Compensation for mistakes leading to a loss of sensation and/or taste
In general, doctors and surgeons are highly trained medical professionals and as such they provide us with a great standard of medical treatment. If you are about to undergo surgery then it can be an incredibly stressful situation for any individual and in most situations you are just hoping that the surgery is performed quickly and that it’s performed well – but unfortunately this doesn’t always happen and mistakes during surgery can lead to long term health problems.
There is always the risk in surgery that mistakes can happen and if this is the case then you could be left without a sensation in a part of your body. Normally this type of loss occurs as the result of nerves being cut or damaged during surgery and if you are the victim of this then you may consider a claim for compensation.
WHO CAN I CLAIM AGAINST FOR MISTAKES OF THIS TYPE?
In general any injuries which occur during surgery will be the direct responsibility of a surgeon, or perhaps a surgical assistant. Your surgeon is responsible for performing their role in the most professional way that they can, and if you feel that they have been careless throughout your surgery then you may consider making a compensation claim against them to recoup any financial losses that you have made.
WHAT INJURIES MIGHT I SUSTAIN FROM THIS TYPE OF NEGLIGENCE?
If you have been the victim of failed surgery then there are a number of potential health problems which you could be left with, these include:
- Loss of sensation in a limb of the body
- Loss of taste
- Loss of the ability to feel
- Loss of movement and response time.
