There are many concerns surrounding claiming for medical negligence which is often considered the most sensitive of personal injury claims. Clients can be very reluctant to start a personal injury claim for medical negligence – we find that people feel more confident when starting the more common types of claim such as for road traffic accidents. However, medical negligence can cause injuries that are just as severe and if someone else is to blame then a compensation claim may be possible. It is also important to note that most claims are actually paid out of an insurance policy.
Claiming for medical negligence
It is very straightforward to claim for medical negligence. All you have to do is get a personal injury lawyer to set out a case for you. They will need some evidence about what happened so you may want to jot down everything that you can remember before you contact a personal injury law firm. It can be difficult to work out exactly who was to blame but your personal injury lawyer will handle all of that for you. There may have to be an investigation at the hospital or clinic where you were treated.
Some medical negligence claims do have to go to court but many do not and it is very likely that you will be able to handle the whole thing from the comfort of your own home. Your personal injury lawyer will handle as much of the paperwork as possible and keep you informed about what is happening with the claim.
You will not have to pay any money upfront to get your claim started. This is because of a system called no-win, no-fee* which gives clients complete peace of mind about starting a claim with the minimum of financial risk.
You will be able to claim for the injury itself and for the money that you have lost because you are injured – you just have to make sure that you keep receipts, invoices and so on.
