What is Medical Negligence, & Can I Claim For Compensation?
Medical Negligence is the legal term used when a healthcare professional acts against the best interests of your health – or does not act at all. Where this action – or inaction – has a harmful effect on your health, endangering your well-being, you may have been the victim of medical neglect.
To be sure, you’ll need to speak to a Medical Negligence Solicitor to find out whether or not the right action was taken. When you’re ill or injured, you expect to get the best care, from medical experts. If this doesn’t happen when it should, you may be able to make a no win no fee compensation claim.
The NHS – Is medical malpractice on the rise?
Sadly, in a world where funding is low and the population is growing, NHS negligence is surely on the rise. From delayed diagnoses to surgical errors, we have seen the amount of NHS claims we handle steadily increase. The NHS is there to serve you, so when it fails in its duty, you have a legal right to claim for clinical negligence compensation.
So what happens when Medical Mistakes Cause You Harm?
If you have been mistreated, or turned away from your GP, Doctor or Hospital – we can get you the answers you deserve, so that you can prevent others from suffering from the same ill-treatment that you did.

Wherever you are, our medical solicitors can travel to meet you – in the comfort of your own home, if it suits you better.
Is There a Time Limit On Making A Clinical Negligence Claim?
Yes, though it does have some exceptions. Usually, you’ll need to start your compensation claim within three years of the date when you were injured – or when you first found out that your harm was caused by the mistakes of your doctors. Generally speaking, if you believe you have a legal claim in anything, don’t delay in seeking help. The earlier a potential case is reported, the easier it is to find evidence for it, and the better your memory will be of the crucial details.
If the three years have already elapsed, yet you think you may still have a claim, get in touch with our medical legal team on 01204 521133 for free advice on any options you may have.
How Much Will I Get When Suing for Medical Negligence?
Everyone’s claim is entirely different, so it is difficult to advise accurately. However, our Medical Negligence Compensation Calculator may provide a rough estimate of what you may receive for your medical mistake. These estimates are based on your injuries and also other factors, such as psychological problems and missed time at work.

What Will I Need To Do?
Your medical negligence lawyer will ask you some questions about your experiences, in order to understand fully the effect that the negligence has had on your life. They will use this information to fight your case later, ensuring that the compensation covers all of your needs and makes whatever amends it can for what you have gone through.
The next step is gathering evidence to prove that you deserve compensation. This involves taking detailed statements, getting copies of any medical records or X-rays which you might need, and getting expert opinions on what took place. Your expert clinical negligence solicitor will handle this on your behalf, and will keep you up to date on the progress they are making. If they need anything from you, they’ll let you know. It’s our aim to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible for you. After someone has been through the stress of medical neglect, the last thing they need is more worrying about legal forms and case requirements.
