Surgical Negligence Cases

Surgery often forms a crucial part of treatment for a patient but when an error is made it can be detrimental to the patient’s health or life.

Our team at Berwick Solicitors have dealt with many cases involving surgical injuries. The most common type of injuries arising from surgery are nerve damage and infection. Sometimes, the decision to do surgery itself forms the basis of the case, as it becomes clear to the patient following surgery, that surgery was not necessary.

As with all cases of medical negligence, the first step is to obtain a report from a suitable expert witness. The report must say that the injury complained of is directly due to the negligent care provided by the surgeon or their surgical team.

If you have suffered an injury due to surgery and require legal advice you should contact a Solicitor as soon as possible. In Ireland, there is a time limit of two years to bring a legal case. there are preliminary steps which must be undertaken before commencing a case. Due to our expertise, we can offer you the support you need to guide you through the process of a medical negligence case.
