NHS mental health matters

sporting injury claims

NHS mental health matters are incredibly important to get right. The importance of quality help and support for those who are suffering due to the pressures and worries in life cannot be understated.

We are much more aware of the need to look after ourselves these days, and we are also living in a time where there are increasing pressures from a number of different things taking place all around us.

As lawyers, we have a lot of experience when it comes to mental injuries and how we can help those suffering from them.

The continued dangers of plastic medical mesh implants

doctor

The continued dangers of vaginal and hernia plastic medical mesh implants remain ongoing, yet both are still being used for procedures here in the UK and in other parts of the world.

Despite the known dangers, the thousands of people harmed by mesh devices, and the permanence that some can suffer from, patients are still undergoing these treatments.

Many do not know the severity of the consequences and complications that can arise. Some patients have fallen victim to poor treatment or surgery. Some have received inadequate aftercare and revision treatments. There are plenty of ways people can suffer, and we want to help in the only way that we can – with specialist legal representation.

Pelvic injury claims for compensation

workplace accidents

A pelvic injury can present the injured person with significant pain, discomfort and mobility issues. In the worst cases, they can leave the victim with permanent difficulties, which is why it is important that victims can seek justice where they have come to harm through the fault of someone else. Those who have sustained an injury to their pelvis due to the negligence of another person or a company could be eligible to pursue pelvic injury claims for compensation.

As specialists in injury claims, we have represented thousands of clients who have been injured due to the avoidable negligence of another party. Injuries can be frustrating enough in themselves, so it can feel like an even greater injustice when they are caused through no fault of your own.

We want to empower as many victims as possible to seek the justice they deserve. Anyone who needs expert advice and representation about a potential compensation claim can contact our expert team for free, no-obligation advice on their case.

Claim for a serious injury from a slip at work

slip injury compensation

Employers have a duty of care to their staff members in terms of maintaining a safe workplace, but some are more diligent in their responsibilities than others. It may seem simple to disregard a loose step or a wet floor, but these hazards can cause significant harm when they catch an employee off guard. If you have suffered a serious injury from a slip at work, you may be eligible for a compensation claim.

The law demands that employers adhere to strict health and safety regulations as a means of protecting their employees. Where they fail to do so, and an accident consequently occurs, the injured person can assert their rights with a personal injury claim.

As specialists in injury claims, we have represented many clients for workplace injury cases. We know it can feel daunting to make a claim against your employer, but they should have insurance for this exact purpose, so there should be nothing stopping you from bringing a case.

Ian Paterson compensation claims

Surgery compensation claims

The disgraced breast surgeon Ian Paterson is one of the most infamous medical practitioners in the UK. After practicing at public and private hospitals for many years, it was revealed that Paterson had reportedly been performing unnecessary or incomplete breast surgery on many patients. Gradually, more and more of Paterson’s former patients were contacted in relation to the potentially dangerous treatment and surgery they underwent at his hands. Now, it has been reported that a further 5,500 victims could be eligible to engage in the Ian Paterson compensation claims process.

Following a criminal case, Ian Paterson was reportedly found guilty on 17 counts of wounding with intent, plus a further 3 counts of wounding, for which he was sentenced to 20 years. His actions may have harmed thousands of patients, and it is concerning that he was able to get away with such dangerous treatment for so long.

As specialists in personal injury and medical negligence claims, we want to help those who were harmed by Ian Paterson to achieve the justice that they deserve. The traumatic procedures he subjected them to cannot always be reversed, but the hospitals who allowed such a doctor to continue practising can – and must – be held accountable.

Leg injury compensation claims

ankle injury compensation claims

Leg injuries are the subject of some of the most serious injury claims that we deal with, as these injuries can often severely incapacitate the people they affect. Whether they involve a temporary broken bone, or a long-term mobility issue, they can be serious. Regardless of the severity of the condition, those who have sustained a leg injury through no fault of their own may be able to make a leg injury compensation claim.

Our specialist injury claims solicitors want to make sure that all our clients receive the best possible pay-out, which is why we evaluate all the potential avenues of compensation as part of bringing your claim. We know that compensation cannot make up for the harm caused to you, but it can be comforting to know that the costs of dealing with your condition have been covered, and to know that the negligence that caused your injury has been accounted for.

Read on to find out more about how we can pursue leg injury compensation claims.

Spire Healthcare court case comes to conclusion

doctor

A private healthcare provider has been fined after it was found that it failed to notify patients of potential treatment failures and problems within a reasonable period of time. The Spire Healthcare court case has now led to a fine of £5,000 for the firm, which was also ordered to pay almost £15,000 in court costs.

The care provided by Michael Walsh, a former orthopaedic surgeon, was reviewed within Spire Healthcare in 2017 and later by an orthopaedic consultant in 2018. It has been reported that four affected patients were not made aware of the potentially negligent care until at least several months after the concerns were said to have been raised.

It is concerning that Spire Hospital Leeds delayed giving information to patients for so long, leaving them unaware of the reasons behind the pain they may have been experiencing following potentially harmful procedures. Healthcare organisations should always be transparent when it comes to medical negligence investigations, or they risk worsening the health and wellbeing of affected patients.
