Clinical Negligence Solicitors

For any individual undergoing their medical care or the care of a loved one, it is a time of great uncertainty. Your wellbeing is entrusted to a medical professional. Most of the time that medical care will be delivered with the utmost professionalism. However, this is not always the case, there are times when a medical care and treatment doesn’t live up to what you expected. The Medical procedure which you had or the service which was delivered to you may have been provided far short of their expected duty of care.

Should that substandard care cause loss, injury, pain or trauma to you or a loved one, it may be that the medical professional or the hospital which employs them is liable to a claim of clinical negligence.

If you suspect negligence you need to show that the care provided (or not provided and should have been) was more than an unavoidable mistake, that an adverse outcome arose from the negligent action or omission. At BeenLetDown, we provided trusted legal services to those who have been the victim of clinical negligence.

Clinical Negligence Claims

For a clinical negligence claim to be successful, it must be shown that the medical professional breached their duty of care and that the breach of duty caused you to suffer more than what you would have suffered but for the negligence. Clinical negligence claims can be difficult to establish. You will need independent expert medical evidence from a Professional which specialises in the area of medical practice subject to the claim.

Having said that there are instances where there is a clear case of clinical negligence, which can include some of the following situations.

  • Inaccurate amputation
  • Clinical misdiagnosis
  • Incorrect interpretations of a diagnostic scan
  • Giving the wrong medication and suffering an adverse effect
  • Injury due to malpractice

How Do I Make a Claim?

If you consider you have a claim do not hesitate to contact our specialist Solicitors. Our initial consultation/telephone conversation is free and we will be able to ascertain the likelihood of a successful legal claim. However, you should be aware that to establish a clinical negligence claim you will need supportive evidence from an independent medical expert, confirming that there has been a breach of duty. It may be that your situation does not qualify as negligence but simply a risk to a procedure which is within an acceptable range of medical opinion.

If we decide to accept your claim, we will need to investigate the claim, this normally means that we would need to obtain your medical records.

Time Limits

You also need to be aware that there are time limits which apply to these claims. We can discuss these with you if you contact us about your claim.

How Would I Pay for My Claim?

Should it be determined that your claim is worth pursuing, in most cases we will be able to offer a Conditional Fee Agreement, also known as a “No Win No Fee” agreement. At BeenLetDown, we DO NOT deduct a success fee from your recovered damages, like most law firms. This means that you receive the maximum compensation. (subject to deductions for After the event (ATE) insurance – which is optional).

There are several advantages to this arrangement for you as the client. Firstly it shows that we aren’t simply looking to pursue a frivolous legal claim with little chance of success; we only take claims we think have a legitimate chance of being won. Secondly it protects you financially, as if there is no compensation won, there is no payment made. In addition, it provides a clear framework for payment that all sides understand, rather than there being hidden charges from the Solicitor down the line or a lack of willingness to pay for certain services from the client at the conclusion of the legal claim.
