We take a great deal of pride not only in our legal expertise, but also in our focus on client care and attention. This enables us to better serve our clients from day one, by getting to know as much about their background and circumstances as possible.

When you first contact the medical negligence team here at Healys about your surgery claim, we will take as much time as necessary to get to know about what has happened to you, your circumstances, and exactly what you hope to achieve by making a surgery claim.

Such claims can often be time consuming and take a considerable length of time to resolve. This is one of the reasons it is important to have expert legal support from the very beginning, which is where Healys comes in.

Making a Surgery Claim

It can often seem an intimidating prospect to commence a surgery claim, as you will have already gone through a great deal of distress as a result of the issues caused. However, because of our vast experience with surgery claims and medical negligence, Healys can support and advise you throughout the process, meaning that you have nothing to worry about. The responsibility for dealing with every aspect of your surgery claim is ours, meaning a weight is taken off your shoulders.

Surgery Negligence Claims experiences
  • Jonathan was able to help the husband of a 50 year old woman claim compensation after the hospital failed to diagnose her cancer. Mrs L attended hospital complaining of pain in her abdomen. She was discharged without further tests but unfortunately she died of thyroid cancer a few months later. Jonathan argued that the chance for a liver biopsy was missed during her visit to hospital and although this would not affect the unfortunate outcome, palliative care could have been arranged to ease Mrs L’s suffering. Jonathan was able to secure Mrs L’s husband a five figure sum in compensation.
  • Jonathan has also helped the family of a 71 year old man claim compensation after a complication in his surgery caused his death. Mr R was suffering from chest pains and was admitted to hospital for tests. He was found to have an issue with his heart and doctors attempted to rectify this with a surgical procedure. Unfortunately during this procedure an air pocket had got into one of his blood vessels which caused Mr R’s death. With expert medical evidence Jonathan was able to secure Mr R’s family £75,000 in compensation.
  • Jonathan helped X get further compensation and access to services to aid in his rehabilitation. X was a subject of sexual abuse from his step father between the ages of 5 and 7. Initial application for compensation was made in 1990 and X was awarded £10,000. After several attempts at his own life, X decided to contact Jonathan to seek further compensation. Jonathan was able to secure X £200,000 in compensation and an overall award of £1,200,000 inclusive of state benefits. More importantly Jonathan then arranged the Special Needs Trust to support X’s rehabilitation.
  • Jonathan helped the parents of Baby B claim compensation after a failure in care during labour resulted in Baby B’s death. Initially the Trust denied they were responsible for Baby B’s death but after negotiations the Trust admitted responsibility and Jonathan was able to negotiate an out of court settlement for Baby B’s parents.

    Gazebos are used by all kinds of organisations when attending events up and down the country. It may not seem that an employer’s duty to assess and minimise workplace risks would extend to tasks such as carrying and assembling gazebos, but a recent case shows that it does. Continue reading »

  • Mother Of Disabled Child Ruled A ‘Primary Victim’ Of Hospital Negligence

    28th November 2018

    In order to succeed in a ‘secondary victim’ claim as a result of clinical negligence it is necessary to establish that the claimant suffered psychiatric illness or injury – as opposed to grief, sorrow, deprivation or the need to provide care for the loved one who has suffered the injury – as a result of witnessing a sudden, shocking event. Given the number of hurdles a claimant has to clear to show that the many tests have been met, there have been very few successful claims to date. Continue reading »
