You could expect an accident solicitor in Highams Park or indeed any other accident solicitor to have a proven track record in successful claims for compensation for injuries or fatalities from accidents which were no fault of the injured person or of the deceased. They should have experience of dealing with all types of injury compensation claims from lacerations to brain damage, spinal cord injuries and deaths resulting from accidents.
Accident solicitor in Highams Park
An accident solicitor in Highams Park might not have the expertise to deal with all types of compensation claims for personal injury, so you should check whether he or she has experience of dealing with the type of accident you are seeking compensation for. You could be looking through you local telephone directory for an accident solicitor in Highams Park and not find one who has experience in, for example, a medical negligence claim
Medical Negligence claims
You may wish to pursue a claim against a doctor or a hospital because a wrong diagnosis led to complications and perhaps an operation which was not necessary, or which should have been carried out on a different part of the body.
In some cases a death might have occurred because of negligence on the part of hospital staff or a doctor. One case is that of a man who died after there had been a mix up at the hospital and he had been given the wrong kidney. He died after surviving the operation which could have been successful if he had been given the kidney which would have been compatible with his body.
His grieving widow was very angry and determined to pursue a claim for medical negligence. She went to an accident solicitor and was asked to do the research for her solicitor and was given a stack of files to go through in the solicitor’s office. Clearly this is not what a grieving widow wants to do.
An accident solicitor in Highams Park was not involved in this case, but it does illustrate the point that not all accident solicitors have the expertise to deal with every personal injury compensation claim. This particular solicitor was experienced in dealing with compensation claims for industrial accidents, but not in medical negligence cases.
