“It was a routine heart operation and it all went wrong…”
Advances in cardiac (heart) surgery mean that some procedures are now routine operations with every chance of a good outcome for the patient.
Heart surgeons can replace heart valves, perform a coronary bypass to repair damaged hearts – and carry out angioplasty procedures (percutaneous coronary intervention) to rectify obstructed arteries, with every expectation that the patient will recover well.
However, despite advances in heart surgery, patients do suffer injury as a result of medical negligence that could have been prevented.
Cardiac/heart surgery claims might involve just one adverse event which happened during surgery – or might be based on more than one factor in a heart patient’s treatment and care.
Duncan Lewis clinical negligence solicitors can advise patients who have suffered further injury as a result of negligent cardiac/heart surgery on how to make a no win no fee compensation claim – including heart surgery claims relating to:
Patients and families making no win no fee cardiac/heart surgery claims have three years from the date of injury or diagnosis of injury in which to claim compensation for negligent heart surgery.
Children who have suffered injury as a result of poor heart surgery care can make a compensation claim up to the age of 21.
