The majority of ear, nose and throat (ENT) procedures are fairly straightforward, and most run without any issues or associated risks. However, in few cases, mistakes can happen, and patients can sometimes suffer a considerable injury as a result of negligence on behalf of their surgeon.
Patients who are impacted by negligence during an ENT procedure can suffer from injuries that are both debilitating and disfiguring, which can have a significant impact on the rest of their life.
If you or a loved one have sustained an injury to the ear, nose or throat during this type of procedure, you may be entitled to compensation. At Ramsdens Solicitors, we have gained a great deal of experience in this area, and have dealt with hundreds of cases where individuals have suffered at the hands of a medical professional.

In some instances, such symptoms can be associated with a more serious, underlying issue. However, if you or a loved one have suffered further due to a delay in treatment, or an error was made during your surgery, you could be able to claim compensation.
As with other cases of this nature, ear, nose and throat compensation requires the best expert legal assistance. There is usually a strict time frame of three years following an incident where you can make a claim, therefore, it is incredibly important that you speak to a solicitor as soon as you realise the impact this has had on your life.
At Ramsdens Solicitors, we have a great deal of experience in catering to the needs of individuals who have been impacted as a result of medical negligence. We will work hard to investigate your claim in great detail, ensuring you receive all of the compensation you deserve.
On top of this, our legal specialists are on hand with support and guidance at this incredibly stressful time. Due to our experience, we have seen the impact of such sensitive cases first hand, so we are dedicated to making sure you do not need to endure further stress.
