Delivering the compensation you deserve.
clinical negligence claims
When a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional makes a mistake – which leads to treatment that falls below the standard expected of a reasonably competent practitioner – the consequences can be very serious.
If you think your treatment was substandard and you suffered injury as a result, then you could be entitled to financial compensation. This may have been due to:
- Failing to carry out a proper examination
- Failing to make the appropriate diagnosis
- Providing the wrong treatment
- Failing to deal with important and concerning symptoms
- A delay in diagnosis or treatment
- The failure of a medical device
Whether they are working in the NHS or private clinics, healthcare professionals have a duty of care to their patients. If you have had to spend time in hospital or undergo more surgery as a result of negligence or mistakes – you may also be entitled to claim for your rehabilitation costs and for any money lost due to taking time off work. To find out more, speak to specialist clinical negligence solicitors.
Our Personal Injury solicitors are here to help and advise you. They can make the necessary investigations, with the assistance of an experienced panel of highly qualified specialist medical experts. We work in conjunction with these experts so that you will know as soon as possible if we can move forward with your claim. You will also have peace of mind that your claim is being fully supported and investigated.
