No one likes to think of things going wrong but when they do, the impact on our lives can be enormous and no more so than when things go wrong with medical treatment. If this has happened to you, you may be able to claim compensation and with our expert injury solicitors. You could soon be awarded the financial justice you deserve and are entitled to.
Here we answer some questions frequently asked about making these types of compensation claims:
What kind of medical negligence cases are eligible?
There are many different types of cases and, as compensation claims of this nature vary so widely, it is impossible to list them all here. Rather than not making a claim, it really is worth having a chat with one of Accident Advice Helpline’s advisers by calling 0800 689 0500 but cases handled by our injury solicitors previously include:
- Surgical errors
- Injuries received at birth
Are medical negligence compensation claims expensive?
As with all compensation claims made with Accident Advice Helpline and our injury solicitors, we take on all cases on a no win, no fee basis. This means that you do not need to ‘put any money on account’ or take a huge financial gamble of a case that may fail. This way you, as the claimant, are protected.
What about being in court?
Many people do worry that making a compensation claim for medical negligence (as well as other claims) will see them having to attend court. But, the aim of our injury solicitors is that the ‘other side’ admits liability for your injury; in other words, they admit that their actions (or inaction) caused your injury.
Complex cases, or those that are contested do sometimes end up in court but if this is the case, our injury solicitors will be with you every step of the way.
What about medical assessments?
When compensation cases are complex, the injuries extensive, then you may find that you are invited to attend an independent medical assessment. Rather than seeing this as something negative, we suggest this is a positive move, an opportunity to have all your injuries assessed – you may find that this has a positive impact on your claim, as opposed to trying to catch you out.
