Varicose Vein Treatment Compensation

What are Varicose Veins and how are they treated?

Varicose veins are those veins which have over time become enlarged and overfilled with blood. They often bulge and are blueish/red in colour. The most well-known location for these varicose veins is the legs. Varicose Veins is a very common condition, and in most cases do not cause any medical issues. 

If you have complications relating to your Varicose Veins and require them to be removed as a result then you may be able to have surgery on them through the NHS.  Usually, those looking to have them removed for a cosmetic reason turn to the many non-invasive procedures that you can undergo within the private healthcare sector. In this case, the veins are typically treated with a laser, and you usually will be able to go home the same day with no ill-effects. 

How can negligence cause issues after my Varicose Veins treatment?

In most cases, those who undergo treatment for their Varicose Veins do so with no long-term issues at all. There are however occasions when complications may arise either during the procedure or afterwards, and sometimes this is due to the negligence of the person or team carrying out the procedure and post-care.
Examples of issues that may arise include:
•    Scarring
•    Infection
•    Soreness 

These issues are acknowledged as potential risks of undergoing non-invasive treatment for Varicose Veins. However, should your care fall below accepted standards either during the procedure or afterwards and as a result any of these issues are made worse, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation on the grounds of negligence. As in any case of treatment at a private hospital, the claim may be against the surgeon directly as well as or instead of the hospital you contracted with. It is important to produce your contract so that the correct Defendant may be approached.
