Claimants engaged in group and multi-party legal actions can be entitled to recover compensation for revision surgery where this is an applicable factor.

As Group Action Specialists (hence our name – The Group Action Lawyers) we have recovered substantial damages to cover this element of a legal case where it has applied in the many group actions that we have launched. Victims of negligence can be entitled to recover such damages as a claim is designed to help them as much as is reasonably possible, so corrective treatment is sometimes a must.

For anyone who needs this factored into a legal case, we may be able to help you now on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Claiming compensation for revision surgery

Anyone engaged in a group or multi-party action could be entitled to claim compensation for revision surgery. The claim could account for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused for the need to have further surgery that should not have been necessary. The case could also account for losses and expenses associated with the need for revision surgery, such as the costs of the treatment privately, and for any losses for things like time off work (lost earnings) or travel and medication costs.

The purpose of a legal case is to try to put you back in a position you could have been had the event never have happened. We cannot always undo the damage they may have been done, nor can we turn back the clocks and avoid the unnecessary suffering. But for those elements, you could be entitled to receive compensation for revision surgery for the pain and suffering endured.

For free, no-obligation advice about this type of case, please do not hesitate to contact the team here now.

Some real examples

We can give you a number of real examples where claimants have been eligible to receive compensation for revision surgery – both for pain and suffering and for associated costs and losses. These include:

  • The PIP Breast Implant Scandal: where claimants have received damages to cover revision surgery for removal and/or replacement of their implants, and/or to refund the costs of their initial procedure.
  • For Pelvic Mesh claims: where women have been able to access private treatment and surgery costs to try to correct the complications as much as possible, including removal of the mesh.
  • Hernia Mesh claims: similar to above where patients have been able to access private surgery.
  • Metal-On-Metal Hip Implants: where victims can be entitled to recover damages for revision surgery, which can be substantial given how invasive this procedure was and how risky it can be.

A recent recall: Advanced Biotics of HiRes Ultra and Ultra 3D cochlear implant devices

In terms of a more recent example of a recall, where revision surgery may be a factor, we have seen the voluntary recall initiated by Advanced Biotics. This relates to their “HiRes Ultra and Ultra 3D cochlear implants”, and has stemmed from a small number of reports in relation to the performance of the devices decreasing.

Advanced Biotics report that the performance decrease could be related to fluid ingress, i.e. body fluids entering into the implant that could interfere with the performance of the device. Advanced Biotics has confirmed that users can continue to use the devices as normal, but there could be the need for revision surgery in the event a device has been affected by this issue.

As such, there could be risks associated with having to have revision surgery to correct a problem that may arise. Again, the company confirms that the incident numbers are small, but as an example of a recent event that could lead to people needing revision surgery, this could be seen as one.
