No win no fee* clinical negligence claims
Clinical negligence is a newer term that tends to be used for what has always been known as medical negligence. Medical negligence has always been mainly associated with doctors and hospitals, but any medical practitioner can make a mistake and if you are the victim, you might want to make a no win no fee* clinical negligence claim.
The whole medical profession is made up of so many different areas and specialties that there are many places and people that could make a mistake and cause the victim to be worse than they were originally, or create a new condition.
Just a few suggestions are:
- The optician getting your laser eye surgery wrong;
- The dentist pulling out the wrong teeth;
- The practice nurse taking a test incorrectly, causing flawed results;
- A dietician or therapist giving you the wrong advice;
- A pharmacist giving you the wrong medication, or the wrong dose of the correct medication;
- A care worker not taking care and causing an injury;
- A hospital treating you incorrectly; or
- A doctor ignoring important symptoms so giving the wrong diagnosis.
This is a very small sample of mistakes that medical professionals can make — if you are the patient being treated, you could suffer much more because of them. If you are in this situation, you should seriously consider making a no win no fee* clinical negligence claim, and Accident Advice Helpline are the best law firm to help you do this.
Making a no win no fee* clinical negligence claim with Accident Advice Helpline
Clinical negligence claims are among the most complicated of all personal injury claims. They are not always very clear-cut, as some victims think because a treatment has not worked as well as they hoped, they may have a claim.
This is not the case. We have to be able to prove that there is more than a 50% chance that the way you were treated caused you to be worse or created a new problem. This is often achieved by a report from a specialist. If the report says that you should have been treated differently, then you probably have a good case to claim compensation.
However, if the report says you were treated perfectly correctly, there will be no case for the medical professional to answer to.
Victims of clinical negligence should always make a claim, if for no other reason than to ensure that whatever the practitioner is getting wrong does not continue and other patients suffer the same fate as you.
