Medical malpractice compensation claims

medical negligence

Making a claim for medical malpractice compensation can seem like a daunting thought, especially after everything you’ve probably already been through.

But the process doesn’t have to be stressful. The law is in your side, and you can be eligible to make a claim for compensation when you’ve been the genuine victim of medical malpractice.

Here’s a quick guide about what you need to do and what you can do as part of a case, and how we can make the process nice and easy for you.

Can you claim medical malpractice compensation?

First, we must identify if we think you are eligible to claim for medical malpractice compensation. If you’re a resident of England or Wales, and something has gone wrong with a medical procedure, treatment or a diagnosis, you may have a case.

It’s all about identifying if an error has been made. Errors can encompass a number of things, such as:

  • Mistakes during surgery or treatment;
  • An incorrect or delayed diagnosis;
  • A failure to refer you for further investigation or treatment.

It’s all about whether things ought to have gone differently, and whether it was reasonable to say that whatever has happened to you was avoidable. Proving this comes down to using our own independent, privately instructed medical experts who can provide a report for the case.

What are the costs of claiming?

We can offer genuine No Win, No Fee representation for medical malpractice compensation claims. This means that, subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement, we can write off our legal fees if the claim doesn’t succeed.

Due to changes in the law that took place back in 2013, there are usually percentage deductions for claims where the case succeeds. For medical negligence and dental negligence cases, this is determined after a case assessment has been completed, which we can often do over the phone.

How do we make the process for claiming medical malpractice compensation easy?

There are so many ways we can make the process of making a claim for medical malpractice compensation as easy as possible for you.

  • Our specialism: we specialise in serious and complex cases, of which medical malpractice cases usually fit into this category;
  • Our approach: we are a professional law firm, but we do like to keep things informal at times and we like to build a good relationship with you. We achieve this by being friendly and easy to reach, which includes our extended evening and weekend opening hours;
