Delayed corrective treatment and medical negligence claims

Surgery compensation claims

We trust our doctors to do what’s best for us, using their skills and expertise to carry out successful courses of treatment when we are ill or unwell. However, there are, unfortunately, circumstances in which errors can be made and, in certain cases, these errors can constitute a breach of duty on the part of the doctor or a medical professional. On top of this, the situation can be even worse when the patient faces delayed corrective treatment and has to suffer for longer than they should.

Given the ongoing strains on the NHS, which has only worsened during the coronavirus crisis, it is not uncommon for patients to endure treatment delays; this does not make the situation any less worrying or distressing for those affected. This is particularly the case where patients have already suffered medical negligence, as they are facing health complications that should never have arisen.

If you are eligible to pursue a medical negligence claim, we may also be able to take your delayed corrective treatment into account in your claim. Anything that has unjustly had an adverse impact on your health is important to consider and could factor in as part of a legal case.

Royal Derby Hospital gynaecologist investigation – more women may be affected by alleged malpractice

care home negligence

In April 2020, an investigation into a gynaecologist at the Royal Derby Hospital reportedly found that at least eight women had been ‘unnecessarily harmed’ by the consultant. In the wake of further reviews over recent years, the Royal Derby Hospital gynaecologist investigation is now understood to involve some 382 patients who were said to have been under the care of Daniel Hay, which was another 110 women being contacted by the hospital in addition to those who had already been contacted.

Sadly, we are unsurprised to find that the list of potentially affected women has grown  as the investigation goes on, and there is no telling how many more women may be brought into the review of Daniel Hay’s patients. At The Injury Lawyers, we are here to help any women who might have been affected by harmful treatments, as we know how distressing such news must be.

Claiming compensation for a life-changing brain injury

Head and facial injuries

Injuries to the head and brain are some of the most serious conditions we represent claimants for as specialist Injury Lawyers. These injuries can have a long-term and sometimes an irreversible impact on brain function that can significantly affect the injured person’s way of life. If you have suffered a life-changing brain injury, or if you have a loved one who has, you may be able to pursue a compensation claim.

From paralysis to speech impairment, those affected by severe brain injuries are often left with permanent disabilities. Such injuries can be sustained in incidents such as road traffic accidents or workplace injuries where the impact on the victim’s head is significant. Where the injury has been caused primarily due to the negligence of a third party, the injured person could be eligible to recover compensation for the damage caused.

Serious brain injuries can leave those affected, and their loved ones, with a strong sense of injustice. Whilst we cannot reverse the harm done, we can use our legal expertise to help victims and their families receive financial support through these new, life-changing difficulties. You can contact our specialist team for more advice on your potential case.
