What should I do if my paralysis was caused by medical negligence?
If you have suffered paralysis because of mistakes that were made by a medical professional, it is important that there is enough evidence to support your compensation claim. Our solicitors will start to build your case from the moment we start working with you, which will involve obtaining the following:
- Medical evidence - your medical notes and documentation of any prescriptions
- Evidence of expenses - such as loss of earnings, prescription charges and travel costs
- An account of the events as they unfolded
- Witness details, where appropriate
Is there a time limit for making a claim?
The time limit for making a clinical negligence claim is usually three years after the incident occured. However, there are some exceptions to this rule - for example, for cases concerning children. Speaking to a solicitor is the best way of finding out whether or not you are eligible to make a compensation claim for your injuries.
What does compensation cover?
- Modifications to your home and vehicle
- Any earnings you have lost
- Transport and medical expenses
- General damages - compensation for the injury itself
