Failure to remove glass following an injury to right dominant hand
Smashed glass leads to four operations
Ruth needed to go to hospital at Northwick Park after her right hand was injured by a smashed beer glass. She was referred to the plastic surgery department and underwent surgery to remove the glass. But they failed to remove all of it and she had to undergo three further operations to make sure that it was all removed
Four operations for such a simple procedure seemed wrong to her and Ruth spoke to Medical Accident Group to establish whether a claim against the hospital could be made. We supported and advised her throughout the case, making ourselves available at any time to discuss her concerns; we were very pleased to be able to secure compensation for her.
