find yourself having to endure further corrective surgery. It may increase your recovery time substantially, meaning that you are unable to go back to work and lose out financially through no fault of your own.

    Alternatively, you may feel unable to work the same amount of hours that you previously did or, if you have difficulty walking, you may need to use alternative transport to get to your place of work. In each of these instances, the impact on your cash flow can be severe. Making a claim for failed surgery will ensure that you can recoup some of your losses and start getting your life back on track.

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we want to make sure every victim of medical negligence gets the compensation to which they are entitled.  We understand that taking on a huge institution such as the NHS, or even a smaller private hospital, can be a daunting experience. That is why, once your claim has been approved, we will be with you every step of the way. Our no win, no fee policy means you have nothing to lose.
