    Compensation claim in Port Talbot


    How medical negligence solicitors can help you with your compensation claim

    A compensation claim can be made if a medical practitioner such as a doctor or nurse has made a surgical error, misdiagnosis of your illness or given you the wrong treatment or the incorrect amount of drugs. This kind of compensation claim is referred to as medical negligence and is very serious, especially if it has caused damaging after effects.

    It could be that you have had general problems relating to medical negligence or more serious effects. In these cases you will need a specialised negligence solicitor to handle your case. Accident Advice Helpline can provide you with a solicitor to deal with your compensation claim in Port Talbot and there are various steps to handling your query.

    Collect information

    The medical negligence solicitor will gather information regarding your case, including evidence and witnesses, so that they can take your compensation claim in Port Talbot to the next stage. The information you will provide will have to be as precise as possible to give you the best chance of a successful outcome. You should also tell them the time and place of the incident, and be as accurate with your information as you can.

    Contact the relevant party

    When all the information regarding your case has been collected, the solicitor will make contact with the relevant party, which may be a company or an individual. They may have to speak to them via their own solicitor. The solicitor will be specialised in the area in question and will have enough experience to give you the best possible chance of a positive outcome.

    Reach a conclusion

    Your medical negligence solicitor will bring the case to an end, although the time period of this can vary depending on the third party and their willingness to admit liability. If the outcome is unsuccessful, you won’t have to pay a penny out, which is part of the no win no fee obligation. You can’t lose if you make your compensation claim in Port Talbot, as no matter what conclusion is reached, you won’t be left out of pocket.
