In the vast majority of situations, surgical procedures and other medical care will be delivered without any obvious problems. However, in the event that you have ever had a problem with medical care, it can cause significant loss or damage. If you feel that you have suffered care that has clearly fallen short of expected medical standards, you may have grounds to claim for medical negligence. If you are a Manchester based claimant looking for respected medical negligence solicitors, Been Let Down are a trusted option.

Time Limitations

Any potential claimant should be aware that there is a time limit on how long they can wait to make a claim. If the medical negligence has come to light within the past three years, then you will be able to consider a claim. It’s important to note that the time period starts from when you became aware of the potential negligence, so there may still be cause to pursue a claim even if the event happened further back.

Why No Win No Fee?

‘No Win No Fee’ is a method that minimises financial risk for claimants when using medical negligence solicitors to pursue compensation.  Here at Been Let Down, we will often be able to offer Manchester based claimants a conditional fee agreement. This means that client and solicitor will come to terms on a predetermined percentage of any compensation that is secured. So if the case is unsuccessful and/or no financial compensation is awarded, there is no fee to be paid by the client.

Making a Medical Negligence Claim?

As a medical negligence solicitor, all potential claims explored by Been Let Down are handled with an initial consultation.  At this consultation, your case would be assessed to determine the likelihood of it being successful or not.  Your solicitor would discuss all procedures to ensure you understand what will happen.

It is important for the solicitor to take a detailed statement from you.  You should expect to be asked to provide further evidence, for example medical reports and x-rays if you have them, or are able to contact your doctor for this information. Sometimes, our experienced medical negligence solicitors will obtain any information from your doctor on your behalf should we believe that the claim has legal merit.

What Kinds of Claims Do Medical Negligence Solicitors Handle?

There are many types of occasions where trust can be broken in a medical setting.  In some of these cases it will be simple mistakes or unavoidable problems, but sometimes there will be substandard care that constitutes negligence.  Medical facilities liable to be subject to negligence claims include:

  • Hospitals
  • Clinics
  • Surgeries
  • Dental Practices

It does not matter whether your treatment was carried out on the NHS or if it was done privately, every single patient can expect a duty of care from a medical professional to you as a patient. If you are unsure as to whether or not you should pursue a claim, you should contact a trusted medical negligence solicitors ready to cater to Manchester based claimants.
