    ‘No Win, No Fee’ Law Firm in St Edmundsbury

    When we need medical help, there is little we can do but rely on doctors and hospitals, trusting that they will do everything they can to help us get through whatever difficult time we find ourselves in. However, nothing is without risk, and, when an operation is needed, so is the patient’s consent and, in order to obtain this, the doctor must give the patients all the necessary and relevant information in order to make an informed decision which could affect the rest of their life. Patients must be told about the risks, as well of the benefits, of any invasive operation. However, if the doctor is negligent during the operation, or did not divulge all the information necessary, then our ‘no win, no fee’ St Edmundsbury law firm are here to help you through this difficult time.

    What Happens If Things Go Wrong

    If medical negligence occurs, then giving consent to the operation does not absolve this. The doctor is still liable and you may be able to make a ‘no win, no fee’ law firm in St Edmundsbury claim for compensation with our solicitors, as no consent form covers the risk of negligence during surgery. Sometimes, when the form is completed, a list of the relevant risks could be written on it for the patient to see, which can become important when, if these risks do occur during the surgery, the patient claims that they were not told about them and would not have agreed to the surgery if they had known. This can cause difficult legal situations, that our ‘no win, no fee’ law firm in St Edmundsbury solicitors can help you with.

    However, the usually successful cases come from those patients who can prove that they were not advised of decision changing risks that have occurred during their surgery, whether it was not written on the consent form, though some forms do not contain a list of risks, or if there are witnesses who can help support the claim. The difficulties are always there in cases such as this, especially in conflicting statement cases where there is little evidence on either side, as decisions such as these are made by patients and family members at times of great pain and stress.

    How ‘No Win, No Fee’ St Edmundsbury Solicitors Can Help

    Our ‘no win, no fee’ St Edmundsbury solicitors know how difficult and stressful situations involving medical problems and the law can be, especially when sickness and stress has most likely been something that has been going on for some time before the case. However, if you can prove that medical negligence occurred or you were not given all the information before giving consent to an operation, then contact our Accident Advice Helpline directly.

    Take our 30 second test to find out if your claim might be eligible and how much compensation you might win if the claim is successful. Remember, it’s ‘no win, no fee’ in St Edmundsbury, so there’s no downside to giving it a try.
