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.

Leg injury compensation claims

Leg injuries are the subject of some of the most serious injury claims that we deal with, as these injuries can often severely incapacitate the people they affect.

Serious neck injuries – advice from The Injury Lawyers

serious neck injuries

Anyone who has sustained serious neck injuries as a result of another party’s negligence may be eligible to claim compensation for the harm caused to them.

Neck injuries can vary significantly in the nature and severity of the effects, with some victims experiencing temporary movement issues, whereas others with serious trauma may struggle with long-term pain and mobility problems.

Compensation claims take account of the severity of the injury, meaning that those with serious neck injuries could receive a 5 or even 6-figure compensation pay-out (or higher). As specialist personal injury lawyers, we know how to make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve for the suffering you have endured. Read on to find out how we approach a neck injury claim.

dangerous road claims

In the UK, there are thousands of injuries caused by road accidents every year, many of which involve significant pain and suffering for the injured parties.

Road accidents can cause many different kinds of injuries, from bone fractures to whiplash, but we are able to take on claims for serious injuries that you may have suffered, whether you were injured as a driver, biker or as a pedestrian.

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.

Many victims can be reluctant to make a compensation claim, due to the friction that they worry that this may cause with their employer. But it is your legal right, and you should not be treated differently for claiming, and we aim to make the process stress-free and worthwhile. In a recent successful case, we obtained thousands of pounds in damages to compensate our client for a defective scaffold accident that they were involved in at their workplace, and we may be able to help you too.

We take on all kinds of workplace accident claims for clients from all sorts of professions. So, whether you are a builder or a roofer, you could be eligible to claim compensation for an injury if your employer failed to sufficiently prevent workplace hazards.

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.
