Compensation Claim Uxbridge
If you have been the victim of medical or clinical negligence then you might be entitled to make a compensation claim.
One of the potentially most horrific cases of medical negligence which results in victims wanting to pursue a compensation claim is anaesthetic awareness.
This is where you are sedated, usually undergoing a general anaesthetic for an operation (whether this is a routine or an emergency procedure) and for whatever reason the anaesthetic fails to do its job properly.
You might find yourself regaining consciousness and being aware of what’s going on around you.
You might be completely paralysed and unable to speak, but fully conscious.
You might even feel some degree of discomfort or pain during the procedure and won’t be “rescued” from your ordeal until the anaesthetist, or someone else, realises that your eyes are open and you are frantically trying to communicate with them.
If this has happened to you or a loved one then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim and receive financial compensation as a result.

You will also be under no obligation to proceed with your compensation claim should you decide, for whatever reason, not to at this stage.
If you do decide to make a compensation claim via Accident Advice Helpline then we will put you in touch with one of our in house solicitors. They will initially take all the details of your case and will be interested in establishing:
- Who is responsible for the accident/injury/trauma you have suffered
- The extent of your injuries and the likely time of recovery
- That the incident happened within the last three years
They will also advise you, in the case of medical negligence, to make a complaint directly to the individual(s) involved in your care (if you have not already done so).
Once all of this can be completed your solicitor will contact the third party and start the legal process for making your compensation claim. In most cases there will be no need for you to attend court; however, in the unlikely event that this will be necessary your solicitor will support you every step of the way and help you get the financial compensation you deserve for your suffering.
