Most people have questions when they require an operation involving general anaesthetic, but asking, "I will be asleep during my operation, won't I?" shouldn't need to be one of them.
Unfortunately, our Clinical Negligence department have supported a rising number of clients with their anaesthetic awareness cases. An incident of this kind can be extremely traumatic for the patient involved, and have long-lasting psychological effects.
A claim for compensation does not just have to be for a physical injury. Compensation can also be recovered for psychological injuries, such as this one.
If you have suffered a similar injury, and would like to have a discussion about your potential claim, call us on 01202 315005 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
A hospital has admitted liability after a patient was not properly anaesthetised during her operation.
