Negligent Circumcision

We won £3500 for a client who underwent a circumcision that resulted in him having extensive bleeding and a subcutaneous haematoma.

​Mr X required a circumcision whilst under the care of a local Hospital Trust and following the procedure he suffered with extensive bleeding and it was noted that he was suffering with a subcutaneous haematoma.  

Mr X was re-admitted to theatre for re-exploration of the wound under local anaesthetic and given that there was an element of discharge from the tracks of each suture this suggested an underlying clotting defect which it was thought was related to an antiplatelet medicine which reduces the risk of blood clots forming (Clopidogrel). Following his discharge Mr X suffered with extensive bruising for a number of weeks.

Legal proceedings were issued against the Hospital Trust for failing to advise Mr X to stop taking Clopidogrel a number of weeks prior to the procedure being undertaken. Independent expert evidence confirmed that Mr X should have been advised to stop taking Clopidogrel prior to the procedure and had he been advised to do so he would have been able to avoid the re-exploration procedure and the associated bleeding and bruising.

The Hospital Trust agreed to pay Mr X £3500.00 in full and final settlement of his claim and they were also ordered to pay his legal costs.

FAQs
What is medical negligence?
Medical Negligence is when a medical practitioner such as a doctor, nurse, midwife, dentist or an institutional health provider breaches his or its duty of care to you and you are injured as a result of that breach.
How can I find out if medical treatment was negligent?
During the investigations of your clinical negligence claim we will be required to obtain disclosure of all relevant medical records - both hospital and GP - in the manner set out in the pre-action protocols. Once all of the relevant medical records have been received they will be considered on a preliminary basis. They will then be sent to an independent expert nurse who will index and paginate the records to ensure that they are in some semblance of order.
What are the options for funding my case?
We are obliged to provide you with the best costs advice as per the Solicitors Code of Conduct. This means that we must assess your eligibility for the different forms of funding and the best form of funding must be offered to your first.
