If you have been injured by medical incompetence whilst in the care of a hospital, you can claim personal injury compensation from that hospital. All institutions which offer medical care carry insurance against just such an eventuality, and this is how the victim of negligence can be paid. If you call Accident Advice Helpline on the Freephone number, one of the expert lawyers will be able to advise you. If you ring out of office hours, someone will get back to you as soon as possible to discuss your claim. You can also use our 30-second test on the website, to see if you have a valid claim and what your compensation amount might be.
Hospital personal injury compensation is not hard to arrange
The only thing you must bear in mind before starting a claim for personal injury compensation from a hospital is that there is no way of making a complaint against the medical professional involved once the claim is under way. Sometimes, people feel that bringing the person’s incompetence to the notice of the relevant professional body is more important than claiming compensation for injury and that is something that should be discussed at the outset with the expert lawyer on the phone. The initial chat does not obligate the person injured to proceed and also does not constitute legal proceedings. The lawyers at AAH can give advice based on all the current legislation regarding clinical negligence.
Medical negligence compensation is not just for the big things
People sometimes worry that their claim is not ‘important’ enough, but in fact we are all entitled to expect the best treatment from our doctors and hospitals and should be compensated when the standard falls short. No one is perfect and sometimes outcomes in medical issues are not perfect, but where this is caused by negligence or incompetence it is only right and proper that there should be recourse to law, with no up-front costs. The lawyers at AAH work on a no win, no fee* basis for all claims, including those for personal injury compensation from a hospital. There is no need to worry that you will have to face the doctor or other professional found to be at fault, as most cases are concluded with no need for a court appearance.
