Internal injuries can be caused by a failure of our bodies or by actions of others. Sometimes the serious consequences of internal injuries are avoidable. Timely diagnosis and treatment can prevent a minor but serious problem becoming catastrophic. Diagnosis of an aortic aneurism and proper management can avoid premature and untimely death. A failure to do so may be negligent.
Similarly, whilst some surgical complications are a recognised risk of the procedure, an undiagnosed bile duct leak following surgery leading to severe peritonitis may result in a successful claim for compensation.
We have dealt with many different circumstances where medical negligence has led to an internal injury being more severe than it ought to have been. We are experts in this field and recognise the implications that such an injury can have on you and your family. We will deal with any claim in a supportive and sensitive way.
