Medical negligence claims and compensation

Medical negligence claims and compensation

When you put yourself in the hands of a medical professional you expect the best possible treatment and most of the time you get it. But mistakes can happen and medical negligence occurs, sometimes with serious consequences. 

If you have suffered from inadequate treatment or care, we can help. Even if you don’t think you are entitled to compensation, please get it touch. We have a specialist team of dedicated medical negligence solicitors who will give you clear, honest advice and help you understand your options. 

What type of claims can you make? 

There are many ways medical negligence can lead to compensation, some of the most common claims are for:

  • birth injuries caused by mistakes made by medical staff
  • avoidable brain injuries sustained during an operation
  • avoidable delays in diagnosis and treatment
  • misdiagnosis
  • clinical errors and delays in cancer treatment
  • hospital infections, like MRSA
  • wrongly prescribed drugs.

There are lots of other types of medical negligence too, so if your situation isn’t mentioned here do still get in touch. No case is too unusual and we have one of the largest, most experienced teams available to help. 

Why should I claim? 

Claiming compensation can make a huge difference to your life financially and psychologically. All medical professionals have a duty to provide acceptable care and a successful compensation claim ensures those responsible for your care take responsibility for what went wrong. In some cases, this can even mean a change to the law.
