    Claiming compensation for ovary removal error


    Claiming compensation for ovary removal error

    The ovaries have an important job to do in a woman’s body. They release eggs that can be fertilised if the woman is trying for a baby. They also release two hormones called oestrogen and progesterone. In some cases, a woman may have to have one or both of her ovaries removed. When this occurs, the surgeon will usually take away the fallopian tube attached to the ovary to be removed as well.

    There are several reasons why a woman might have to have an ovary removed. For example, benign cysts or tumours can develop. Endometriosis can also lead to the eventual removal of one or both ovaries. Cancer is another cause of removal, as is the situation where an ovary can twist, causing pain and other problems to the woman experiencing it.

    Generally speaking, a woman will see her GP with any problems she is experiencing and will then have scans and tests to identify the cause. If the ovary is suspected as the root of the issue, the most appropriate treatment will then be decided upon. It could be removal.

    Is it possible to seek compensation for ovary removal?

    It depends on the individual situation and what has occurred. If medical negligence can be proven and there is firm evidence to support this, there is potentially a chance that a claim for compensation could be lodged against those deemed to be responsible. Needless to say, this is best done under the guidance of a professional injury compensation lawyer. There is a three-year window in which you must launch this type of claim, so the sooner you seek advice, the sooner you can see whether you might be entitled to compensation.
