Uterine fibroids

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

Uterine fibroids are small and often benign tumours which grow inside the reproductive organs of women and in most cases they are relatively harmless to the individual, but this isn’t always the case. In some situations they can start to cause difficulty to the victim especially during pregnancy and other reproductive activities and as a result a doctor or GP may decide a surgical procedure is required to remove them and therefore remove the discomfort.

Unfortunately as with any type of surgery there are risks involved and due to the delicate nature of this area, the risks involved in this specific surgery are quite high. If you have been left with injuries as the result of negligence during uterine fibroid surgery then you may be eligible to make a claim.

Unfortunately any mistakes in this area can have potentially devastating consequences on your lifestyle, especially if they lead to infertility and other associated injuries. These injuries can be long term and could be a source of constant pain. As a result you may be eligible to claim compensation from your operating surgeon.
