Clinical Negligence

If you have been injured or suffered long-lasting suffering as a result of the failures of those in charge of your care, you may be entitled to make a clinical negligence claim.

We work closely with a team of experts to help clients recover from their injuries, return to work and get their lives back on track. We understand that rehabilitation is a key force in helping that happen.

What is clinical negligence?

Clinical negligence relates to the care administered by doctors and other healthcare professionals. If the treatment provided by this type of professional represents a breach of their legal duty of care, it may be possible for a claim to be brought against the professional or their employer.

In order for a claim to be brought successfully, your solicitor will need to know:

  • The healthcare professional owed a duty of care to the patient
  • That this duty of care was breached
  • This breach resulted in the patient being caused some level of harm
  • The harm caused resulted in financial damages or other losses

What are the different types of clinical negligence?

Clinical or medical negligence is an incredibly complex and personal area of the law. Our specialist solicitors treat all claims with the utmost care and sensitivity, and we will assign solicitors with specific experience to each claim.

We have handled many cases, including:

Why should I claim compensation?

Claiming compensation is often the only way of rectifying the damage that has been caused by the negligence of a medical professional. Compensation allows the person who has been injured to better cope with the changes to their life, and to cover any other financial losses they have suffered as a result of the incident.

The losses can be varied, but will likely include any money that has been lost due to being unable to work for a prolonged period.

Making a claim can help to achieve more than claiming compensation, and there is often much more that this can help patients with that they may not realise.

It can:

  • Help hold those responsible to account
  • Raise awareness of the dangers of certain procedures
  • Protect others from suffering the same injuries
  • Ensure lessons are learned and mistakes are not repeated
