    Claiming compensation for uterine fibroids surgery error


    Claiming compensation for uterine fibroids surgery error

    Uterine fibroids can exist in many women without them even knowing. It is only when they start to generate symptoms that become problematic that the woman may even be aware that something is wrong. Upon examination the fibroids can be discovered and then the most appropriate treatment can be sought. In some cases this can mean having uterine fibroids surgery.

    There are a variety of options that can be sought in terms of treatment. In some cases the fibroids themselves can be removed, preserving the womb so having children is still a possibility. In other cases the best option may be to have a hysterectomy. In any case you would expect to receive the best treatment at every stage of the process. Of course all surgeries both minor and major do involve a certain degree of risk. However it is reasonable to expect uterine fibroids surgery to resolve your problem and not leave you with long-term issues or side effects you were not warned of. This is rare but some women do unfortunately experience it. If this has happened to you it is wise to get some proper advice on what to do.

    Is there a chance of claiming compensation for medical negligence in this area?

    If it could be determined that there is clear evidence that negligence has occurred in your case, you may well have good cause to bring a no win, no fee* compensation claim against those who gave you medical care. However it can be difficult to assess whether this is the case in your situation, and this is why many women affected by a poor outcome from their uterine fibroids surgery decide to seek advice from a professional injury compensation lawyer. This may apply to you as well.
