MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE CLAIMS
Medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence or medical malpractice) can occur at any time whilst you are receiving medical attention, from an initial GP visit, to surgery and aftercare. There are various ways in which this can happen; including misdiagnosis, mistakes made during surgery or being given incorrect treatment or medication.
All medical professionals have a duty of care towards their patients and once this duty of care is breached due to negligence then the medical body is usually held accountable. In processing a clinical negligence claim we could prevent the similar mistakes from happening again as the body in question will be examined and reported to the regulating authority.
At Advantage Solicitors we appreciate the inconvenience such medical negligence claims can have on individuals. As a result, we will endeavour to assess each case on its particular circumstances. We are here to provide physical, emotional, legal and financial support. Our team will always ensure the maximum amount of compensation is obtained and proper rehabilitation assistance provided.
If you or a loved one have experienced medical negligence, Advantage Solicitors can help you determine if you have a valid claim and provide support throughout the compensation process. Our team of experienced medical negligence solicitors has extensive knowledge in all areas of medical law and has handled a wide range of negligence cases.
We understand that the compensation process can be overwhelming, which is why we take the time to get to know you personally and fully understand your case. We’ll provide friendly, sympathetic, and practical advice, and we’ll do everything we can to make you feel comfortable discussing your medical issues.
To get started, we’ll help you submit an initial complaint and assess whether you have a valid claim. If you decide to pursue compensation, we’ll work with you to put funding in place, whether that’s through an insurance policy or a no-win, no-fee arrangement. We’ll then gather all the necessary evidence, including medical records and documentation, to support your claim.
While the majority of claims are settled out of court, it’s important to have a good relationship with your solicitor in case your case does go to court. We’ll keep you informed every step of the way and make sure you understand the process.
If you’re considering making a complaint against your healthcare provider, you may have questions about how it could affect ongoing treatment or your relationship with medical staff, as well as the costs and timescales involved.
We offer a free, initial telephone consultation to provide answers to your questions and help you understand the claims process.
