Surgery is a complex process and mistakes can happen. The unintentional cutting, puncture or laceration of tissue, organs or vessels can have serious effects, including infection, loss of function and other outcomes such as the leakage of bile into the body cavity. These can lead to septic shock, permanent loss of function and even death, either at the time of the operation or some time after the event.

If a medical negligence claim ensues, proving that the underlying cause was a surgical mistake can be difficult and expert medical negligence legal advice is essential.
