If you have received substandard care at a private or NHS hospital and you are injured as a result, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries.

Going to hospital can be a particularly distressing time, and can cause people to worry. Fortunately accidents rarely happen and patients are given the care they require. In some instances however, patients in hospitals can be neglected and the care they are supposed to receive is of a poor standard, resulting in injuries or worse.

Types of Hospital Negligence Claims

You or a loved one may have been neglected for long periods of time whilst in hospital, or you may have suffered due to misdiagnosis. There are many aspects of hospital negligence that victims can claim compensation for, the most notable regarding:

  • Patients Suffering Errors During Surgery
  • Needle Related Injuries
  • Substandard Care During Childbirth Leading To Complications
  • Misdiagnosis of Injuries or Illness Resulting in Further Injury or Complications
  • Prescription Errors
  • Dehydration
  • Failure to take patients history into account
  • Failure to note symptoms
  • Failure to operate when necessary
  • Failure to notice when a patient gets worse
  • Pressure sores
