Surgical negligence case study
This is a real life case study of one of our clients who had to undergo a second operation as a result of his surgeon’s negligence.
Our client went into hospital for routine surgery to remove a large lipoma (which is a fat deposit under the skin) from his arm.
Despite the lump being obvious and easy to both see and feel, the surgeon failed to find it and no feasible explanation was given for that failure.
Our client therefore had to undergo the stress of a further surgical operation to solve the problem, something which should not have been necessary had the surgeon got it right first time.
With our help, he made a surgical negligence claim, receiving compensation for having to ‘go under the knife’ twice, instead of once. The claim was pursued on a No Win, No Fee basis.
