Anyone ever sued a surgeon/hospital? 17:07 - May 11 with 16039 viewsThe_Romford_Blue

Met the new surgeon yesterday for my nose op Saturday and was told that quite often if the bone grows outwards like it did after my second nose op, it will be very likely to happen again.

Well basically the bone grew outwards worse than any case he'd seen apparently and the operation Saturday is free as they acknowledge it was their mistake.

As, apparently, the chances are it'll just happen again, I have a good chanc for a claim against the first surgeon 3 years ago.

If he hadn't screwed it up originally causing my nostril to collapse, he wouldn't have had to rectify it by moving cartilage which then has grown outwards. This surgeon is a specialist but doesn't sound confident it'll work. I'm not gonna have an op every 18 months for the rest of my life obviously.

So does it sound like I have a claim? And who should I contact IF Saturday is as unsuccessful as expected.

You need to speak with a solicitor. Ideally in my view, one who is with a decent sized reputable firm with some genuine specialism in clinical negligence (rather than just an individual claiming that expertise and doing all sorts of other stuff).

Many will offer some sort of initial consultation.

Those with the knowledge on here are unlikely to advise and those who advise on here probably dont have the konwledge.

In very broad terms, the test is whether what was done was not something that a reasonable body of professional opinion would agree with. And that action then caused some damage. Bear in mind the 3 year limitation period (though that may only run from the date of knowledge)

Right. Cheers.

It would surprise me if I don't have a genuine case tbh assuming Saturday isn't a success (which of course is what I'm hoping for)

No, as to do so would've probably resulted in more pain reliving the experience as it was awful enough as it was, yet if they had been following hospital protocol at the time, Yasmin may have had a younger brother who she could actually play with, rather than just coming to take flowers to put up at the cemetery...

In my opinion, this American 'sue everyone' culture makes for a very sad society. I appreciate it doesn't help you, but these things do occasionally happen. Suing someone who is doing their best under extremely challenging and trying situations/circumstances isn't the answer.

Having said all that, it's not me who is affected. Your call.

It seems a stupid thing to even moan about from me after reading Hoppys post, but it was just that due to a mistake, I'll have a permanent lump on my nose due to a c0ck up from the first op.

Usually, there is a three-year time limit for negligence claims.

Although, that runs from the date of discovery of the negligence, so you could argue that you didn't discover it until some time later, e.g. when the bone started to regrow excessively.

You will certainly need qualified legal advice, which this is message is not, as I'm not a personal injury lawyer.

Try this as a starting point: https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/law-and-courts/legal-system/personal-injury/pe

And also consider instructing a barrister directly, instead of via a solicitor. They can also do conditional fee agreements - no win, no fee - and cut out a lot of the admin costs a solicitor charges.

Good luck with the op.

I wouldnt want a barrister doing the day to day stuff- even if they are authorised to do so which most are not.

Frankly, incomp├ętent and dangerous surgeons are a menace and if suing is what it takes to make them change their practice or be removed from practice, then it's all good.

No idea

This one wouldn't be as they aren't doing anything for the breathing. It is basically cosmetic but it's to fix THEIR mistake so is free
