Failure to take appropriate care during anaesthetic process

£3,000

The Facts

Our client underwent a routine surgical procedure under general anaesthetic, during which time he was sedated. The procedure went well and he was discharged from hospital a few days later.

Following surgery, one of his teeth snapped and part of the tooth came off. It appeared that whilst unconscious during surgery his tooth had been damaged during the anaesthetising process. He was diagnosed with a fracture and required a tooth extraction. 

Result

The defendant hospital trust settled out-of-court for £3,000, which paid for the dental work our client needed.
