How to Make a Contraception Failure Compensation Claim
All forms of contraception carry some risk or failure rate, but when this is the result of medical negligence on the part of the professional carrying out a sterilisation procedure, it may be possible to claim financial compensation for the pain and suffering their mistakes have caused.
We can assist in claims for compensation for issues such as:
- Unwanted pregnancy and its physical and emotional aftereffects
- Side effects of oral contraception
- Complications relating to injectable hormones
- Complications relating to intrauterine devices
JMW can help you to build a strong case to improve your chances of getting the compensation you deserve. Our specialist solicitors will discuss the full details of your case, before gathering evidence of clinical negligence by consulting medical reports and speaking to independent experts.
We will work to obtain interim payments where possible to help pay for any immediate care requirements, and will always aim to settle the claim at the earliest opportunity to help your family move on.
What types of contraception require surgery?
There are various forms of contraception, including condoms and the contraceptive pill, but the main types that require surgical treatment include female sterilisation and vasectomies. Each carries a certain degree of risk, and the dangers are greatly amplified when medical professionals act in a manner that can be deemed negligent.
This is a form of surgery that involves the fallopian tubes, which connect the ovaries to the womb, being sealed or blocked, removing the possibility of the eggs being fertilised. However, medical errors can result in the procedure not being performed correctly, for example, through improper fastening of clips to the fallopian tubes.
A vasectomy involves the tubes that transport a man's sperm from the testicles to the penis being cut and sealed, meaning the semen will no longer contain any sperm. Mistakes can be made during this procedure - for example, when an incorrect structure, such as a ligament, is cut instead of the intended tube - that render it ineffective.
