Implant Negligence Claims
Having a foreign item surgically placed in your body is not without risk. However, with skilful insertion and the correct care, there is no reason it should be anything other than a success. Whether done for medical or cosmetic reasons, if you believe you have experienced illness or injury due to implant negligence, The Medical Negligence Experts can help.
What is Implant Negligence?
Implant negligence can occur before, during, or after inserting the implant. When it happens, the results can be long-lasting both physically and emotionally.
Implant surgery can relate to:
- Breast implants.
- Dental implants.
- Hip, knee, or other prosthetic implants.
- Contraceptive implants.
Examples of where compensation claims have been made successfully for damages caused by implant negligence include:
- Failure to explain risks associated with the implant, and obtain informed consent.
- Using the incorrect type of implant.
- Errors during the implant surgery.
- Failure to place the implant in the correct position.
- Failure to detect and treat a post-surgical infection.
Some implant negligence can be corrected with further surgery, while others leave patients forever carrying a reminder of the neglect they have suffered. Compensation payments factor into account aspects such as loss of earnings if your recovery time is longer due to negligence, or you need to take time off work for corrective surgery or treatment. Compensation can also include psychiatric damages, for example, if a person’s looks are altered dramatically as the result of failed cosmetic surgery.
