How to Make a Hysterectomy Complication Claim
Complications from hysterectomies can result in lasting medical consequences, as well as significant emotional distress. When this occurs as a result of clinical negligence, it is vital to seek expert legal advice on a potential compensation claim, as this can deliver a significant improvement to your quality of life.
Compensation can help to cover the cost of medical expenses and lost earnings, and in many cases can make life more comfortable, thereby easing the trauma of suffering medical negligence.
The team at JMW will help you build the strongest possible legal case by consulting independent medical experts to obtain evidence that you were the victim of negligent care. We will use this to settle your claim at the earliest opportunity to help you to move on with your life.
The amount of compensation you will be awarded can vary depending on the severity of your complications. In one case handled by JMW, a 46-year-old woman received £620,000 in compensation after a botched hysterectomy resulted in PTSD and bowel damage, meaning she required a temporary colostomy.
What is a hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy is a major surgical procedure in which a woman's uterus is removed. It is used to address health problems affecting the female reproductive system, including:
- Heavy periods
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Cancer of the ovaries, uterus, cervix and fallopian tubes, as well as non-cancerous tumours (fibroids)
There are various types of hysterectomy that remove varying amounts of the reproductive system, depending on the medical needs of the patient. Although hysterectomies are fairly common, they are invasive procedures with long recovery periods and an element of risk.
What are the most common hysterectomy complications?
As with any medical procedure, a hysterectomy can sometimes lead to complications. These can include:
If any of these complications arise, it is vital that the injury is identified and treated appropriately before it causes further issues for the patient. When this fails to happen as a result of medical negligence, it can lead to serious long-term health consequences, and it may be possible for the patient to make a claim for compensation.
