Medical negligence solicitors - what do you need to know?

Medical negligence* claims are often complex claims requiring the advice of a specialist medical negligence solicitor. These solicitors will have experience of medical negligence claims and will be able to help you with with your claim.

Who can you claim against?

All medical professionals have a duty of care to ensure your medical treatment is carried out to the standard expected. If you have suffered from medical negligence and you believe your GP, surgeon, specialist, nurse, dentist or hospital is at fault, you may be entitled to compensation. You should speak to a medical negligence lawyer about making a medical negligence claim.

What can you claim for?

Medical negligence claims can be for injuries and losses due to misdiagnosis, late diagnosis, inadequate treatment, careless treatment, incorrect treatment, and serious surgical errors.

The severity of injuries range from minor disabilities, such as an incorrectly set broken limb, to death and serious disabilities from serious medical error or misjudgement.

Depending on your circumstances, you and your family may be able to win compensation for pain and suffering, loss of amenity, medical expenses, loss of earnings and the cost of care, housing and social needs, for now and into the future.
