Medical or Clinical Negligence Claims
The trust we place in our GPs and Hospitals is like no other trust placed on anyone else in our lives and therefore when something goes wrong that trust is understandably shattered and any future medical treatment becomes a huge worry. So what should you do if something goes wrong?
We pride ourselves of helping victims of such “accidents” who have suffered injury at the hands of the doctors and nurses they placed their trust in. This can happen in the NHS and in the private sector.
Of course any sum of money could never compensate you for the immense harm you have suffered and the loss of trust but by making a claim you can at very least bring a level of awareness of their failing and maybe prevent the same thing happening to someone else.
We deal with all types of Clinical Negligence claims including :-
- Cerebral palsy
- Erbs Palsy or Brachial Plexus Injury
- Other Birth Injuries
- Misdiagnosis of many conditions including
- Head or Brain Injuries (see our specialist page for more information on this)
- Septicaemia or peritonitis
- DVT or pulmonary embolism
- Heart Attacks or Heart congestion
Sometimes however the condition itself can be diagnosed but the treatment of it fails or does not reach the required standard you would have expected or simply that the severity of it has been missed.
We have experience also in dealing with the investigation of surgical procedures that have gone wrong or where equipment being used has failed such as hip replacements or where you have received burns from the diathermy pads used during electrosurgery. It could be as simple as something being left inside you during surgery by mistake. All of these can cause horrendous difficulties and often permanent problems and in some cases can be life threatening. Mistakes made during laparoscopic sometimes called keyhole surgery can also be potentially life threatening too.
DISCUSS YOUR CLAIM WITH OUR EXPERTS.
We aim to ensure all the steps that need to be taken to make a claim are clearly explained to you and you are kept informed of progress at all times.
We will need to go over the circumstances that led to the potential negligence in a great amount of detail at the first interview so that we can properly assess your potential claim. It is always helpful if you ensure you can jot down as much as you can remember including names of doctors and dates before you come to see us. We will need to see your home contents/buildings policy or details of any union you belong to so that we can check whether they would be likely to cover the cost of your claim. It is important to us that you receive a true “no win no fee” service from us so that you receive every penny that is due to you.
When you have a claim for treatment provided privately and you have paid for that service then you have a contract with the consultant and hospital in questions so if that treatment is not successfully completed or in some way the contract fails completely or fails to reach an acceptable standard they will have breached that contract and you will be able to sue them for that breach
You only have 3 years (the limitation) to bring any claim so it is really important that you do not delay.
