Going to hospital for any reason can be worrying, whether it is visiting A&E after an accident or being admitted to hospital for an operation or because you are ill.
Whatever the reason, although you may feel worried and concerned this will mostly be because of your illness not because you are worried about the treatment you will receive.
Thankfully, for most of us the treatment we receive is second to none, however for a small minority, their care falls below an acceptable standard. This means that there may be a medical negligence claim to be made.
If you have been injured or a family member has died as a result of medical negligence, you can make a claim for compensation. Please call us on 01264 353411 to find out more about how we can help.
What Is Medical Negligence?
There are three things that need to be present in any medical negligence claim. The first is that the medical team owed you a duty of care. Duty of care is a legal term which means they owed you some responsibility to make sure you were OK. The second thing is that they breached that duty of care and lastly, that you suffered a loss as a result.
This means that even if the care you received fell way below the standard you should expect, if you did not suffer an injury as a result of the negligent care, you do not have a claim.
This may seem complicated, but we can tell you almost immediately whether you have a medical negligence claim, so get in touch today, we can help.
