If a loved one has died, then it is perfectly natural to be angry and upset about the situation. However, in many cases there is nothing that could have been done to prevent their passing, and this is something with which you will have to come to terms.
However, if you honestly believe that your loved one’s doctor is in some way at fault for what happened, then you may want to consider making Knowsley claims against them. Making a claim for compensation can help you to get a sense of closure, and also feel vindication for the death of your loved one.
- Investigate. You should be able to see the medical records of your loved one after they have passed, as long as they are an immediate family member. These can help you to piece together what exactly happened to them, the process through which they went during their illness or after their accident, and where it went wrong.
- Ask for a second opinion. Even if your loved one did not do this while they were alive, it is still worthwhile you asking a professional to take a look at their case and let you know what the doctor could have done to prevent what happened. This will be key in making your claim successful.
- Use a lawyer. Trying to process a claim on your own can be far too stressful after the death of a loved one. Speak to an injury lawyer about what has happened to find out whether you have a good case, and to get them to put one together for you.
- Gather evidence. While your claim is being put together, gather all of the evidence you can find, from prescriptions to notes, diaries and X-rays.
