Death From Surgical Negligence
The death of a family member from surgical negligence can devastate the lives of those affected and often, those left behind just don’t know which way to turn. It will undoubtedly be an incredibly difficult time for you and your family and extremely difficult to come to terms with.
Tragically, although rare, fatal injuries do happen as a result of surgical negligence. We understand that no amount of money will ever compensate for the loss of your loved one, but legally, all surgeons are responsible for the health of their patients and should they fail in this duty then they are acting illegally.
In order to bring a fatal negligence claim, we will need to show that a surgeon or other medical professional acted negligently by failing to provide adequate care and treatment, demonstrating that this failure led to the death of your loved one. Our highly experienced and knowledgeable clinical negligence solicitors understand that you and your loved ones will be going through an incredibly difficult time and act only with the utmost compassion.
If you believe that your loved one has passed away as a result of surgical negligence, please contact our clinical negligence solicitors in confidence so that they can help you set out the legal options available to you without any commitment or cost. Call us on 0800 122 3130 or if you’d prefer, you can ask for a call back when its convenient for you.
