    Injury claim in Trefriw

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Trefriw

    Could you be entitled to make a medical negligence injury claim?

    Trefriw is a village in Conwy County Borough, Wales. Known for its excellent hiking opportunities, woollen mills and spa waters.  Unfortunately the people of Trefriw are not immune from illness and injury and when they require medical assistance they will rely on the help of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals at the local hospitals and surgeries of the area. Each and every one of us expects to be able to completely trust medical professionals with our health. In the majority of cases we can be assured that we have been cared for in the best possible way, based on the medication and care that is available. Regrettably sometimes a patient does not receive the medical attention required and in cases such as these there may be grounds for a compensation pay out.  The patient will need to make an injury claim in Trefriw in order to receive this sum.

    When can a patient make a medical negligence injury claim in Trefriw?

    Medical negligence, or clinical negligence as it is also called, can be claimed if it can be shown that:

    • The doctor (or other medical professional) had a duty of care over the claimant
    • The doctor was negligent in his management of the patient’s illness
    • The patient suffered as a result of this negligence

    The claimant needs to prove both liability and causation in order to take in injury claim. Liability means that the medical professional has acted in a way that no other similar professional would have. Causation describes what harm has occurred that otherwise would not have occurred. This must be proved ‘on the balance of probability’ i.e. it is over 50% likely to be the medical professional’s fault.

    The claimant is then assessed to determine the level of compensation that they are entitled to. Factors such as loss of earnings (current and future), reduced quality of life, psychological damage, are all taken into consideration.

    What are the time limits for making an injury claim?

    If you have suffered as a result of medical negligence, you have 3 years from the time that you have knowledge of the harm you have suffered. There are exceptions to this rule, for example if at the time of injury the claimant was under 18, then there is no time limit. A court can overrule the 3 year rule should it be deemed necessary.
