A surgeon operating on the wrong body location is extremely rare, however there are cases every year which have included medical staff accidentally removing the wrong body part, or even working on a different patient altogether.
The results of surgery on the wrong body part can be a particularly devastating and traumatic experience for the patient involved, and will often lead to further surgery. When it does happen, it is an inexcusable mistake and could be a result of poor pre-operative procedures.
Wrong site surgery is a ‘Never Event’, this means that there is never an excuse and such an incident will usually result in a claim being made against the person or institution responsible.

Our experienced solicitors will strive to get you the maximum compensation available and will talk you through each stage of the compensation claim process.
