Inter Law – Surgery abroad has personal injury risks claims survey

Surgery abroad has personal injury risks claims survey – 20/03/2017Surgery abroad has seen a rise in claims for personal injury following botched procedures according to a new study from Which?.

The study found that while 57 per cent of respondents were happy with the treatment they recieved, some 18 per cent suffered some form of complication. These included septic tummy tucks and liposuction that left people with stomachs leaking cellulite.

The result has been that many people are resorting to the legal system to claim for negligant and botched work, as travel insurance will not cover you for any planned treatment abroad and any health insurance policy becomes invalid for most work carried outside the EU.

Steve Field, chairman of the Royal College of GPs said: “People should consider the whole treatment experience, from initial planning to the care needed months after. This is particularly challenging with complex surgery, and overseas treatment may not be the right choice in such cases.”

The most popular destinations included France, Germany, Poland, Belgium and Italy. In more recent years, the popularity of South Africa and India has also soared as people combine holidays with their treatment. The most crucial advice is to ensure that the group who provide you with treatment have a UK base, as any legal issue might offer the possibility to use UK courts.
