    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Compensation for fatal NHS failures


    We rely on the NHS to provide us with a high standard of medical treatment and when someone we love is ill or injured, we put our trust in medical staff to treat them. Unfortunately, failures in the system do happen, and when they do they have seriously impact patients, causing severe injuries or even death.

    From miscommunication to staff shortages and a lack of experienced staff, there are many reasons why NHS failures can occur and if you or someone you love has been injured as a result, you could consider making a claim for compensation for fatal NHS failures.

    Here are just a few examples of the types of failures that could occur in hospitals:

    • Transferring a patient when it’s unnecessary and risking their health
    • Ventilators or other equipment failing after not being regularly checked
    • Failing to monitor a patient properly
    • Miscommunication between staff leading to treatment delays
    • Staff shortages meaning inexperienced staff are on hand

    If you’ve been affected by the above, or by other systemic failures in the NHS, you have a right to claim compensation for your suffering. Remember that a three-year time limit usually applies when it comes to making a claim, so contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the incident.

    Choosing the right lawyer

    You want to ensure you work with a personal injury lawyer you can trust when claiming compensation for NHS failures – you’ve already been through a stressful, traumatic situation and the last thing you need is more stress.
