Wixted & Co secure £25,000 after an error in surgery caused by clinical negligence.
Mr C underwent surgery to remove a lipoma, a non-cancerous fatty lump of tissue, from his neck. During the course of the surgery, the surgeon accidentally severed a nerve in the patient’s neck.
As a result, Mr C was unable to lift his arm fully and experienced a lack of sensation in his neck and shoulder. He pursued a claim for clinical negligence with us and received a settlement of over £25,000.
