Claiming compensation for medical negligence
Claiming compensation can be very complex due to the nature of the issues that are involved therefore, you will need to have a specialist solicitor who has relevant experience.
There are four different stages that are concerned with getting compensation for medical negligence.
Stage one – The appointed solicitor will need to access your medical records in order to study them to gather information for the case.
Stage two – The solicitor needs to be able to prove that the doctor or medical professional was at fault. The solicitor will use a medical expert in order to review the evidence and prepare a report.
Stage three – Once a case of negligence has been established the solicitor will have to prove that the injury could have been avoided if reasonable care had been taken.
Stage four – The solicitor will need to assess the nature of the injury and the extent of the injuries.
It can be very daunting when it comes to claiming compensation for a medical negligence injury and this is where an injury solicitor can be very useful.
