Nerve Damage Following Surgery


We understand how it can be distressing to learn that something has gone wrong with your operation or surgery. This is why Mercury Legal are here to listen to your surgical negligence complaint. If you have suffered after an operation or surgery or if a loved one has died following the actions of a negligent surgeon, then speak to our clinical negligence team on 0800 122 3130. They will be able to give you clear legal advice on your right to claim compensation.

One of the most common forms of surgical negligence is nerve damage. During surgery, surgeons work next to vital nerve endings in the body and as such the slightest mistake can cause significant damage to the nervous system. Such situations are classed as clinical negligence and if you or your loved one has suffered nerve damage as a result of surgery, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Mistakes leading to nerve damage usually happen as a result of improper surgical techniques or medical staff carrying out their particular duty incorrectly. The most common medical mistakes include:

  • Severed nerves
  • Poor surgical equipment leading to nervous inflammation
  • Syringe/needle precautions not being followed, leading to local anaesthetic errors
  • Injuries deriving from taking blood from the arm

All medical staff have a duty of care to every patient they treat and should this duty be breached, the patient will likely be entitled to make a surgical negligence claim. Nerve damage most commonly occurs during hernia surgery, hip and knee replacement surgery and any surgery needed to remove tumours.

If you or your loved one has suffered nerve damage as a result of surgery and you’d like to discuss your legal options, we can help. Give our experienced and knowledgeable clinical negligence solicitors a call today on 0800 122 3130 or contact us online.
