Beware of men in white coats
In medical negligence cases it can often take some time to determine who really was at fault and acted negligently. Ultimately, the hospital where you suffered your injury is responsible and their insurers must pay, when your claim is proven to be justified. The medical profession, is notorious for “sticking together” and hiding behind pristine white coats and powerful organisations representing their interests.
Many people are involved in performing an operation – the actions of one negligent doctor can impact severely on the careers of others, if they became, no matter how unwittingly, a party to the incident that led to your injury.
Accident Advice Helpline was founded in the year 2000 to provide access to justice for victims of non-fault accidents and cases of negligence. Offering practical support to the “little guy” who does not have a powerful medical board or similar organisation behind him, is one of Accident Advice Helpline’s essential functions.
How our solicitors can help with your injury claim in Sheffield
Working on a no win no fee* basis, our solicitor will deal with all the paperwork for you and may arrange for an additional medical assessment with another doctor to obtain independent evidence concerning your injury, if your case requires it.
Most claims can be dealt with over the telephone and with our help it is easy, fast and efficient to make a claim. There’s no requirement for upfront payment of legal fees as these are typically forwarded to the negligent party when your claim is won and compensation is paid.
Your solicitor will seek damages for the pain and suffering caused to you, but will also add any expenditure that resulted from your injury and any loss of earnings you suffered whilst you were recovering and going through rehabilitation.
In severe cases of medical negligence, where permanent care or on-going home help is needed for the claimant, all future costs for such care, medical costs and specialist treatments as well as loss of future earnings will be factored in before a final compensation figure is determined.
Accident Advice Helpline’s website offers claimants a compensation calculator to obtain an estimate before making an injury claim in Sheffield. There’s also a simple 30-second test that will help people who are unsure if they qualify, to determine whether or not they have a valid case.
