Hysteroscopic Sterilisation Claims
If you or a loved one have experienced complications or injuries as a result of a hysteroscopic sterilization procedure, such as the Essure device or other similar methods, due to medical negligence, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
At P. A Duffy & Co, we represent those affected by medical negligence cases involving hysteroscopic sterilisation in Northern Ireland and Ireland. There are a range of claims that can be brought including:
Device-Related Issues: Many hysteroscopic sterilization claims revolve around allegations that the sterilization device used, like Essure, caused various health problems, including chronic pain, migration of the device, allergic reactions, and other complications. Some individuals may claim that they were not adequately informed about the risks associated with the procedure.
Product Liability: These claims often fall under the category of product liability, where defendants argue that the device was defectively designed or manufactured, or that there were inadequate warnings and instructions provided to patients and healthcare providers.
Medical Negligence: In some cases, claims may involve allegations of medical negligence, where healthcare professionals failed to perform the procedure correctly or did not adequately address complications that arose during or after the procedure.
Compensation: Individuals pursuing hysteroscopic sterilization claims may seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages resulting from their injuries or complications.
How do I claim a hysteroscopic sterilisation medical negligence claim?
If you believe that you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to complications during or after a hysteroscopic sterilisation procedure due to medical negligence or device-related issues, you are advised to speak to a solicitor as soon as possible.
If you ask us to represent you, we will start by taking details of the event and assessing what has happened and who is responsible. We will assemble evidence supporting your claim and contact the relevant health trust to advise them of the claim.
We will ask our medical experts to carry out examinations and write a report about the injuries you or your loved one have suffered. This will form the basis of your case.
If the other side admits liability, we will negotiate with them to agree on the amount of compensation to be paid to you. Where they deny liability or the amount of compensation offered is not sufficient, your case will go to court. We will ensure that you have our support throughout and that you are represented by an expert medical negligence advocate.
How much can I expect to receive from a successful claim?
How much hysteroscopic sterilisation medical negligence compensation you will receive will depend on the severity of your injuries as well as the costs involved in rectifying matters. This will include medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and severity of the injury. Once we have an idea of what has happened to you, we will be able to discuss the amount of money you might expect to receive by way of compensation.
How can I finance my hysteroscopic sterilisation claim?
We know that funding a compensation claim might be a worry, so we offer a range of options.

What is the time limit for bringing a hysteroscopic sterilisation compensation claim?
For an adult, there is a three-year time limit for bringing a medical negligence claim in the UK and a two-year time limit for the Republic of Ireland. This is known as the limitation period. It runs either from the date of the negligent incident or the date that you became aware of the injury you suffered.
In the case of a child, the three-year (UK) and two-year (ROI) time limit runs from the date of their 18th birthday.
