Brain Surgery Lawyers in St Helens
Brain surgery can be a life-changing operation and if mistakes are made then the effects of a brain injury can have devastating consequences, affecting the victim’s quality of life and possibly even resulting in death.
Patients Should be Given Full Information and Advice Before Brain Surgery
There is always a chance that damage can be caused to the brain itself during brain surgery. So therefore, unless the brain surgery is an emergency procedure, patients must receive as much advice as possible and be fully counselled about the proposed treatment and all possible alternatives, including taking no action, before having brain surgery. The risks of complications during brain surgery are high and without full information it is not possible to make an informed decision whether to undergo treatment with its associated risks and benefits.
If you believe a medical professional has failed to adequately advise you or your loved one on the risks of having brain surgery then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim. Hattons understand the impact that brain surgery negligence can have not only on the patient, but also on their loved ones and will therefore fight on your behalf to get you the compensation that you deserve.
