Compensation for incorrectly cut ligaments

Muscles and ligaments are a crucial element of any part of your body – they are responsible for your ability to move with great flexibility and also for your strength in a particular area of your body. Although ligaments may just seem like small connections between your muscles, they do in fact play a rather crucial role in your ability to perform a number of tasks, especially when it comes to sports, and it’s crucial that these areas of your body are kept in good condition.

In some situations you may require surgery on your ligaments to repair any tears which might occur, usually as a result of sport. If you find yourself in this situation then you could be the victim of negligence if your ligaments become further damaged during this surgery and as a result you may consider making a compensation claim.

WHO SHOULD I CONSIDER LAUNCHING A COMPENSATION CLAIM AGAINST?

If you have been injured in this way then you could consider making a claim against anyone who has cut or damage your ligaments during surgery and in most situations this will be your operating surgeon. Although surgeons are highly trained professionals, they are human and can make mistakes. If you do find yourself the victim of this mistake then it could have a profound impact on your health and well-being – you may therefore consider a compensation claim.

WHAT ARE SOME SYMPTOMS THAT I COULD MAKE A CLAIM FOR?

If your ligaments do sustain damage through the negligence of an operating surgeon then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. Some examples of how this could affect you include:

  • Loss of flexibility between joints
  • Loss of strength within joints
  • Loss of ability to move certain limbs or parts of limbs
  • Inability to perform certain sports or even to walk
