If you have been injured or suffered negative consequences in some way as a result of clinical negligence, you should speak to an injury solicitor for a non fault accident in Oadby today to find out if you could make a claim for financial compensation as a result of the personal injuries you have suffered.
Clinical negligence (which used to be known as medical negligence) covers a wide range of areas and treatments.
If you have suffered an injury as the result of some form of medical treatment, this does not necessarily come under “medical negligence”. Such an incident may be regarded as a medical accident, or an adverse incident – your injury, or the negative outcome, could be a result of foreseen complications arising from surgery. Speak to an injury solicitor in Oadby today to find out if the situation you have been involved in does qualify for a compensation claim.
