    Negligent doctors and how to report them


    If you have been a victim of negligent doctors but are now beginning to feel better, you may have decided that you will let well enough alone, chalk it up to experience and let the matter rest there. This is certainly understandable enough, but when making a personal injury claim is so simple, it seems silly not to at least contact us and see what we can advise. When you call Accident Advice Helpline, you get legal advice from experts who have specialised in personal injury compensation. We have been in the business of helping people through this process since 2000 so we are certainly a good place to start.

    Complaining about negligent doctors

    Sometimes a person who has been a victim of negligent doctors or other medical professionals does not feel that they have come to any permanent or substantial harm and simply want to complain. In cases where the negligence was serious – lack of training or incompetence at some surgical procedure, for example – it is the duty of anyone who knows about it to make sure that the proper authorities are made aware, for the protection of other people. The Local Authority Social Services and National Health Service Complaints (England) Regulations 2009 sets out the requirements of hospitals, GP practices and similar bodies when they receive a complaint and in general they have to reply within a very short time to let the complainant know what steps they will be taking. It is important to remember though that they will not take up a complaint if it is subject to legal proceedings, so it is important to decide whether you want to complain officially before you begin your personal injury claim.

    Check with AAH first

    Our Freephone number will put you in touch with someone who can help you pursue a claim against any negligent doctors you have been unfortunate enough to encounter. A quick way of telling in advance whether you are eligible for compensation is to fill in our 30-second test – you will find it on our website www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk and it will give you a quick guide as to what compensation you might receive. This is not the same as a definite offer of course and some claims can take quite a long time to settle, but our expert lawyers will deal with everything, keeping you informed at each step.
