Medical Mistakes, errors, problems - Medical Negligence Solicitors

How a solicitor can help

Mistakes do happen and the majority of medical mistakes do little, or no harm, and sometimes would not even be noticed by you, but unfortunately, not everybody is so lucky. Every day people suffer serious injury and sometimes die because of medical mistakes and poor care by health care professionals.

Making a claim

Sometimes there is a very real need to seek financial recompense, especially if a child has suffered a severe brain injury and is dependent upon specialist care for life, or if a child loses a parent. We will help you to secure a financial settlement that will provide meet your immediate needs and provide both financial security and the support you will need to move forward. This may include case management, rehabilitation, future medical care, or funeral costs, to name a few.

Before making a claim we can guide you through the complaints process, and whilst it may not be possible to pursue a claim, the complaints process could provide you with an explanation and an apology which may address your concerns. This will also allow the health care provider an opportunity to consider the care that they provided, identify areas of poor practice, learn from their mistakes and adopt a higher standard of care through amended policies and protocols.

If you have suffered an injury or loss as a result of a medical mistake then you may be able to claim compensation for a number of different things:

  • pain and suffering
  • loss of past and future earnings
  • cost of care and assistance
  • prescription and medical charges
  • cost of assistance for household help
  • travelling expenses
  • adapted accommodation and transport
  • out-of-pocket expenses
  • special care aids and appliances
