Clinical and Medical Negligence Claims
When we become ill we put our trust in the medical professionals to and we accept the advice and information provided to us by them. Unfortunately, sometimes mistakes do happen and doctors, nurses, dentists and other health professionals can make mistakes.
Making a medical negligence claim for compensation can provide you and your family with the financial support and security you require. This is particularly important if your ability to work, either now or in the future, has been impacted or you are likely to require professional care.
Most people don’t want to make a Medical Negligence claim against a Doctor or Medical Professional, you just want to get better, but by making a claim you can help prevent similar mistakes in the future and a settlement may go some way to assisting in your rehabilitation and give you closure.
You are entitled to make a claim if you have suffered injury or illness as the result of an error made by a medical professional.
If you choose to pursue a claim, you will need an expert team of Medical Negligence Specialists to represent you because medical negligence claims can be difficult to prove.

What can I claim for?
You can claim compensation for any injuries or losses suffered which were a direct result of the negligent treatment you received. This can include;
♦ Compensation for pain and suffering
♦ Payment for ongoing treatment
♦ Compensation if you can’t carry out certain activities or hobbies
♦ Loss of earnings
♦ The cost of any extra care or equipment you may need
♦ The cost of adapting your home
♦ Compensation for psychological damage.
A claim can be made for the next of kin of someone who has died or doesn’t have capacity to make their own claim. The court will take into account certain social security benefits you get because of your injury before they decide how much compensation you’ll get.

What Is Medical Negligence?
Negligence potentially occurs when there is a failure by the doctor or hospital to act in accordance with the standard of the reasonably competent practitioners at the relevant time.
How long do I have to make a claim?
You must start your legal claim within 3 years from when the incident happened or when you first realised you’d suffered an injury. In the case of children, the 3-year limit doesn’t start to apply until their 18th birthday. If the claim is about a patient who can’t manage their own affairs because of a mental disability, the 3-year period doesn’t apply until (and unless) they recover from their disability. In both these cases, a parent or other person close to them can make a claim on their behalf.
It’s best to take specialist advice as soon as possible after the incident – don’t leave this until the last minute.
What Is The Claims Process?
First we would need to gather evidence and statements from yourself and witnesses, as well as any medical records to suport your case. An average medical negligence claim might take between 12 and 18 months to resolve.
How Much Compensation?
Cases of medical negligence can range from anything from £1000 to amounts exceeding £200, 000 and much more depending on the severity of the case. Each case is different so without knowing details it is difficult to give an estimate until we know the facts.
