Stages of medical negligence compensation cases
There are a number of different stages that a compensation claim for medical negligence has to go through. In most cases the injured person will make a claim to the person treating them or the hospital that they are attending. The National Health Service has established good procedures for handling complaints. In some cases the complaint procedure can assist you with claiming compensation. The process for claiming compensation consists of four main stages, which are:
- Your medical records will need to be accessed and studied carefully
- Evidence has to be gathered in order to prove that the doctor or other health professional was negligent. This evidence is gathered with the assistance of a medical expert who will review all of the paperwork and prepare a detailed report focusing on the standard of care that has been received.
- Once negligence has been established the injuries that were sustained will still have to be proven and it has to be shown that the injuries could have been avoided if a reasonable amount of care had been taken.
- Expert medical evidence will need to be obtained to show the extent of the injuries that have been incurred. Getting this evidence will mean that you get the correct amount of compensation.
