This study examined the characteristics of medical negligence claims in otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) cases in the United Kingdom. Researchers reviewed 65 closed cases that resulted in payouts and found that surgical complications were implicated in 50 of the cases. The most common complaint was failure to recognize or appropriately manage complications.
