Injuries relating to the ears, nose and throat can be fairly common, and due to the heavy workload many doctors and nurses in these departments have, and the various pressures they face, mistakes can be made. While ear, nose and throat (ENT) claims may be less common than other types of negligence claims, people are entitled to pursue compensation if they have been given sub-standard care and have suffered as a consequence.

It has been known for errors to be made during ENT surgery, which can have serious consequences for the patient involved. If you or someone you know has suffered in such a way, or if you feel you have received poor treatment while in the care of a medical professional, speak to us today. Do so by giving us a ring on 0161 928 3848, or let us get in touch with you by completing the online enquiry form on this page.

 

We are a proactive and forward-looking law firm that firmly believes strong communication is key to both a successful case and for ensuring clients are happy with the service they receive.

 

Conditions affecting ENT

There are various conditions that can affect the ENT and require medical assistance to help treat them. Some of these will require surgery, and so the dangers of something going wrong can be elevated. Conditions include:

  • Deafness
  • Ear infections
  • Tinnitus
  • Tonsil surgery
  • Nasal polyps
  • Grommets

One danger of operating around the face and throat area is that of facial nerve damage. Although this type of damage can be caused as a direct consequence of the operation itself, it can also be down to mistakes made by the medical professional carrying out the procedure. Another danger is that damage may be caused to the nerves connected to the vocal chords. This can have a significant impact on some of the senses we often take for granted, such as speech, sight and our ability to hear.
