Compensation for failure to adequately treat an ear injury

Hearing is one of the greatest gifts that we have and whether you have a passion for music or you are simply involved in a role which requires a great deal of communication, it’s crucial that you have a good level of hearing to complete these tasks successfully. As one of the most delicate organs in the body, your ears can easily be damaged if the correct precautions are not taken and if this does happen then it’s crucial that any injuries are treated quickly and safely to prevent any further damage.

Ear surgery is a difficult task, but this is no reason for any negligence to occur during the operation. If you feel that you have been the victim of negligent treatment in this situation, you could look to make a compensation claim to cover any additional costs you have incurred.

WHO MIGHT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS FAILURE TO TREAT AN EAR INJURY?

Any type of ear injury generally requires quite delicate surgery and this will usually be left in the hands of a fully qualified surgeon. This person is responsible for ensuring that your health remains their top priority and for completing your ear surgery to the best of their ability in a safe and effective manner. If you feel that they have failed to do this then you could consider making a compensation claim against them.

IN WHICH SITUATIONS MIGHT I LOOK TO MAKE A CLAIM?

You could consider making a compensation claim in a number of different situations, some common examples of these include:

  • Claims for failed surgery
  • Claims for a failed diagnosis
  • Claims for additional cuts or lacerations during surgery
  • Claims for failure to use adequate surgery techniques
