Examples of ENT medical negligence claims

  • not properly discussing the risks and benefits of the treatment with you or any other treatment options 
  • misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of throat, neck, nose and sinus tumours such as cancer of the larynx, pharynx, nose, sinus and nasopharynx
  • mismanagement of abnormal skin growths in the middle section of the ear (cholesteatomas)
  • mismanagement of ear infections leading to hearing loss
  • misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of hearing problems such as Otosclerosis, leading to deafness
  • dizziness or vertigo (vestibular dysfunction) arising from ototoxicity (damage to the ear as a side effect of medication such as Gentamicin)
  • negligent surgery resulting in:
  • damage to the facial nerve causing facial weakness/paralysis 
  • damage to the skull/eye socket during sinus surgery 
  • loss of smell or taste 
  • vocal cord damage 
  • negligently performed tonsillectomy.

ENT surgery may be performed for the following reasons:

  • Pain experienced in the face
  • Tinnitus (i.e. a persistent ringing in the ears)

  • To treat sleep apnoea (i.e. when your breathing stops and starts whilst you sleep)
  • Rhinoplasty (i.e. a nose job).
