If during gastric band surgery the band is put on the wrong part of the stomach, or at the wrong angle or the band slips. In the event that this occurs, restricted food input or complete blockage can result. Emergency corrective surgery is required. If not, sepsis can occur. A failure to staple properly during gastric bypass surgery can cause leakage. Such a failure represents substandard treatment and you may be able to seek compensation if this has happened. Failure to promptly diagnose that a leak has occurred can also give rise to a medical negligence claim. If an incorrect bypass procedure has been performed, it may be possible to claim for compensation.
As with all claims for personal injury compensation there are time limits within which a claim must be lodged with the court. For accident claims, court proceedings must be started within three years from the date of your accident.
In the event that court proceedings are not started within three years from the relevant date, the negligent party may be able to escape paying compensation on the basis that your claim is out of time.
