Ear, nose and throat (ENT) claims

If there has been a delay diagnosing or treating an ear, nose or throat (ENT) condition or you have suffered complications during treatment you may have a claim for compensation.

Starting your claim for ear, nose and throat problems

If you have an ear, nose or throat (ENT) problem, you’ll find that much of the treatment is routine. But as with any surgery, it comes with risks. Mistakes can happen or you may experience a delay in diagnosis, and if anything goes wrong the results can be life changing. If this has happened to you, the important thing to know is that help is at hand.

How we can help you

You’ll want to talk to someone who has the experience and knowledge to help you find out what has gone wrong and what you can do about it.  At Tees, we will explain your legal position in simple terms.

You might be entitled to financial compensation to meet the costs for further treatment and if you require it, specialist equipment and long-term care.

Clear, practical advice 

When you come to us for help, we’ll listen carefully to your story and we’ll ask you what outcome you might want. Then we’ll use our knowledge and experience to look closely at the details of your case and give you clear, honest and realistic advice. We’ll explain your options in plain language and recommend a way forward.

We’ll find out what went wrong

We understand that you’ll probably want to know why things went wrong, and you’ll want to make sure it doesn’t happen to anybody else.   We can help you do that.

Financial compensation

We will tell you if you have a case for compensation – we've been working in medical negligence for years and have won many complex cases.

Every case is unique, but the impact of a medical error can be emotionally and physically devastating. You may be entitled to compensation to cover the cost of corrective treatment, or to provide you and your family financial security for the future, particularly where there are lasting needs. We will help you get the best possible financial settlement.

With you every step of the way

Challenging your medical care can be a tough task, but we’ll be by your side throughout. We’ll guide you at every point in the process, giving you practical legal advice, working quickly and efficiently – and all with the aim of trying to get answers, and helping you secure the right result.

We know this is a hard time for you and your family, so we’ll do everything we can to make it easier.

We've handled many ENT claims and so, our lawyers really do have the practical experience to support you and your family. We're persistent, and we'll fight to get answers for you. Whether you’re looking to secure financial compensation or you just want to understand what happened, you can be confident that we’ll be with you all the way.

We realise that you might still be having treatment, so we'll handle your claim sensitively, with sympathy and understanding. We’ll also work quickly and efficiently so that you can have some peace of mind about a more secure future. Everything we do is geared towards getting you the best possible result.  We’ll explain things in plain English and we’ll always keep you informed of what’s going on.

Don’t worry about costs 

We won’t charge you to assess your case – it’s free.

After that, you can pursue your case in different ways without you having to pay the costs as it proceeds, for example, with insurance or a no-win no-fee agreement. We’ll discuss the options with you once we’ve completed the initial assessment, but if you want to know more now, please get in touch.
