Have you been the victim of medical negligence?
While medical professionals successfully treat patients every day in the UK, problems with medical treatment can, and do, occur. These medical failures can be highly distressing, and can involve serious injuries as well as financial loss.
Medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence) occurs when a medical practitioner breaches the duty of care that they owe to you, resulting in injury or loss as a result. This can be physical or psychiatric, and losses can include loss of earnings and the cost of your future treatment.
A negligence claim can be the result of either NHS treatment or private healthcare. This could be for necessary medical treatment you have had to undergo, as well as treatment you have chosen to undergo, such as cosmetic surgery.
A specialist solicitor can make your claim for medical compensation as simple as possible, and if your claim is successful, the court will award you damages. This can not only compensate you for the damage caused, but also help towards ensuring improvements are made in medical care for future patients.
