£150,000 Compensation After Nerve Damage Caused in Operation

02 January 2011

Upon completion of a hernia operation our client was aware that something was not quite right and suspected that he had suffered a nerve injury whilst being operated on.  He eventually underwent further surgery to identify what was still causing him pain.  It was discovered that a stitch had been placed around a nerve. Expert opinions confirmed that it had been incorrect to place a stitch around the nerve.  The defendant admitted liability and after negotiations with our expert clinical negligence solicitors our client was awarded £150,000 in compensation.
