What is the role of professional negligence lawyers? These are specialist lawyers who most victims would approach if they have been mistreated by a member of the medical profession.
When we need medical advice or treatment, we place a huge amount of trust in our doctors, hospitals and other medical professionals. However, sometimes they make mistakes and the consequences can be very serious.
Role of professional negligence lawyers
There have been cases where a doctor or hospital has told a patient they have indigestion when in reality they were having a heart attack, or where a cancer was not properly diagnosed for many months. These are just two examples of things that have gone wrong in the past, and anyone in this situation is entitled to compensation.
If they did not survive because of the misdiagnosis or mistreatment, the family is entitled to claim compensation from whoever provided the healthcare.
Professional negligence lawyers can help claim your compensation
Medical negligence is a specialist area of law, and the role of professional negligence lawyers is to handle it carefully.
It is a very complex subject. It needs the experience and expertise that the professional negligence lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline have. They will give your claim the best chance of success.
Many victims are frightened to stand up to their doctors or hospital, and find the prospect of making a compensation claim daunting. We are here to take that stress away from their shoulders, make sure they are fairly dealt with, and paid the compensation they deserve.
It is bad enough feeling ill or being in pain, without the person you trusted making it worse. Part of the problem is that what has happened to you, could be happening to other patients if they are being given the same level of care you received.
Making a claim can highlight the problem to the authorities, so that they can correct the situation and save others from suffering the same fate as you.
Making a medical negligence claim
For a successful medical negligence claim, you should be able to show that there is at least a 50% chance that the treatment you were given made your illness or injury worse, or created a new problem for you.
Under these circumstances, you are entitled to compensation from whoever was responsible. We can help to make sure you receive what you are due.
With more than enough stress because of what has happened, we do not want to add more stress over financing your claim. So at Accident Advice Helpline, we use the no-win, no-fee basis.
