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.

The continued dangers of plastic medical mesh implants

doctor

The continued dangers of vaginal and hernia plastic medical mesh implants remain ongoing, yet both are still being used for procedures here in the UK and in other parts of the world.

Despite the known dangers, the thousands of people harmed by mesh devices, and the permanence that some can suffer from, patients are still undergoing these treatments.

Many do not know the severity of the consequences and complications that can arise. Some patients have fallen victim to poor treatment or surgery. Some have received inadequate aftercare and revision treatments. There are plenty of ways people can suffer, and we want to help in the only way that we can – with specialist legal representation.

Hernia mesh legal case for compensation

the nhs may be heading for a summer crisis!

Over the past few years, hernia mesh implants have been at the centre of growing controversy, with many patients telling of the painful and debilitating complications caused by the devices. The scandal is wide-reaching, as tens of thousands of people who have undergone hernia mesh surgery could be confronted with complications. We have been pursuing a hernia mesh legal case for many people over the last few years, and we want to remind those affected that they may still have a chance to claim compensation.

Surgical mesh is one of the most common treatments for hernias, with surgeons using the mesh to hold in displaced tissue. The use of hernia mesh has long been approved by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency), but it has since been suggested that the clinical reviews of the product’s safety are lacking.

We believe it is vital to hold the responsible parties accountable for any harm they may have caused patients, and one way to do this is to bring medical negligence claims. If it is established that your doctor or a healthcare professional breached their duty of care through you being recommending hernia mesh as a treatment, you may be able to recover compensation for any harm caused.

Compensation for being sent home from hospital

care

Whenever we are admitted to hospital, we expect that doctors and nurses will care for us for as long as necessary before discharging us. This means, as much as possible, health professionals must eliminate any risk of their patient’s condition worsening after they are sent home from hospital.

However, a premature discharge from hospital could cause severe consequences for your health and, in some cases, it could amount to medical negligence. If a doctor has not ensured that you are absolutely ready to leave hospital, and your health has been adversely affected, you may have a compensation claim to make.

As specialists in medical negligence claims, we have sadly encountered countless cases of patients being let down by health professionals. Besides their pain and worsened health, many of our clients have also felt betrayed by those who were supposed to protect them. However, by making a compensation claim, you can fight to achieve some form of justice for any harm caused.
