Nerve Injury Compensation
The use of anaesthesia is a very specialist area and is crucial where an operation is being undertaken. Whilst most operations are free of complications occasionally mistakes are made and these can have very serious consequences for the patient. The administration of the anaesthesia and the monitoring required need considerable skill. Where that level of clinical skill falls short of what is required then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
Claims can be made for a number of areas, including:
• Anaesthetic awareness claims – where you may find yourself awake during an operation
• Badly administered dosage – possibly leading to paralysis
• Incorrect dosage
• Failure to regulate blood pressure correctly which can result in brain damage or strokes
• Brain damage – in surgery this may be as a result of a failure to monitor breathing correctly
• Nerve/spinal cord injuries – where the injection is made into the wrong place damaging nerves or the spinal cord
Often mistakes can be prevented with the use of measures including, ensuring all machinery is in good order and operatives are correctly trained in its use, a full patient history has been taken and the correct pre-medication has been administered.
Most of the time the treatment you receive from health care professionals will be very good. However, on occasion that level of service will fall below what you would expect to receive and where this results in injury then you may be due compensation.
