Contact Our Team











We all understand that any kind of surgical procedure involves risk. However, when safeguards are not properly implemented, the result can leave you with life-changing injuries.

Our team of dedicated surgical negligence solicitors understand the devastating effect these kinds of injury can have, and will work with you to obtain compensation which can be used to make life a little easier.

Negligent surgery can result in:

  • Nerve damage or injury to internal organs
  • Retention of surgical instruments and swabs
  • A longer period of recovery due to complications and unexpected consequences
  • Psychological trauma following awareness and pain during an anaesthetised procedure
  • Infection

FRANK HAD A RIGHT HIP REPLACEMENT BUT SUFFERED ONGOING PROBLEMS AND IN 2012 WAS TOLD THAT HE NEEDED HIP REVISION SURGERY.

Frank’s Story

 

We were instructed by Frank after he had a right hip replacement but suffered ongoing problems, and was then told that he needed hip revision surgery.

The surgeon failed to remove the cement restrictor present from the earlier operation, and this resulted in the reamer (the device being used to create a new track for the new hip) being diverted and coming out the side of the femur. This led to the new hip replacement not being positioned correctly but this was not realised until after the operation. Further surgery was then considered too risky.

 

How did we help Frank?

 

Frank was left at greater risk of femoral fracture and suffers from significantly reduced mobility (worse than prior to the operation). He has weakness in the leg and the leg has, on occasions, given way. He requires a walking aid outside of the house. He can only drive short distances and has difficulty getting in and out of the car. We were able to negotiate a settlement of £60,000 for Frank.
