Pursuing delayed operation claims

Pursuing delayed operation claims for compensation is about damages for any further pain, suffering and loss of amenity or complications that have arisen from incidents of this nature. Whilst there can be circumstances in which procedures may be delayed that cause no negative impact on the patient, or where delays cannot be helped, there are also situations where it could be a major problem. It is in those scenarios that people could be eligible to pursue personal injury compensation where we may be able to represent a victim of negligence on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Typically, many delayed operation claims for compensation arise from an incorrect diagnosis or incorrect course of treatment being issued. If a misdiagnosis has been made, it may be the case that it has not been identified that operations are required. This could lead to a patient suffering for longer when it was completely unnecessary to do so. In terms of a claim for personal injury, that is what you could pursue compensation for – i.e., further suffering and loss. In other cases, as referenced above, it could come down to treatments; perhaps where a course of treatment has not been engaged quickly enough that would have resulted in the need for an operation thereafter.

However it has happened, if you have been the victim of negligence, that is when you could be eligible to pursue a medical injury compensation case.

Assessing the claim and No Win, No Fee representation

There are some circumstances where delays are completely unforeseeable and are not necessarily an issue related to negligence. However, delayed operation claims that arise from negligence will usually be the ones that can succeed. What you need to do is instruct Specialist Medical Negligence Lawyers and obtain the evidence required to prove that you have been the victim of negligence.

It often comes down to instructing an independent medical consultant who can produce a report for us based on seeing you and looking at your medical records. They can then provide their informed opinion as to whether the delays have been the result of negligence or not. If they consider that they were, that can be the key evidence to succeed with a case.

That part of the claim comes much later down the line, so what we need to do at the start is to assess a case based on our professional opinion about whether you have been the victim of negligence or not. We can do this by speaking to you and also asking you to obtain your medical records and pass them to us so that we can have a look at them to make an informed decision.

If we believe that there is a potential negligence claim, that is when we can represent you for a legal case on a No Win, No Fee basis.
