Surgical Negligence Claims & Compensation
Despite the standard of surgery in Ireland being very high and the fact that there are certain risks associated with it, surgery can go wrong. When it does, it can result in a patient being injured or even dying.
What is surgical negligence?
Before performing any surgery, all surgeons must have the patient’s agreement to have the surgery done except in emergency situations. In order for consent to be valid, a patient must be advised of and understand all the known associated risks and possible adverse outcomes before agreeing to undergo the procedure. A surgical negligence claim may arise in circumstances where a patient has undergone a surgical procedure without being fully informed of the risks associated with the surgery.
The most frequent causes of claims for surgical errors are a lack of informed consent, misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis resulting in delayed surgery, inadvertent lacerations of adjacent anatomy or organs during the procedure, failure to recognise post-operative bleeding and/or poor post-operative care.
