Medical Negligence Claims

If you have been in care at the hands of a medical professional and you feel that they have failed to provide proper care and treatment resulting in further injury, illness or disease. You may have a legal entitlement to make a medical negligence compensation claim for injuries suffered through medical negligence.


What Is A Medical Negligence Claim?

Medical Negligence claims differ from personal injury claims as they can be more difficult to prove. In these cases, we must be able to prove that the healthcare professional has failed in their duty of care towards the patient and has not acted responsibly and provided the correct treatment or advice.

We must also prove that the failure of providing treatment and/or advice has caused the patient to suffer from an illness, disease, or harm which may have otherwise been avoided.

Our experienced medical negligence solicitors and barristers have already helped hundreds of victims all over England & Wales.

Frequently Asked Questions

You typically have around 3 years to start your personal injury claim and the time is counted from the date of your accident. If the date of your accident is approaching limitation, we can apply for an extension in most cases to ensure you do not lose the right to claim.
There are exceptions to the three-year rule in some cases, so if you think you might have a claim we advise you to contact us as soon as possible so we can determine your chances for successful compensation.

If you are making a claim for an accident at work then there are 3 main exceptions to the three-year rule:

  • Mental Capacity – if your loved one no longer has the mental capacity to make a claim themselves
  • Working Abroad – if your accident happened while you were working abroad.
  • Defective Work Equipment – if your injury was caused by equipment that had a manufacturing defect.

The amount of compensation varies depending on the type of accident, the severity of the illness or injury, and the individual situation as each person can be affected differently.

As the amount varies case to case, our personal injury solicitors can assess your situation and provide you with a more accurate quote. For a quick estimate on how much you could be entitled to, why not visit our claims calculator?

Special damages:

  • Travel Expenses
  • Medical Care & Prescription Costs
  • Rehabilitation
  • Loss of Earnings
  • Household Assistance & Adaptations
  • Vehicle Damage
  • Vehicle Hire, Storage & Recovery Charges
  • Any other out-of-pocket expenses
