Surgery

Appendicitis

We recovered £55,000 for our client whose claim related to negligent care and management of appendicitis. The allegations included a delay and failure to diagnose and treat the appendicitis and a failure to actually remove the infected appendix resulting in significant post operative complications. The Claimant suffered physical and psychological injury and had to undergo unnecessary surgery with resultant scarring.

Compartment Syndrome following bowel surgery

We obtained £100,000 for our client who suffered compartment syndrome following major bowel surgery. his resulted in permanent damage to his leg causing significant pain and disability. Liability was vigorously contested throughout by the Defendant and the extent of our client’s financial losses resulting from the alleged negligence was also hotly disputed. It was, however, possible to negotiate a settlement following the issue of proceedings.
