What is a Surgical
Error Compensation
claim?

When undergoing surgery, there is always an element of risk. However, all surgeons owe a duty of care to their patients and anyone undergoing surgery is entitled to receive a certain level of care. When mistakes happen during surgery, this can result in injury to the patient which can have lifechanging consequences and sadly, in some instances, can cause death.

Not all issues during surgery will be due to negligence, as complications can arise without any mistake being made. However, avoidable injury can arise if in the medical care received falls below an acceptable standard and if errors are made.
