Many of us are treated by the NHS on a regular basis and never experience anything other than excellent medical treatment and care. However, occasionally things can and do go wrong. If it does, we can step in to help you obtain compensation.
It is important to know you do not have to be admitted to hospital to make a compensation claim, for example, you may have suffered due to a mistake by a GP, or during an outpatient appointment.
If you have been injured or suffered as the result of the NHS not administering treatment in accordance with its own standards, you may be able to make a claim against them for compensation due to negligence on their part.
Our Medical Negligence Solicitors have the knowledge and experience to put the most robust case forward to obtain the maximum amount of compensation possible for you.
When you first contact us to discuss your potential claim, we will gather complete details of your case and any evidence required to investigate your claim. During this process, we will request (with your written consent) copies of your medical records, which will be handled in the strictest confidence.
Most importantly, with the guidance of a panel of expert medical and health professionals, we will look at the NHS standard of care that you should have received and compare it to what actually occurred. In doing so, we will look in depth at how the doctor or consultant overseeing your care may have committed errors and how these caused the damage or injury you sustained.
Just as each patient is different, so is every claim. We take on a wide range of cases, from the very simple to the most complex, so settlement times can vary a great deal. Rest assured that no matter how long it takes, we will do everything possible to bring your case to a conclusion as soon as is possible. At all times, we will act in your best interests and keep you informed.
Get in touch with us now for help and support if you feel that you have been badly let down by NHS professionals due to negligence in treatment, surgery, or lack of care.
