Claim for divided bicep tendon during surgery.

If you have been harmed during a surgical procedure, call us at Imperium Law to find out if you can claim compensation.

Former soldier Mr Thompson was injured during surgery which led to the end of his army career.

Details of the botched surgery.

He suffered a dislocated left shoulder whilst playing rugby and was operated on by an army surgeon. During the procedure the surgeon accidentally divided his bicep tendon. This led to ongoing shoulder problems which meant he was required to undergo a further operation.

Unfortunately after the second surgery his shoulder did not improve and he had to be medically discharged from the army and was left permanently disabled.

Compensation award.

Mr Thompson decided to make a claim for compensation as his botched surgery had led to the loss of his employment.

A compensation settlement of £190,000 was agreed for his suffering, loss of earnings, loss of the ability to earn and the loss of his future pension.
