The term medical negligence can cover a whole multitude of evils. From incorrectly filled out prescriptions, via botched laser eye surgery procedures, to serious brain injures caused by the incompetence of a surgeon. But what brings all of these different types of medical negligence together?
Sure, they’re all typically caused by the lazy or irresponsible behaviour of medical professionals, but they might also, if you have the misfortune to be embroiled in one, give rise to a 100% no win no fee* Coniston action.
That’s right; if you’ve been made ill, injured or had an existing condition made worse as a result of the incompetent or negligent behaviour a medical professional, there will be a chance that you might be able to claim compensation by launching a personal injury case.
Medical negligence and no win no fee* Coniston solicitors
Medical negligence cases that might result in an opportunity to take 100% no win no fee* Coniston personal injury action against a negligent medical professional can take many forms. It’s likely you’re probably have read about some of the more high profile freak occurrences such as the brain surgery patient who had glue injected into her brain instead of a harmless dye, or the man who had the wrong kidney removed.
These types of cases can result in pay-outs worth many millions of pounds, you might also be able to launch a personal injury claim in the event that one of your loved ones or relatives died as a result of medical negligence. Again, if you can use a decent 100% no win no fee* Coniston solicitor to successfully fight such an action, you may be able to secure a seven-figure pay-out.
You may also be able to take action for incidents of medical negligence that are comparatively far less serious. As mentioned above, if the irresponsible actions of a medical professional were to result in you being made ill, injured, or worsen an illness or condition you were already suffering from, you may well have a personal injury claim on your hands.
So, whether you’ve been given the wrong drugs by an absentminded pharmacist, had a cosmetic surgeon make a hash of your breast enlargement or been misdiagnosed with the wrong condition, it may well be worth your while reviewing your options.
