Weight Loss Surgery Claims

Over recent years, more and more patients have undergone weight loss surgery in the form of gastric banding or stomach bypass operations.

For most, these are operations of last resort after other ways of losing weight have failed, so if they do not go to plan, the consequences can be devastating.

At Lees, we have acted for patients who have suffered from complications due to negligence and have specialist experience in this area.

Our experience in these cases means that we know the right questions to ask. Many cases focus on the following:

  1. Consent – was the patient appropriately advised of the risks and alternatives?
  2. The experience of the surgeon – these are complicated procedures.
  3. The quality of the aftercare.

We also appreciate the complex psychological issues that can crop up in these cases and are sensitive to our clients’ needs and concerns.

Do you think it is a good case?

It is hard to assess the merits of a case fully before we have seen the relevant medical records and, if necessary, seen the reports from independent experts.  Our usual procedure is to consider the facts given to us by the client and then decide whether we are able to take the enquiry any further.  We would then review it again once the medical records and any other documents or reports are to hand, and indeed, will keep the merits of the case under review throughout the case.

How long will it take?

Investigation of a case usually takes between 18m-2yrs, although more complex cases can take longer. Much depends on how quickly the hospitals etc provide the medical records and then on what the waiting list of the experts are like, and whether you need to be seen by more than 1 expert.

What did you think of Lees Solicitors? 

I was kept constantly up to date as soon as information from the Defendant was received,  (rather than have to 'chase' and constantly ring up for news).Fiona Kempand her team treated me as a person and not just another client and it was always with courtesy, respect and friendliness. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lees.
