Anyone ever sued a surgeon/hospital? 17:07 - May 11 with 16403 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.

It’s not a question of “sue everyone” it’s about having recourse under the law for compensation of a professional if negligent. Trying your best isn’t a valid defence.

Just wait til something happens to you.


Quite.

Mention the NHS and everyone thinks of Florence treating the wounded in a tent in a field somewhere, doing her best against the odds.

Not some consultant who lives in a large, gated property who has fecked up your life because he recommended a treatment that may not have been best for you, but might best for his bonuses.

Well it looks like a duck, it sounds like a duck. Nope, dunno what it is.

You really should stop worrying about the hospital, surgeon, NHS in all this. I certainly wouldn't look upon this as being an action against the surgeon either - he obviously didn't do anything deliberately, may well have been at the end of a 15 hour shift (for all we know) and under immense pressure, as is typical these days.

In all likelihood, you will be taking action against the NHS trust (presuming it was and NHS hospital and not private) and I'd imagine they'd either have cover for any legal proceedings launched against them or would factor any possible legal actions in their overall finances. Also, the kind of claim you may have is going to be relatively small beer relative to the turnover of a NHS Trust. The East Of England NHS Trust turned over £623m in its 2018/19 accounts.

There is some good advice on here to follow. I'd certainly pursue it.


Time will run from first constructive knowledge or 18th birthday whichever is earlier. You need proper advice from proper specialists on this. The excelkent advice from some fellow calling himself lazy midfielder on page 1 still applies....

Not saying do or don't Rommy, but these legal procedures and potentially court can have a major impact on people in terms of time and stress. You should factor in consideration of whether the negativity of that kind of toll on you (and others) is outweighed by possible positives of going ahead.

You're young, so it'll be different for you than many on here including myself, but I suggest it's something you really need to discuss with your family.

You are the one taking a "snobby attitude" with people with life changing damage that they otherwise will not be able to cope with.

Imagine a young mother, whose child is damaged severely in labour by bad medical practice and has to look after w severely disabled child for the rest of its short life. Are you really saying she should not be compensated to ensure that she has (for instance) suitable accomodation, equipment, respite care etc?

That is a classic type of major clinical negligence case btw.

As someone who has suffered with knackered sinuses for 20 years, its miserable not being able to breath or sleep properly.

Clearly not everything is equivalent though.

Whilst it’s annoying not being able to breathe properly, that isn’t why I’d be suing. It’s the permanent lump of bone on my nose.

Not forgetting I had to have two further surgeries to attempt to fix it. The first operation left me with a collapsed nostril when breathing in too.

Referring to it as ‘a block nose’ is very simplistic Sprucey.

Thanks.

I’ve had two different people trying to contact me about my case today. I haven’t decided what I want to yet though. Hence bumping this thread as I’m in two minds..

On the one hand, I do feel like it’s something that I deserve something for. The lump is an issue.

On the other hand, I’m as happy as I’ve been in years, my mental health is the best it’s been in years and even if I won, it’s only money. For what would be a long and stressful (it seems), scenario.

So I really don’t know yet.

The timescales and stress would depend very much on how obvious it was.

I suspect what you describe wouldnt be entirely straightforward- but that is why you would need proper advice. As I have said- steer towards a good sized firm with proper specialism if you do. Not a dabbler / jack of many trades.

Fighting the NHS is a long process and will take some time commitment on your part. My mother was fighting for about 4 years before being offered a settlement because they left a small foreign object (not Jamie Peters) inside of her during an operation.

If it's any help to you, Rommers, my uncle went for medical compo through work and won £120k for summat to do with his back.

He said he'd sod the money if he didn't have to go through all the rigmarole he had to.

Was pushed from pillar to post up and down the country, being examined by specialist after specialist. Now, I don't know if this was just because it was through his work or what, but for a normal bloke with not a lot of dough, to hear him say he'd forget the money made me think how stressful it might have been.

Again, don't want to sway your opinion, but just relating the only example I know of such a thing.

Good luck whatever you do.

This is very similar to what mother had to go through as well. There were many investigative procedures that at times felt like a bit of an endurance test rather than productive. Her solicitor told me they would feel confident in getting more by going to court, to which we went with the settlement as we knew she wouldn't get much more herself by going to trial, where as the folks at Irwin Mitchell would.

Using your logic, if a doctor misdiagnoses a brain tumour that otherwise would have been found and treated, the family of the deceased who are seriously affected financially should just suck it up? Rather than securing financial security from a government back organisation?

What most people don’t get is that most of the damages in big cases go to care and so on, ie for children born with brain damage because of negligent treatment. How on Earth is it fair or just for a family to have to spend money it doesn’t have to put care in place for a seriously disabled child, just because “no one should be suing the NHS?
