Do you need to make a no win no fee Dundee compensation claim after undergoing keyhole surgery?
If you need to have an operation and it’s not urgent, it’s likely that it will be scheduled and you will be given the date in advance. Medical advancements now mean that many routine operations can be carried out by keyhole surgery. This means that a small incision is made on your body and surgeons are able to perform the operation without creating a much larger incision. This type of surgery can prevent the risk of infection and can also make their recovery time much shorter for patients.
Of course, if the operation doesn’t quite go according to plan, surgeons may be required to perform a more extensive operation. They should discuss the possibility of this with you prior to the operation so that you are aware of all the possibilities. If for example, they plan to remove your gallbladder, they may plan to do this by using keyhole surgery. However, if they begin the operation only to find that your symptoms have worsened, they may be forced to perform a more extensive procedure.
Providing you have signed the relevant forms, it’s unlikely that you would be able to make a no win no fee Dundee compensation claim about this alone. However, if a more extensive operation was needed because the surgeon had committed a negligent act, there is a chance that you would be able to obtain compensation by making a no win no fee Dundee compensation claim.

Whilst operations and medical procedures may be routine for experienced medical professionals, they can be extremely daunting for patients and their families.
