Injuries during surgery can be life changing or even fatal. This includes organ perforation during procedures such as laparoscopic cholecystectomies. In some cases, perforation and damage to surrounding organs is a known complication of certain procedures however there are often cases where the perforation is missed resulting in a delay in repair. In some cases a delay in treating a perforation can lead to severe infection such as peritonitis, which can be fatal if not managed correctly.
The clinical negligence department at Duncan Lewis has experience in dealing with cases such as bile duct injuries, perforation of the uterus during removal of retained products of conception and bowel damage during laparoscopic cholecystectomies.
Our clinical negligence solicitors can advise both NHS patients and private patients who have suffered injury during surgery on how to make a claim for compensation. We would advise you to get in touch as soon as possible to discuss whether you have a potential claim.
