Do you need to make a no-win, no-fee Wakefield compensation claim because of clinical negligence?
When people are unwell or injured, they often rely on medical professionals to assist them. If, for example, you experience a sudden and unexpected injury, you may need emergency medical treatment, or intervention in order to save your life. In the United Kingdom, we rely on teams of paramedics, doctors, surgeons and nurses to deliver this care so that lives can be saved. In other situations, people may need on-going care. If, for example, you’re diagnosed with a serious illness, you may undergo months of tests and treatment in order to help you combat the illness.
There should be no delays in receiving medical treatment
In order for patients to be given the best possible care, it is vital that they receive the appropriate diagnostic tests and that they are carried out swiftly. Often, delay can result in fatalities occurring so it’s important to treat illnesses and injuries as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, in some cases, things can go wrong and patients don’t receive the treatment they are entitled to. If, for example, their tests are not arranged quickly enough, or the results are lost, they may not be able to start treatment. If the wrong cause of treatment is prescribed, patients could even become worse, rather than better.
How and when to claim compensation
If you haven’t received the medical treatment that you are entitled to and your health has suffered as a result, you may want to make a complaint to your GP’s surgery or your local NHS Trust. In some cases, they may conduct an investigation to find out exactly what happened. However, you don’t have to stop there. You could also make a no-win, no-fee Wakefield claim and obtain compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.
