Compensation Claims for Surgical Negligence

In the UK millions of surgical procedures are carried out each year in both the NHS and the private sector. In the vast majority of cases the surgery goes to plan, and the patient makes a full and satisfactory recovery.

There are however occasions where the procedure goes wrong as a result of negligence, and in cases like these a surgical negligence compensation claim may be justified.
