If you or a loved one have been let down by an NHS professional who has failed in their duty of care and this has caused an injury or even death, you may be able to claim compensation.
SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS
We provide Clinical Negligence services in the following areas:
The NHS delivers a fantastic service to millions of patients across the UK every single year and most of the time, there are no issues with the treatments and other services they provide. However, sometimes mistakes do unfortunately happen and the consequences of this can be potentially life changing for the patient and their loved ones.
If you have been let down by an NHS professional and their negligence has caused you further injury, significant suffering or has made an existing condition worse, you may be eligible for compensation. No sum of money can turn back the clock on what has happened, but the compensation awarded for a successful NHS negligence claim can potentially help you to move forwards with your life.
Whilst negligence with NHS medical care is rare, there are some types of issues and mistakes that could result in you being made more ill, suffering an avoidable injury or otherwise have a serious negative impact on your life and health. These can include:
The first stage of any potential NHS negligence claim is to consult with an expert solicitor who can determine whether or not you have a valid claim.
If so, and you choose to proceed, your solicitor will explain the process and what to expect next, and also discuss potential funding options with you. In many cases when you sue the NHS, it's possible to make a claim on a no win, no fee basis, which means that if your claim for compensation is not successful, you won't need to pay any legal fees.
