Here is a brief explanation of what each procedure named above entails:
Amputation Claims and Compensation
In extreme emergencies and circumstances, an amputation is a necessary procedure. However, if the procedure occurs due to clinical negligence (e.g. the wrong limb is removed), or the surgery itself is performed in a way which causes complications (e.g. a vital artery is hit causing massive blood loss), then the patient should consider making a compensation claim for surgical negligence.
Anaesthetic Errors Compensation
It takes faith and trust for patients to allow themselves to go under anaesthesia will being operated on in surgery. However, things can go wrong. If anaesthetic has been badly administered or monitored and this led to suffering, consider making a claim for surgical negligence compensation.
Bile Duct Injury Claims
Although the bile duct itself may not be commonly operated on, it can be a vulnerable area when the liver is being operated on, with serious consequences to health. In this instance, seek some surgical negligence compensation claim advice from Asons.
Brain Injury Claims
If you, or someone close to you, have suffered a brain injury, the long-term, even lifelong, effects can have a devastating effect on quality of life. If medical negligence has been the cause of this catastrophe, then appoint a surgical negligence compensation claims solicitor to fight your corner.
Cardiac Surgery Claims
Cardiac surgery is one of the most delicate and demanding of surgeries and as such, should be performed by highly experienced and skilled medical professionals. If a patient experiences anything less than superb treatment, and is in some way harmed during the surgery, then they should contact Asons to seek surgical negligence compensation claims advice.
Ear, Nose & Throat Compensation
Ear, Nose and Throat surgeries are routine procedures which are not usually connected with life-threatening conditions. If a mistake occurs and a patient receives poor treatment that causes an injury, then that patient should think about making a claim for surgical negligence compensation.
Failed Vasectomy Claims
The objective of a vasectomy is to impede a man’s ability to be fertile. However, this type of operation occasionally fails to meet that objective and a couple might unwittingly find that they are due to become parents, once again. The surgery might fail for one of several reasons that lead to one conclusion: it’s time to seek out surgical negligence compensation claims advice.
Gastroenterology surgery can be lead to painful complications if it is not performed satisfactorily. If this is a situation that reflects your own experience, make a claim for surgical negligence compensation.
General Surgery Claims
General surgeons are expected to be amongst the most experienced and skilled of their profession. They are often the triage surgeons of any department, saving lives with little planning, notice period, information or preparation. These trauma surgeons can however, make errors as easily as any other. If such an error has an effect on your health while you are under their care, make a surgical negligence compensation claim.
Hip Replacement Surgery Compensation
Hip replacements are often necessary surgeries that will improve a patient’s mobility, especially those among an older generation, but they are also delicate surgeries where the procedure can go wrong. In these cases, make a claim for surgical negligence compensation.
Hysterectomies (the removal of a woman’s womb) are regularly performed procedures. Occasionally, complications occur and the procedure does not go as smoothly as planned. If someone is at fault, you could claim compensation for surgical negligence.
Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Claims
Gallbladder problems are common issues that lead to the surgical removal of the gallbladder. NHS surgeons perform this operation frequently, with over 60,000 gallbladder removals performed annually. The potential complications are numerous, and may be grounds for making a claim for surgical negligence compensation.
Laser Eye Surgery Compensation
Laser Eye Surgery, otherwise known as Lasik, Lasek or PRK has become increasingly available and popular. Unfortunately, the risk of damage to the eyes, when this surgery is performed to a less than high standard, is shocking. Appoint a surgical negligence compensation claims solicitor if this has happened to you.
Negligent Bunion Surgery Claims
If a bunion surgery is botched by a surgeon that is operating below their best, it can have an effect on your ability to walk, an action that the fully mobile take for granted and expected to see an improvement to after alterations to the bunion. If bunion surgery complications have been caused by your surgeon’s medical negligence, contact Asons to enquire about claiming compensation for surgical negligence.
Negligent Hernia Surgery Claims
25percent of men and 3percent of women are expected to develop a hernia during their lifetime. Surgery is necessary to treat them, but there is always the chance that a negligent surgeon might make a mistake, leading to you needing a surgical negligence compensation claims solicitor.
Negligent Weight Loss Surgery Compensation Claims
Weight loss surgery is commonly known to lead to complications. If sub-standard surgery is the cause of this then a claim for surgical negligence compensation should be discussed with our medical negligence team.
Orthopaedic Surgery Claims
Orthopaedic surgeons deal with joint, bone and ligament problems and include the likes of knee surgery or hip replacement. A surgical negligence compensation claims solicitor should be your next port of call if such a surgeon has made a serious error that has health consequences for you.
Spinal Cord Injury Claims
Damage to the spinal cord or surrounding nerves can be incredibly serious, leading to permanent reductions in strength, feeling in the limbs and to lower body function.
Spinal Injury Claims
Spinal injuries can vary in seriousness, with the side effects ranging from prolonged pain to complete paralysis in the worst case scenarios. It is one thing for such injuries to occur as part of an accident, and as tragic as such an injury can be, it is even more unfortunate if a spinal injury is caused, or worsened, by a negligent surgical procedure.
Surgical Error Claims
Surgery always carries an element of risk, and a patient gives a surgeon a great deal of trust, becoming incredibly vulnerable in the surgeon’s hands. When negligence causes further pain, that trust has been betrayed and you should claim for surgical negligence compensation.
Surgical Mesh Claims
A shocking number, over 2,600, of mesh and tape operations in the UK are recorded as implant removals, which means that a surgeon accidentally left a mesh within a patient during a prior procedure. Contact Asons Solicitors for surgical negligence compensation claims advice if you recognise these circumstances from your own experience.
Asons Solicitors want to hear from you if you believe you have a legal case against a surgeon, regardless of the type of surgical procedure involved. Our legal experts are keen to hear your case.
Can I Make a Claim for Surgery Compensation?
The effects of medical negligence as it relates to surgery are varied. From pain and discomfort, to loss of a limb, impaired mobility, a disability, or even death. Survivors might have to put their career on hold while they heal and adjust to any physical changes, or be more open to future illnesses. In addition, the emotional anguish from being disappointed with the medical establishment can leave a psychological scar.
Surgical error statistics provided by a BBC documentary in 2013 revealed that since 2009, over 750 patients had suffered due to preventable surgical errors, despite those errors being categorised by the Department of Health as ‘never events’, i.e. incidents so serious that they should never happen.
If you have been injured due to a medical error of this type, we can build a surgery compensation claim. We support our clients as much as possible to make this a smooth process.
