Claiming surgery compensation
Nerve damage, wrong blood transfusion, bad eye surgery, or incorrect spinal surgery are the type of medical cases that enter the attention of our specialists. Unfortunately, there are situations in which mistakes are made during a surgical intervention. Doctors or medical professionals might not respect the clinical standards and the correct steps involved in the surgery. Foreign objects left in the body, dealing with a wrong intervention, or developing infection due to poor hygiene might happen at a certain time. Such mistakes are in most cases life-changing, and patients are entitled to claim compensations.
