Can I claim for Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence is when you receive substandard treatment by a medical professional that causes you harm or a substandard surgical or medical outcome.
If any errors have caused you to experience an injury, other form of harm or undesirable results after surgery or medical treatment our lawyers are here to help with a No Win No Fee claim.
We understand that you may well be suffering both mentally and emotionally, in addition to any physical injuries and that no amount of compensation can change what you have endured.
However, by making a claim for any compensation that you are entitled too, it could help to relieve any financial pressures caused by the negligence, such as medical bills or loss of earnings.
The first step is to get in touch with us, and one of our team of medical negligence experts can conduct a free, confidential, no-obligation consultation with you.
How to Make a Claim
Our team of claim experts will talk with you about what happened and listen to your experience so they can see if a claim may be possible.
The information you share with us is always treated confidentially and would only be used by our solicitors in dealing with your enquiry, if your claim is pursued.
To evaluate your claim we will need to know:
- Where and when the surgery, procedure, treatment or diagnosis occurred?
- What injuries or harm you sustained?
- How the surgery, procedure, treatment or diagnosis fell short of the expected standard?
- Whether you require ongoing treatment or rehabilitation?
Once you have started the claim process by talking to our medical negligence solicitors and they have established that a potential claim exists, the next stage is for our panel of solicitors to start gathering the evidence needed for a successful claim.
This means gathering the evidence to assist in proving that medical negligence took place and that you have been harmed in some way as a direct result.
This evidence might include things like medical reports and expert opinions or statements from independent medical professionals, or a medical examination.
If the healthcare provider in question admits responsibility early on during the claim then we may be able to get you interim compensation payments ahead of your final compensation settlement, to help with your rehabilitation, daily living and any medical costs you may be facing.
We will be with you every step of the way to guide you through the process.
What happens when I make a claim?
When you contact us, you’ll speak to one of our legally trained advisors, who will be able to tell you within minutes whether you have a valid claim or not.
If you do wish to proceed with a medical negligence claim, we will then put you in touch with a specialist solicitor who is an expert in your type of claim. Your solicitor will keep in close contact with you throughout your claim and they will be able to explain the process and answer any questions you may have.
We know that making a medical negligence claim can seem daunting, but our solicitors work very hard to ensure that your claim is dealt with diligently and efficiently.
How much will my claim be worth?
As with most other personal injury claims there is no set rule for how much compensation you might receive for an injury abroad, whilst staying at a hotel or holiday resort.
The amount of settlement will depend on the extent of your injuries, how it has impacted your life and how much time a full recovery will take.
However, in addition to damages for any injury, pain and suffering, you may also be able to claim for any loss of earnings as well as for the cost of any medical treatment or rehabilitation that may be required.
Our personal injury solicitors are very experienced in this area, and will aim to get you the maximum compensation available for your injury.
Can I Make A No Win No Fee Claim?
All personal injury abroad and medical negligence abroad cases taken on by our panel of solicitors are handled on a No Win No Fee basis.
This gives you peace of mind means in knowing that you will not have to pay any money up front and there will be no financial risk if your case is unsuccessful.
If your case is successful, you will only be expected to pay a contribution to your solicitor’s fees once the case has been resolved. The costs paid are usually a percentage of the compensation awarded and will always be agreed with you in advance, before your claim proceeds.
