    Clinical trials accident claim


    If you require help in making a clinical trials accident claim then Accident Advice Helpline is here to give you expert legal advice on your options.

    It is no secret that volunteering for a clinical trial puts you at risk. Though testing out medication for the future is a brave and selfless thing to do, it can put your own future at risk if things go wrong. Accidents of this nature can be extremely detrimental to your health. Injuries can vary, depending on what clinical product it is you are trialling, but if you suffer long-term health problems or injuries as a result of the trial, you may have a case for compensation.

    Making your claim

    If the accident you suffered during your clinical trial was within the last three years, Accident Advice Helpline will be happy to take your claim further. After sustaining injuries or health problems in a clinical trial, we recommend that you start to gather evidence about what happened to you as soon as possible (such as photographic evidence and the testimonies of others around you, who may be experiencing the same problems).

    We can only pursue your claim if you have a medical record of your accident and how it has affected you. Therefore, make sure that you see a doctor as soon as possible – not just to start your claim, but also to make sure that no further complications have been caused by your accident. Your relationship with your GP is still important, even once you have a clinical trials accident claim underway with us; if you experience any changes in your medical condition that could have been triggered by your accident, your doctor will add this to your medical records, meaning we can update your case notes and possibly secure more compensation.

    Ultimately, compensation payouts are there to help you regain control of your life and provide you with a sense of justice for what’s happened to you. It can help you begin to feel like your old self again. Your injuries are due to medical negligence – so making a claim often raises awareness of what happened and encourages those responsible to make sure that they take the correct actions to prevent anything like this happening to anyone else.
