Negligent Dental Treatment Claims
Intro content here
Negligent treatment of a femoral fracture suffered by a professional jockey
The patient was a professional jockey who fell from his horse. He suffered a comminuted fracture to his left femur when he was trodden on by a trailing horse.
Surgical Medical Negligence Claims
Spinal injuries occur for a variety of reasons including trauma, botched surgery and missed diagnosis. Whatever the cause, the resultant injuries are usually life changing.
Negligent mastectomy and reconstructive surgery
The patient underwent a mastectomy and breast reconstruction operation described more fully as a DIEP flap operation. Post operatively the patient developed a haematoma.
Negligent breast augmentation surgery
The patient underwent breast augmentation surgery. Contrary to her wishes she was given large implants which were inserted sub muscularly leaving her with great pain and oversized and deformed breasts.
Death of patient from peritonitis following negligent bowel surgery
The patient suffered with pain in his abdomen for around 3 months. A colonoscopy revealed that he was suffering with sub acute intestinal obstruction from an intusuccepting cancer at the splenic flexure and he required emergency surgery.
Negligent hysterectomy causing severe urinary problems
Following a total abdominal hysterectomy the patient developed significant pain and urinary problems. She had frequency of mitruition and copious leaking. After 3 months she was referred back to hospital when detrusor instability was diagnosed following urodynamic studies.
Negligently performed hysterectomy
We were instructed on behalf of MK in relation to her abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo oopthorectomy resulting in damage to her ureter. The claimant had a history of chronic pelvic pain and underwent a number of investigations in 2001.
Poorly Executed Knee Operation
Davies and Partners recently settled a case for Mrs T who brought a claim against the NHS Trust for a poorly executed operation to her right knee.
Operation Performed on Wrong Knee
Mr X was due to undergo an arthroscopy on his left knee at the Defendant’s hospital on 6 April 2010. Although correct procedures were undertaken to identify the knee to be operated on prior to Mr X being taken into theatre, once in theatre, the appropriate checks were not actioned and this resulted in Mr X’s right knee being operated on in error.
