Surgical Negligence Claims

A mistake during an operation or procedure can leave you with unnecessary pain and suffering. Surgery and medical care should meet certain clinical standards; however, sometimes mistakes are made, leaving patients in pain and unsure of where to turn.

You could be entitled to compensation if you have undergone an operation or other medical procedure and your healthcare professional made a mistake. Although relatively uncommon, surgical negligence can occur in both straightforward and more complex procedures, and the repercussions can be minor or severe.

If you want to find out if you can make a compensation claim, contact our team for a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss your case. Call 0800 731 7555 or complete the enquiry form to get in touch.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take?

Every case is unique so it’s difficult to give a precise time frame as it depends on a number of factors. If liability is admitted during our investigation into the cause of your injury, the case will be settled significantly quicker than if it’s disputed. Another factor that can speed up a claim is if you return any documentation we send you as soon as possible and respond quickly to any questions we may have.

The extent of your injury also has a huge bearing on your case. Generally, the more serious the injury and the long-term implications of it, the longer it may take to fully calculate your claim’s value. We’re also bound by Civil Procedure rules, which allow the defendant’s solicitors time to investigate the circumstances around your injury before they have to respond to us.

What should I do if I want to make a claim?
Starting your claim is easy; just call us on the number above or fill out the contact form and we’ll call you back.
What's after the event insurance?

In certain circumstances we may recommend that you take out an insurance policy which is known as After the Event Insurance (ATE). After The Event Insurance is insurance which covers the legal costs and expenses involved in litigation.

The fees relating to After The Event insurance can vary and are deductible from the damages awarded should your claim be successful. Further information in respect of After The Event Insurance will be provided in our client care information.

What's a risk assessment?

Upon receipt of your instructions, in relation to your accident claim, we’ll advise what, if any, documentation/information is required from you to enable us to complete the risk assessment.

Assessing the risks involved in litigation is a key element of a Conditional Fee Agreement. It’s a crucial step when trying to determine the likelihood of success in any particular case and will involve consideration of all the available evidence. We’ll complete a risk assessment within two working days of receiving the required documentation/information and advise you of the outcome.

You won’t be charged for us to carry out a risk assessment, but if your claim is successful, we’ll look to recover the costs incurred on your behalf from the negligent third party.
