Let us help to explain the process so that you fully understand the choices that are available to you in terms of aiding your recovery and obtaining medical negligence compensation.
Varicose Vein Surgery
Varicose vein surgery is a common surgical procedure and frequently is carried out without any complications. However, sometimes mistakes are made during the surgery that can have a serious detrimental impact on your health. Sometimes the mistake can amount to medical negligence, allowing you to make a claim not only for compensation, but also for any recification surgery that is required.
What Are Varicose Veins?
A varicose vein is caused by a weakening of a vein which allows blood to flow backwards which in turn leads to a build up of blood in the vein. Whereas usually the muscle and vein system ensures that the blood flows around the veins in only one direction, this weakness prevents this from happening. Surgery is not always essential to treat the varicose veins, but if they lead to other complications such as leg ulcers, swelling, pain and discomfort, then surgery may be required.
When Does Varicose Vein Surgery Amount To Medical Negligence?
If the surgery performed is below standard this can amount to medical negligence. Complications of varicose vein surgery can include vessel or nerve damage to the area in question often causing mobility problems after the surgery. If this has happened to you it is vital that you seek legal assistance as soon as possible. You may need further surgery to repair the nerve or vessel damage and you may be entitled to claim medical negligence compensation.
