Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Craven compensation claim after undergoing unnecessary surgery?
When people need to have an operation, it is often required to save their lives or to prevent their symptoms from worsening. If, for example, you’ve suffered from internal bleeding, surgeons may need to perform surgery in order to stem the bleeding and save your life.
Whilst some surgeries are performed on an urgent, emergency basis, most are planned in advance. If, for example, you’ve been experiencing pain due to gallstones, doctors may arrange for you to have your gallbladder removed.
Although surgery is often necessary, it can put a strain on your body and doctors will need to check that you’re fit enough and strong enough to undergo the operation. In some cases, the pre-surgery blood tests may indicate that you’re not quite up to undergoing surgery so your operation may be postponed until a later date.
Although many people dread having any form of surgery, they understand that it may be necessary in order to save their life or to improve their quality of life. Unfortunately, however, some patients may have actually undergone unnecessary operations and medical procedures due to clinical negligence.
If you’ve been mis-diagnosed, or even if something has gone wrong with your medical records, you could be scheduled to undergo surgery that you don’t actually need. In addition to putting your life in danger, this could put you through weeks or months of unnecessary recovery time.
If you’ve undergone surgery and it later comes to light that it was unnecessary, you may want those responsible to be held to account. If so, you could consider making a ‘no win, no fee’ Craven compensation claim against them. By examining your medical records, it should be possible to determine whether or not you were a viable candidate for the surgery and, if you weren’t, it should be fairly easy for you to make your ‘no win, no fee’ Craven compensation claim and obtain compensation.
