Claims for an infection after surgery

Although in most cases surgical procedures garner the highest care and responsibility, unfortunately potential accidents can still happen and generally where surgery is involved there is always the risk of health issues arising after treatment. There are a whole host of issues which can arise during surgery spanning from general care and neglect to injuries which are sustained directly as the result of surgery – and each can leave you with potential health issues.

In general if you feel that you have been the victim of an infection after surgery which has been caused through no fault of your own, then you could look to make a claim to cover any costs that you have incurred as a result of this negligence.

What type of infection might I sustain?

You could find that you sustain a number of infections as a result of negligent surgery and the impact that these have on your life will often depend on the type of infection that you sustain. If you sustain a minor infection it could be easily cured by a treatment with antibiotics, on the flip side if you have a more serious infection then you may require further medical treatment and perhaps even further surgery to deal with your injuries.

Where could I consider a claim for compensation?

Compensation claims can be made in any situation where you feel that you have been the victim of negligence. Some common examples of these claims include:

·         Claims for errors made during surgery

·         Claims for the use of unhygienic tools

·         Claims for failed rehabilitation

·         Claims for a failure to administer the appropriate medications

·         Claims for a failure to adequately clean a wound.
