    What is a medical accident?

    A medical accident is the term that is often given when medical negligence or error caused harm to you. It may be that a medical professional did not give the correct standard of care, or that a mistake was made.

    Some types of medical accidents:

    • Making an error during surgery
    • Wrong medication given
    • Making the wrong diagnosis
    • Failure to inform you about the risks of your treatment
    • Failure to get your consent for treatment
    • Not giving you the treatment you need
    • Mistreatment

    The purpose of making a compensation claim is to put you in a position as if the accident had not occurred. We understand that money is no substitute for your health, however it can help you put the incident behind you and help with the financial burden that the accident has caused.

    There are two components to the compensation which can be awarded:

    • General damages

    This is for the pain and suffering you have endured due to the medical accident. It will also take into account the psychological trauma of the accident.

    • Special damages

    This covers the financial loss you have suffered from, including loss of earnings (including expected future loss) and any expenses relating to the accident, i.e. prescription charges and travelling expenses.

    Making a claim

    If you decide to make a claim for compensation medical accident experts will require some important information from you.

    Provide a detailed account of what exactly happened. Include the names of people involved, where the accident occurred and the injuries you suffered. Try to be as detailed and as accurate as possible. This will assist your solicitor when compiling the evidence for the claim. If possible provide your solicitor with any witness details, photographs or any other documents that could help your claim for compensation.

    You can give our team a call on 0800 689 0500 to discuss things in more detail.
