Hospital negligence is categorised into two main types: Surgery or General medicine/Internal medicine. The latter is the branch of medicine that involves the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment by physicians of adults, especially in relation to diseases and conditions of the internal organs.

 

Claims against Hospital

 

You may have been physically or psychologically sustained injuries by treatment through the National Health Service where the standard of practice have not been met.

 

This may include where you may have had an illness or an injury and it was misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all and as a result you have suffered injuries or illnesses.  There are many areas of specialisation in hospital negligence - including:

  • Cancer undiagnosed or misdiagnosed;

  • Undiagnosed fractures/infections; 

  • Incorrect medical prescriptions or x-rays/scans;

  • Death caused by negligent treatment; and

  • Babies death at birth.

 

Surgical and Cosmetic (also known as Plastic Surgery) Errors

 

All surgical procedures carry an element of risk, of which you should have been warned before undergoing surgery; but unfortunately sometimes surgical procedures go wrong, either within the national hospitals or in the private sector because of negligence during or after surgery.  Along with normal surgery, issues can also arise from Cometic Surgery.  These are most common in the following procedures:

  • Breast Augmentation;

  • Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping);

  • Eyelid surgery;

  • Face/neck lift; and

  • Liposuction and Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).

 

We have experienced lawyers to assist you with if you have had a cosmetic surgery and it has gone wrong.   People have cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance and self-confidence, so it is understandably devastating if something goes wrong.  

 

The most common type of cosmetic surgery procedure is breast augmentation, however, cosmetic surgery claims can be made following a variety of procedures, these are commonly: 

 

Dental Negligence

 

If you have received treatment to your teeth and you believe incorrect and substandard treatment has caused you unnecessary pain and suffering, you may be able to claim for compensation, as well as additional costs for further treatment.  These errors could be an incorrect procedure to the root canal, or removal of the incorrect tooth, failing to diagnose and treat tooth decay.   They could also include inadequate crowns, fillings and implants and failing to manage gum disease (periodontal disease).

 

In general you must be careful as the treatment after-surgery is as important as the surgery itself.  Sometimes doctors and nurses make mistakes while patients are recovering from surgery. A common case of negligence is when the health care professional fails to notice that a patient is developing an infection and failing to notice the infection is and can cause further injuries which is far worse than if the infection was treated early.
