Anaesthetic Mistakes Compensation Claims
|One of the most common mistakes in any surgery is overuse of anaesthetic. The anaesthetist can have a major impact on the success or failure of a surgery, and any negligence on their part can cause a wide range of problems. In some cases, the over application of anaesthetics can cause long-term problems of their own or lead to short-term medical issues. Whether you’ve suffered local or general anaesthesia negligence, we are here for you.|
|Up to £307,000|
Minor Surgical Mistakes Compensation Claims
|In some cases, it is possible for surgeons and surgical staff to display negligence which results in minor surgical issues. These could be something as simple as nicking an internal organ without causing serious bleeding. Other minor surgical mistakes can include over-bruising and minor to moderate scarring. Surgery scar compensation depends on the severity of the scar and its location on your body.|
|£1,800 to £50,000|
Moderate Surgical Mistakes Compensation Claims
|Moderate surgical mistakes are rarely life-threatening, but they can cause (or exacerbate) a range of health problems. For example, you could be left with short or long-term pain following the surgery. Some of these moderate surgical mistakes can include minor infections, equipment being left after surgery (requiring further surgery to remove), organs being perforated but repaired during surgery. If you’ve suffered any kind of moderate surgical mistake and you’re looking for surgery compensation, get in touch with Tylers Solicitors today.|
|£50,000 to £127,000.|
Serious / Fatal Surgical Mistakes Compensation Claims
|If you, or a loved one, has suffered due to serious medical negligence, you need to make a claim for compensation. Serious surgical mistakes can lead to long-term health conditions, loss of livelihood and, in some cases, lead to wrongful deaths. Some of the most serious surgical mistakes can include the wrong operation being carried out, or having the wrong limb amputated. It is also possible for internal organs to be damage during surgery, bones to be broken unnecessarily and serious infections to take hold. Whether you’re claiming for yourself, or following surgical negligence on a loved one, Tylers is here for you.|
