Hysterectomy

It's important that you choose a medical negligence lawyer who has the experience and knowledge to deal with your compensation claim effectively.

Whether it be through your own choice, a doctor’s recommendation or a medical necessity, a hysterectomy is not an operation to take lightly. In situations like cancer prevention cases due to family history, it is considered the best course of action in order to remove the risk of certain types of cancer all together and is preferable to more common post-diagnosis treatments.

When it comes to a hysterectomy it can often be a complicated operation, mainly due to the location and nature of the surgery, as a result any negligence in this area could lead to serious medical consequences. If you have suffered from negligence in this way then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.

WHO CAN I CLAIM AGAINST FOR A FAILED HYSTERECTOMY?

When it comes to claiming for a failed hysterectomy you are eligible to make a claim against the operating surgeon if you can prove that they have been negligent towards you. This negligence could come in the form of a failed anaesthetic, damage which may have been done to the surrounding tissue during surgery, infections, or any other associated which may have occurred as a result of their negligence.
