Medical negligence or clinical negligence can arise from a variety of circumstances. In the unfortunate scenario where negligence on behalf of medical professionals causes a negative impact on the patient’s life, it is important they receive the full support necessary.
Common Medical Negligence claims;
- Incorrect Prescription compensation
- Blood clot compensation
- Birth Injury compensation
- Incorrect Surgical procedure compensation
- GP negligence
- Hospital Negligence
- Cancer Negligence
In the majority of medical negligence cases, the patients’ pre-existing symptoms are deemed to have progressively worsened rather than improved or in other scenarios, it can be possible to develop the new medical condition as a result of poor medical treatment or advice. Thus the severity of the situation dictates that patients are able to rightfully claim compensation for the difficulty and pain they have suffered.
How to Make a Claim?
The first thing you need to do is provide us with some of the basic information about you and your injury, this allows us to quickly allocate your case to one of our experienced partner claims management companies. In order to assess your case, your allocated claims management company will give you a call to discuss your claim and establish the nature and severity of your injury. If a claim is established the claims company will recommend a specialist solicitor who is experienced in your injury type. If you decided to go ahead with making your claim the representing solicitors will typically charge you a success fee of 25% plus VAT from the amount recovered, although this will be subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be more or less than this. Termination fees may apply if you decide to cancel the case outside your statutory cooling off period for example hours worked on the file, time on telephone calls, letter, payment for DVLA search etc. You are not charged for the enquiry service we provide; we receive a fee from the claims management company which you are allocated. The recommending claims management company may receive a recommendation fee directly from your legal representative if you agree to proceed with your claim. You are not required to use our enquiry service and may instruct a solicitor on your own.
