Consent issues and surgery
The following is an examples of a real cases involving complications of surgery:
Our Director, Caroline Moore, is presently handling a £1M claim relating to failures in pre-operative surgical blood screening, surgical error as well as substandard post-operative care. A catalogue of alleged errors before, during and after surgery led to bleeding into the surgical cavity in the chest, cardiac tamponade (pressure on the heart), heart attack, brain damage and tragically, a low awareness persistent vegetative state (PVS) for a 2 year period before death.
Why bring a case for negligent care related to surgery?
A patient, not happy about their care, may understandably wish to bring a medical negligence claim for compensation. They may also want to try and prevent mistakes happening to other cancer patients in the future.
There can be many good reasons for asking Medical Lawyers whether you should bring a case for compensation. You, or a loved one, may feel that:
- Surgery has gone wrong and the Surgical or Nursing team have not taken your complaints seriously.
- The wrong procedure was done or you did not give consent to all that was done.
- Appointments for surgery kept being cancelled and rearranged.
- Delayed surgery has meant that more extensive surgery was needed.
- Surgery done too late has prolonged a recovery.
- Late surgery has taken away any chance of a cure.
- You need help with an Inquest into a death after surgery.
We often take on medical negligence cases for families after they have lost their relative after surgery. We represent the family, including the children of the family, in such circumstances and can assist with Inquests into a death.
Complications with surgery can have devastating effects not just on the patient, but their loved ones, who may be reliant on them financially, as well as emotionally.
