Medical or clinical negligence is a term covering a host of situations where a health care provider such as a hospital, dentist, plastic surgeon or GP has caused distress or injury due to a short-falling in the quality of care provided. In the majority of cases, this refers to actual errors during medical proceedings. You may simply have been misdiagnosed, causing you undue suffering before your correct diagnosis, or something may even have gone wrong during an operation.
If your life has been negatively affected as a result of clinical negligence, it is critical that you make a medical negligence compensation claim as soon as possible. The specialist team at Whitestone Solicitors has over 30 years’ experience in dealing with medical negligence cases just like yours. Whether you were a private or NHS patient, your care provider has a responsibility to ensure you are treated in a competent, efficient, and caring way. Failure to do so can cause serious problems for the patients they treat. By actively pursuing medical negligence claims, patients can be recompensed for the suffering they endured.
If you’re thinking of pursuing a clinical negligence compensation claim as a result of damages gained during plastic surgery, hospital operations, or the dentist, it is crucial that you talk to an advisor from the earliest possible point. If your injuries have long-since healed, it will be difficult to get proof that your life was negatively affected, and you may not be entitled to receive any compensation. Your trips to any NHS facilities will already be documented, but it is important that you make note of how your ailment has affected your normal life, too.
If your medical negligence compensation claim is successful, you will be recompensed for any time missed off work, any costs associated with your recovery, and for any pain that was caused to you. Our expert lawyer team will work with you to fully detail these elements, ensuring you receive the full medical negligence compensation claim you are entitled to. And if we take on your case on a ‘no-win, no-fee’ basis, if your claim is unsuccessful you won’t pay a penny.
You should not worry that your health care provider, be it a hospital, GP, dentist, or a private practice will suffer as a result of your claim. All such businesses should be covered by full public liability insurance for exactly this kind of situation. How much medical negligence compensation claim you receive will depend on the severity of your damages and their affect on your normal life, and will not be affected by the wealth of the company your claim is against. For this reason, we perform a full assessment on all cases, from your very first call to us. If we feel that the courts will not appreciate the extent of your damages, we will let you know, and we would advise you drop the case.
