Compensation for childbirth brain injuries

In childbirth, both the safety of the mother and the baby are at stake. Fortunately, modern medicine means that giving birth is much safer than it used to be. However, sometimes, in cases where severe mistakes are made, the baby can suffer childbirth brain injuries. In fact, when babies suffer trauma to their heads at this early stage in their development, the effects can last for the rest of their lives.

Where the long-lasting implications of a brain injury have been caused by medical negligence, victims may be able to claim compensation.

As specialist injury lawyers, we understand the injustice that you may feel if your child’s life has been vastly altered due to medical mistakes. We believe that you have every right to feel this way, which is why we will support you every step of the way to make sure you receive the legal support that you and your loved ones deserve.

Paraplegia and paralysis compensation

In some of the worst injuries at work or in other accident events, the injury can be so severe that it causes long-lasting and permanent paralysis. Such conditions can cause irrevocable changes to the affected person’s life, significantly restricting their mobility and their ability to perform everyday tasks. While the extent of the paralysis can vary from person to person, anyone affected may be able to claim paraplegia and paralysis compensation for the harm caused.

As one of the more serious conditions we handle as personal injury lawyers, we understand how daunting it can be to begin a paraplegia or paralysis compensation claim. Whether claiming for yourself or on behalf of a family member, we can handle a case like this with the sensitivity that is merited, as we do for all our clients.

We aim to make the claim process smooth and stress-free, whilst we work hard to recover the most compensation we can possibly can for the injured person.

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.

Breast surgeon Ian Paterson – hundreds of potential victims yet to be contacted

doctor talking to female patient

Despite the fact a year has passed since the independent review into breast surgeon Ian Paterson and his treatment of patients, it is understood that hundreds of his former patients have yet to be contacted in the ongoing patient recall. It may be that approximately 6,500 of Paterson’s patients have been contacted, but a total of 11,000 may still need to be reviewed.

Paterson is currently serving a 20-year sentence after being convicted of wounding with intent. His unnecessary practices, such as mastectomy procedures that were not required, were not only dangerous, but also incredibly traumatic for the victims, leaving them with physical and mental scars.

We believe that it is not only Paterson who should be held accountable – the hospitals in which he worked in have a lot to answer for too. It is shocking that such treatments completely bypassed hospital management, and it suggests that systematic failings allowed Ian Paterson to get away with his harmful actions. As such, we believe that there are many of Paterson’s patients who may still be able to make a medical negligence claim. If you have been contacted by the hospital involved, or if you believe you have been affected, do not hesitate to contact us for advice on your potential claim.

Claiming for a serious injury from a fall

roof falls

We all suffer from small trips and falls over the course of our lives. In some cases, the consequences of a serious injury from a fall can be devastating.

A fall can induce pain and/or reduced mobility in any number of body parts, and the effects do not stop at physical damage. They can often provoke long-term mental health struggles as a result of the harm a serious injury can cause to your quality of life. While such incidents may not be reversible, compensation claims can often help to mitigate the impact on a victim’s life, providing recompense for the daily difficulties they now have to face.

A serious injury from a fall can arise in all manner of situations and environments, even in those where the risk is not overt. It is important to equip everyone with information regarding the actions they can take in the aftermath of such an unfortunate event.

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.
