Medical negligence cases are always difficult and always require the help of a specialist compensation and injury Solicitor.
It is said, somewhat satirically, in legal circles that the only straightforward Med Neg cases are those where “the wrong limb has been amputated”
A shocking error similar to the proverbial example happened to John Heron. Mr. Heron was an in-patient at Ayr Hospital to have his diseased kidney removed. After awaking from surgery he was shocked to hear that Consultant Urologist Riza Gurun had removed his healthy kidney by mistake.
Mr Gurun is now under investigation by the General Medical Council for this as well as other lower profile surgical errors.
