If you have had a failed vasectomy and have had to experience the difficulties associate with an unplanned pregnancy despite exercising your right to avoid this peril, then you should contact a specialist personal injury lawyer immediately. Our experts specialise in failed vasectomy cases and will be able to recover the full and fair amount of compensation you deserve expeditiously and cost effectively. Such damages should cover a second vasectomy procedure as well as the problems associated with childbirth including the pain of delivery, the earnings lost through time off work and the funds needed to cover care costs if the child is born disabled.
Causes of failed vasectomy claims
There are two main justifications for a failed vasectomy claim. The first is where the doctor performing the vasectomy makes an error which a competent professional would not make, causing the vasectomy to fail. The second is where the doctor does not tell the patient essential information about the procedure. In particular, failure to tell the patient that they must not have unprotected sex for 4 months (the period it takes for all sperm to be absent from semen) and that they must be tested before having unprotected sex in order to ensure that all sperm has gone. If the doctor does not tell the patient this leading them to impregnate their partner within four months they may find themselves open to compensation claims. If you feel you have a medical negligence compensation claim based on either of these two grounds, you should contact our expert solicitors today who will be able to collect evidence in support of your case based on a thorough investigation.
Where patients have been told about the abstinence period and the vasectomy has still failed, surgical errors will be blamed. Doctors usually perform negligently by not using the fascial interpolation procedure which is almost guaranteed to successfully separate the two end of the vas deferens or by using a less complex procedure and failing to leave a big enough gap between the vas deferens which then reconnect and encourage sperm flow. In other cases doctors cut a ligament, incompetently mistaking is for the vas deferens. No matter what type of medical negligence is to blame, victims deserve to be compensated.
