Sterilisation Failure

The decision to be sterilised is often a very thought out and talked about one – not a decision to be taken lightly. After coming to a firm decision that your child bearing days are now behind you and after going through the very invasive surgery involved in being sterilised, the last thing you expect is for the operation to have failed and to discover you are pregnant with an unplanned chid.

A failed sterilisation claim is, often unlike other medical negligence claims, usually very straightforward as you have your unexpected pregnancy as proof that the operation to sterilise you has failed. This can be a very distressing time for you and your family as you have not been prepared for this life changing event.

How Much Compensation Are You Likely To Be Awarded For Your Failed Sterilisation Claim?

The law states that for an unwanted pregnancy caused by a failed sterilisation you may be entitled to:

  • £15,000 for no longer having the right to determine the size of your family
  • £5,000 for pain and suffering during the labour that you were not expecting to have to endure
  • Compensation for loss of earnings during maternity leave
  • Additional costs of new baby equipment such as prams, cots etc

Our lawyers specialise in failed sterilisation claims and will be able to guide you through the process of making a claim and answer any questions you may have.
