Unintentional laceration or perforation

Helping people affected by NHS negligence. Call us today for free impartial advice.

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.

Be sure to seek advice as soon as possible

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. Time limits for bringing a claim will also apply, so if this has happened to you, or a member of your family, be sure to seek advice as soon as possible.

Can I sue the NHS?

Before making a claim it is worth taking note of the following point.

Check that your medical issues are grounds for negligence, and not a simple complaint procedure. Complaints about procedure dissatisfaction, or seeking an apology / admission for lack of care / treatment should go to PALS. Read more about suing the nhs.

When you might have a claim

Injury, continuous pain or loss due to the act of a practitioner or general lack of care at the NHS is an entirely different matter. You might very well have a claim. The duty of care might have been breached meaning the health care professional/s did not provide the expected level of care. If you believe you deserve compensation you may have a medical negligence claim. Read more about how to claim against the NHS here.
