Hello. Thank you for the question. It is my pleasure to assist you with this today.
Please bear with me as I will be online and off-line from time to time and therefore, may be delayed
getting back to you.
the fact that you may have contacted 2 solicitors who couldn't help really points to the fact that this is not going to be easy.
It will help if I explain how claims in negligence arise.
There needs to be
1. a duty of care
2. the duty of care needs to be breached
3. as a result of the breach there needs to be loss or injury
4. the loss or injury must be as a result of the breach
5. the loss or injury resulting from the breach must be reasonably foreseeable.
In order for there to be a claim in negligence, all 5 heads have to be satisfied.
You are going to have to get a medical expert to confirm that your current health problems are caused by that surgery AND that the surgery was not carried out properly and that is the problem that you face.
before getting solicitors, I would get the medical evidence but please do not think for one moment that it's going to be easy to obtain because it won't. You need an orthopaedic surgeon to confirm that the surgeon should have done something else which would not have led to these problems.
without that, your claim will not go anywhere.
Thank you for letting me assist you with your legal question. I am glad that I was able to help.
I am not certain whether that answers the question for you or not, but I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
It will be my pleasure to help you again either further with this or any future questions you have
