Surgery will usually only be performed if it is necessary and will be either elective or emergency. In both cases, either your or your next of kin will have had the operation and its risks explained to you and you will have consented to the treatment.
However, what if you receive substandard or poor treatment whilst on the operating table resulting in pain and suffering which was not such that you consented to? What if established guidelines were not followed causing a mistake to be made resulting in physical and / or psychological consequences that could have been avoided?
If this has happened to you or a loved one, Butcher & Barlow can assist you in claiming compensation which could give you access to private care and support, providing you with the best chances of recovery. By gathering evidence and seeking expert opinion, we will seek to establish your case, supporting you through and beyond your claim.
We have dealt with many claims involving:
- Anaesthetic treatment
- Gynaecology surgery
- Spinal surgery
- Cosmetic surgery
Subject to the circumstances of the claim, we may be able to act for you on a no win, no fee basis, meaning there is no financial risk to you.
