We recently helped our client bring a clinical negligence claim against a hospital regarding the standard of care they received from a surgeon.
Our client suffered from haemorrhoids and, after experiencing pain in their anus during an examination, was told by their doctor that they needed an operation to incise and drain a perianal abscess.
Our client won £15,000 in compensation – click the Claimometer button to start your claim today…
Our client underwent surgery but despite the proposed procedure being listed as incision and drainage of perianal abscess, the surgeon instead carried out an examination under anaesthetic and performed a haemorrhoidectomy, without our client’s consent, and failed to correctly drain the abscess.
Our client had to undergo a second operation under general anaesthetic to drain the perianal abscess, and underwent several unpleasant procedures after suffering ongoing perianal pain.
As a result of the failures, we were able to help our client to successfully make a clinical negligence claim, and recovered the sum of £15,000 by way of compensation.
