Ear, Nose and Throat Negligence

At Pryers Solicitors we have a specialist ENT (Ear, nose, throat) team of Solicitors. The team has won many cases on behalf of clients with ENT problems caused by poor treatment.

The claims we bring often arise out of relatively minor procedures such as fitting grommets in children or nose operations such as septoplasty operations. The majority of procedures should be straightforward and pose low risks but the opposite can occur when the procedures are carried out by inexperienced doctors.

Types of Ear, Nose and Throat Procedures

ENT procedures include:

  • Rhinoplasty (nasal surgery)
  • Pinnaplasty (ear surgery)
  • Removal of nasal obstructions
  • Sleep apnoea operations
  • Nasal polyp removal
  • Sinus and ear infections
  • Tonsilitis
  • Facial pain treatment

We have succeeded in cases which include damage to facial nerves causing facial weakness, incorrect treatment of inner ear problems affecting balance and sometimes inducing tinnitus. We also have won cases where there is a tumour there to be seen, but is missed and develops into fully developed cancer. Commonly arising claims relate to FESS (Functional endoscopic sinus surgery) which can cause loss of senses of smell and taste.

If you feel that there has been a mistake made in your ENT treatment, contact Pryers Solicitors who have won cases involving millions of pounds for aggrieved clients. Alternatively, call us on 01904 556600 today.
