Anyone ever sued a surgeon/hospital? 17:07 - May 11 with 18382 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.

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.


Go to a solicitor.

Their job is to take the stress away or most of it and get you the best result.

Go to a decent large commercial firm not a claims handling place full of non qualified paralegal staff.

Very few claims go to court and you will need to get a medical report and then your lawyers will negotiate.

If you've nothing useful to add, keep your nose and your ridiculous comments out of it.

That's your best bet.

If he wishes to take action then he should. Society is filled with judgemental people who will react with horror to the mere suggestion but if it was them facing these issues they would be on the phone to a lawyer within the hour.

It's like when someone wins some money and people reply 'give it to charity' knowing damn well they wouldn't if it had been them.

It's more of a moral issue with suing a public service like the NHS. If your genuine quality of life is fine, then I can't see the justification. But if you're fcked for life, or someone died through negligence, then of course.

We shouldn't be encouraging a more litigious society, like the states.

Most NHS bods are angels and go above and beyond for their vocation. Mistakes are made, it happens; the severity of the mistake should determine law suits, not the opportunity to cash in.

What if you go in for a routine op on the consultant's recommendation, then you suffer in pain for years, 10 x worse than you were before, losing your long-term relationship and your home; fundamentally your whole life, and can possibly never work again?

Is it ok then?

Because apparently that can happen.

As others have pointed out, it's not some lovely nurse who gets 'sued', and the authorities are not there to save you if you're left in trouble.

I was trying to make the point here but know it's a long-ish thread:

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.

The individual isn’t liable anyway.

Doesn't that depend on the circumstances? If for instance it was a consultant who was locombing then they require their own indemnity insurance don't they?

Not sure why this thread has reappeared after so long. Anyway, I hope things have worked out as you wanted.

If they haven't, I'm genuinely sorry but if it's any consolation at all, the Voldemort look is very "in" right now.

I think Richard Branson has some expertise in this area.
