    Swansea hospitals compensation reaches £9 million

    By David Brown on July 12, 2014

    There are two main hospitals in Swansea and over £9 million was paid out between them in compensation in 2013, according to official figures. Swansea hospitals compensation amounted to £5,408,736 at Singleton Hospital and Morriston Hospital paid out £3,972,916. In addition Neath Port Talbot Hospital paid out a six-figure sum of £790,984.

    These figures relate to claims that were settled in 2013 and are not related to any claims that were lodged during that year. It can take some time for claims to go through the process of being assessed and in some cases settled, depending on circumstances. Figures for compensation can vary from year to year, but a spokeswoman stated that the recent rise in claims was not indicative of a trend emerging.

    Considering a compensation claim for hospital errors

    Although the figure for Swansea hospitals compensation is high, it is important to note most hospitals provide an excellent service. They deal with thousands of people and mistakes are rare. Of course if you believe a mistake has been made in your care you are entitled to find out more and to consider whether a compensation claim would be relevant in your case.

    This can be difficult to do alone, which is why you should consult professional injury compensation lawyers to find out more. There is a duty of care all care-givers have and if that duty of care is called into question and there is evidence of negligence in the situation, you may be able to bring a claim. Gathering all the available evidence from the situation can help to back up your case, but even then professional advice is definitely a good way to go ahead and consider whether a claim is warranted.
