Failed surgical procedure

It's important that you choose a medical negligence lawyer who has the experience and knowledge to deal with your compensation claim effectively.

When it comes to dealing with the health of our eyes, catching degenerative and potentially harmful diseases at an early stage is crucial to treating them effectively. One of the main methods of treatment which we may choose to use is eye surgery, and this can be an incredibly difficult and risky task, especially due to the delicate nature of the eye area.

When it comes to eye surgery, this is usually undertaken by a fully trained professional who has many years of experience in the field, but this doesn’t mean that mistakes still can’t be made. Mistakes in this area can lead to serious problems further down the track and you may be eligible to make a compensation claim if your health practitioner has been negligent towards you.

WHO CAN I CLAIM AGAINST FOR A FAILED EYE SURGICAL PROCEDURE?

When it comes to making a claim for a failed surgical procedure, your claim will usually be directed towards either the operating surgeon or a surgical assistant who may have been negligent towards you. If your surgeon has made an error during the surgery which could have been avoided, or they have performed incorrect surgery then you could make a claim. In addition, if a surgical assistant has made a mistake during the surgery you may also be eligible to make a claim against them.

WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF FAILED SURGICAL PROCEDURES?

There are a number of examples of failed surgical procedures that you could claim for and these include:

  • Failed laser eye surgery
  • Cataract surgery
  • Keratoplasty surgery
  • Eye muscle surgery.

ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL COSTS THAT I COULD CLAIM FOR?

  • Additional medical costs – if you have been the victim of a failed surgical procedure then you will likely require an additional surgical procedure to correct any medical problems that have occurred as a result. In this situation you may be eligible to make a compensation claim
  • Pain and suffering – if you are required to undertake further surgery, or you have had surgery which has failed then you may have been put through a great deal of pain and suffering. As a result, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim
  • Loss of income – if you have taken additional time off work or been unable to work as the result of a failed surgical procedure then you could be eligible to claim for any loss of income that you have incurred.
