Winning compensation for weight loss surgery problems
‘A thorough knowledge of the medical issues makes all the difference’
Weight loss surgery is a major event that will change your life. Unfortunately, things can go wrong and if your operation has not been a success, you need to be sure you have the best help and support on your side.
Sensitive and specialist support for you and your family
Whatever the reason why your weight loss surgery has not gone well, we have the knowledge and the experience to understand the medical issues involved and take care of the legal side of things.
- Help with weight loss surgery problems
There are two main techniques for weight loss surgery: gastric banding and bypass. We understand the risks associated with each one. For instance, gastric band problems include the band not being put on correctly, or at an incorrect angle. Alternatively, if you had a bypass, the joins may have been stapled incorrectly. We have extensive experience of claims for all types of weight loss surgery problems and can help you take steps towards compensation.
- Claiming for compensation
If your weight loss surgery has gone wrong or you have gastric band problems, we can help you make a claim to cover both the pain and suffering the procedure has caused you, and compensation for any costs you’ve incurred. This can include anything from money spent on past and future care, to equipment and further therapy.
- A claim focused on your individual needs
Your case and the extent of the compensation we will seek will depend very much on the severity of the injury and the effect it’s having on your life. We can advise you as to what you can expect, and keep you informed at all stages.
