Leaving Objects Inside the Body

Advice and Assistance from Cohen Cramer Solicitors

If you have suffered pain and discomfort as a result of a surgeon or clinician leaving a foreign object in your body following surgery then Cohen Cramer Solicitors can help you claim compensation.

This is one of the more common risks when undergoing surgery and can occur even when the primary surgery is a complete success. Regardless of the success of the surgery, leaving a foreign object in your body is negligent, and you can make a claim.

The most common objects to be left inside a patient are the smaller items used in surgery, such as a surgical pack, swab or pieces of gauze. In addition it is not unknown for needles, blades, suction tips and even tubes to be left behind.

It is possible that you will suffer no side-effects at all, however this is not always the case and such objects can lead to infection, or give rise to other symptoms such as bleeding and internal damage.

It may be that the error led to a short period of incapacity which required remedial investigation or surgery, and a limited period of absence from work; if this is case we will ensure that you receive all that you deserve and to which you are entitled.

Serious injuries resulting from a surgical error can leave you or a loved one immobile or severely restricted.

There may be a need for adaptations of your home together with a vehicle designed for you and your needs. You may also require around the clock care and assistance. In addition you will need a coordinated team of experts ensuring that you receive rehabilitation, treatment and, as far as is possible, a return to everyday life. All this will cost money so you need the knowledge, experience and advice to make sure you receive adequate compensation. We can help you get the compensation that you need in these circumstances.

We can help you not only claim compensation for all your needs but also establish and manage the non-legal experts and consultants who will assist with your treatment and rehabilitation.

Regardless of the extent of your injuries we can help you, and do all of this on a No Win-No Fee basis so that if, for any reason, your claim fails we will not charge you a penny for the work we have done on your behalf.
