A local customer services advisor who suffered for more than a year because of several surgical errors has been awarded compensation after making a claim with the help of Bartletts Solicitors personal injury team in Chester.
The specialist team at Bartletts Chester worked on this case to help the customer services advisor, who is in her early 50s, secure compensation after developing a vaginal fistula following surgery for a gynaecological issue.
When the hospital tried to fix the vaginal fistula, it made the problem worse and the lady ended up with significant difficulties for 12 months before another consultant was able to resolve it.
The customer services advisor got in touch with the dedicated personal injury lawyers at Bartletts Chester who were able to prove that the original surgeon should not have carried out the second surgery when he did as this was not in accordance with hospital protocol for this type of procedure and in fact made the problem worse for her.
Furthermore, the hospital failed to pick up on the vaginal fistula for months, causing the lady many months of stress and anxiety.
In total, the lady was awarded £35,000 in compensation for her injury plus significant loss of earnings.
Thankfully, the customer services advisor has since made a full recovery.
