Ian Paterson compensation claims

Surgery compensation claims

The disgraced breast surgeon Ian Paterson is one of the most infamous medical practitioners in the UK. After practicing at public and private hospitals for many years, it was revealed that Paterson had reportedly been performing unnecessary or incomplete breast surgery on many patients. Gradually, more and more of Paterson’s former patients were contacted in relation to the potentially dangerous treatment and surgery they underwent at his hands. Now, it has been reported that a further 5,500 victims could be eligible to engage in the Ian Paterson compensation claims process.

Following a criminal case, Ian Paterson was reportedly found guilty on 17 counts of wounding with intent, plus a further 3 counts of wounding, for which he was sentenced to 20 years. His actions may have harmed thousands of patients, and it is concerning that he was able to get away with such dangerous treatment for so long.

As specialists in personal injury and medical negligence claims, we want to help those who were harmed by Ian Paterson to achieve the justice that they deserve. The traumatic procedures he subjected them to cannot always be reversed, but the hospitals who allowed such a doctor to continue practising can – and must – be held accountable.

Spire Healthcare court case comes to conclusion

doctor

A private healthcare provider has been fined after it was found that it failed to notify patients of potential treatment failures and problems within a reasonable period of time. The Spire Healthcare court case has now led to a fine of £5,000 for the firm, which was also ordered to pay almost £15,000 in court costs.

The care provided by Michael Walsh, a former orthopaedic surgeon, was reviewed within Spire Healthcare in 2017 and later by an orthopaedic consultant in 2018. It has been reported that four affected patients were not made aware of the potentially negligent care until at least several months after the concerns were said to have been raised.

It is concerning that Spire Hospital Leeds delayed giving information to patients for so long, leaving them unaware of the reasons behind the pain they may have been experiencing following potentially harmful procedures. Healthcare organisations should always be transparent when it comes to medical negligence investigations, or they risk worsening the health and wellbeing of affected patients.

Pelvic mesh compensation claims

mesh implants pelvic mesh inquiry

In recent years, concerns about the safety of pelvic mesh implants have been raised after many women began coming forward to report the complications they had suffered. While many women have already come to us to make claims, we believe that there are still many more pelvic mesh compensation claims to be brought on the basis of medical negligence.

Used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, the mesh implants had long been perceived as an essential form of treatment, but now guidelines have been adjusted to ensure they are only used in a minority of cases. Nevertheless, it is unforgivable that pelvic mesh implants were, and to some extent still are, regarded as safe, given that they have caused irreversible damage to the health and well-being of many patients.

We believe these injustices must be accounted for, which is why we encourage anyone who has suffered the effects of mesh implants to come forward for advice on their potential claim.

Making a hernia mesh claim

doctor

In recent years, concerns have been growing surrounding the use of hernia mesh. A worrying number of patients have experienced complications following the implantation of hernia mesh, such that they are suffering from pain and injuries that are often irreversible. However, what many patients may not know is that they may be eligible to make a hernia mesh claim to recover compensation for any harm done to them.

Although there has previously been a pause on the use of pelvic surgical mesh, and the treatment is used less widely than it has been in past, there has not yet been a similar kind of recall for hernia mesh in the UK. Yet, when the worst does occur, the impact on the patient can be devastating.

Our specialist medical negligence lawyers at The Injury Lawyers are here to help those  affected by hernia mesh claim compensation to recover damages for their difficulties.

Essure compensation claims

Surgery compensation claims

Many women are coming forward to make Essure compensation claims after suffering severe complications from the use of an Essure device.

Some women who have had Essure devices implanted, as a form of permanent birth control, have had to undergo further surgeries and treatments to remove the device. In some cases, it has fractured into small pieces inside them and the patient has had to have multiple surgeries to remove the fragments, some resulting in a full hysterectomy.

It has been estimated that 100,000 women in the UK may have had the Essure implant fitted, meaning tens of thousands of women could have suffered serious, lifelong complications as a result of potential clinical negligence and/or a lack of informed consent. We know what a devastating impact this can have on people’s lives and we are here to help you fight to get the justice you deserve by making Essure compensation claims.

You could be eligible to claim clinical negligence compensation arising from the Royal Derby Hospital gynaecologist malpractice investigation.

At the Injury Lawyers, we may be able to represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis. The more women that come forward who have been affected by this, the better – as there can be strength in numbers. A large group of women who may have been subject to the gynaecologist’s alleged malpractice making compensation claims together can allow for a group or multi-party action to form, which can be beneficial for all. In any cases where someone has suffered, that is where they may be eligible to claim.

It is believed that the number of women who could be affected by issues could be around the 272 mark, which has come from the ongoing investigation data so far. If you have not been contacted by the Trust but have gone through a procedure that may form as part of this, and something has gone wrong, you could be eligible to claim.
