    By clinicalnegligence

Rebecca Callard acted for a 38 year old man, who received £10,000 following an inappropriate procedure to remove a benign tumour from the soft palate of his mouth. Our client underwent a full neck dissection of the tumour, which was established to have been unnecessary as the tumour was already known to be benign and could have therefore been removed in a less invasive manner. This inappropriate procedure meant that skin grafts were taken from our client’s arm and abdomen unnecessarily. Our client was therefore left with scarring to his neck, arm and abdomen which he should have avoided. There was also a subsequent failure to repair an oral fistula which had formed since the original surgery, meaning our client had to undergo a further unnecessary operation.
