Negligent Surgery

Negligent Surgery

Common mistakes made by surgeons during a procedure can leave physically and mental scars.  Bell Lax have successfully recovered compensation for our clients who have suffered through mistakes made during surgery.  Although all surgical procedures carry risks, lack of care taken by the surgical team can lead to painful and long lasting issues.

We have acted for clients who have :-

  • Had their bowel nicked by a surgical instrument during the procedure leading to nercotising fasciitis (Flesh eating disease)
  • Had a surgical swab left inside their body following an episiotomy repair which lead to a very bad infection.
  • During a transanal haemorrhoid artery ligation procedure for haemorrhoids, the surgeon chose to perform a stapled haemorrhoidopexy without consent.  Our client was left with incontinence.  Our client recovered £90,000 in compensation.
  • A surgeon failed to correctly apply a Filshie clip during sterilisation leading to our clients unplanned pregnancy, and she suffered a miscarriage.
  • A Surgeon failed to remove a uretal sent following surgery, leading to repeated urinary tract infections and the need for a second operation.
  • Another client tragically had her ovaries removed without consent during an operation.
  • Another client has been left paralysed following surgery.

Injuries suffered through the negligence of surgeons are most often:-

  • Necrotising fasciitis (Flesh eating disease)
  • Nerve Damage
  • Heart Attacks
  • Strokes
  • Infections from surgical instruments or swabs that have not been removed
  • Failure to spot "nicks" to major organs during surgery, leading to painful infections
  • Full or partial paralysis
