Clinical Negligence Claim Solicitors

Most of us put our health in the hands of medical professionals at various points during our lives, and while the majority of care we receive is of the highest quality, there is always a risk that something could go wrong. If this happens due to poor treatment or human error, it is imperative you are able to make a claim to compensate you for the pain and suffering caused.

What Is Clinical Negligence?

Clinical negligence relates to the care provided by doctors and other healthcare professionals. If the treatment provided by such a professional represents a breach of the legal duty of care that the professional owes to the patient and this results in the patient suffering harm, it may be possible for a claim to be brought against the healthcare professional or their employer.

For a successful claim to be made, we need to show:

  • The healthcare professional owed a duty of care to the patient
  • This duty of care was breached
  • This breach resulted in the patient being caused harm
  • This harm resulted in damages or other losses

What Areas Do We Cover?

We cover all aspects of clinical negligence. For more information about the individual areas and how we can help with these particular types of claim, please see the list below:




























How to Fund Your Claim

There are many different ways to fund your claim, and you can find out more about the various options available to you here

 

Why Making a Claim Is Important

Making a claim is often the only means of putting right the damage that has been caused by the negligence of a medical professional.

By claiming compensation, the victim is not only better able to cope with the injuries they have been left with, they are also compensated for any other financial losses they have suffered as a result of the mistakes made. These losses can be many and varied, and may include money lost due to being unable to work for a period of time or not being able to return to their previous job at all.  

However, making a claim can achieve much more than securing compensation, and there is often more that we can help patients with that they may not realise. For instance, we can help to:

Hold those responsible to account

Patients and families injured by poor medical care often feel very angry and upset about what has happened to them. Bringing a medical negligence claim enables them to do something about their ordeal, with the support of a legal team fighting on their behalf.

Ensure someone says sorry

Sometimes, all a patient or family wants to hear is for someone to say "sorry, we made a mistake". In the course of a claim, we can often secure an apology for the patient or family, and while nothing can turn back the clock, an apology can help with the patient's recovery process.

Raise awareness

Many patients and families wish to raise awareness of what has happened to them by highlighting their case in the media. We can help those who want to speak out by managing all media involvement in their case. It is a brave step to take and can help the client to move on and help to prevent the same thing from happening to others.

Ensure lessons are learned

By bringing wrongdoing to the attention of those responsible via a claim, the subsequent investigation and potential financial implications can help to ensure lessons are learned.

Protect other patients

The bringing of a claim can result in safety being improved and steps taken to prevent the same thing from happening again.
