How Much Compensation Can I Claim?

There are occasions in our lives when, unfortunately, we have to find medical treatment and care from a range of clinicians including hospitals, doctors, dentists, professionals, opticians and complimentary therapists, to mention but a few.

Most of the time the treatment and health care we get is outstanding, particularly as in the UK we are privileged to have among the best health care services in the world. There are times, however, that the procedures and care we receive may fall short of everything you expect to receive, and things can go drastically wrong, leaving you worse off and perhaps, severely injured. When this happens you might feel that you’re not getting the answers you’re looking for and, consequently, don’t know where to turn for help.

Naturally, you might want to get answers as to what went wrong, or perhaps you are looking for an apology from the treating specialist. You may want to ensure that lessons are learned in patient precautions to ensure that what has happened to you will not happen to anyone else. You could be impacted financially by what has happened and as such need settlement to put you back in the position you would have been, had this never happened.

The Surgeon with the God complex

In a high profile news story this week, a surgeon who allegedly carried out completely unnecessary operations has been convicted of intentionally wounding patients. Ian Paterson, 59, from Altrincham in Greater Manchester has been granted bail and is due to be sentenced late this month. During the 7-week hearing some of the surgeon’s victims gave statements about how Paterson misled them into thinking that they had serious medical issues and carried out operations for conditions that in many cases the patients were not even suffering from. One female victim who underwent surgery by Paterson six times in seven years said that he “…tried every trick in the book to avoid accountability for his disgusting crimes. Mr Paterson charmed and manipulated his patients into trusting him. I for one trusted him with my life.” The victim had been told by Paterson that she had breast cancer and went through extensive surgery to remove the cancer, then a full mastectomy to remove the breast. It was later found that she had not been suffering from breast cancer at all and that he had made up the results so as to continue performing dangerous and unnecessary surgery. As well as working privately at the Little Aston and Parkway Hospitals in the West Midlands, Paterson carried out hundreds of unnecessary operations on NHS patients, costing one NHS Trust around £17.8 million in damages and legal costs. Sometimes even good doctors make mistakes, sometimes crucial pieces of machinery can fail, and sometimes a simple error of judgement on the part of someone treating you can cause significant pain and damage. Fortunately it is very... read more
