Medical compensation claims

Clinical negligence claims are often highly complex. If you have suffered as a result of negligence at a hospital or GP surgery, our specialist clinical negligence solicitors will investigate your medical negligence claim thoroughly and independently. Contact one of our specialist lawyers for a free initial consultation to find out if we can investigate your case with the financial security of a no win no fee agreement.

When can you make a compensation claim for general medical problems?

We put our health in the hands of hospital clinicians and GPs and we expect them to take good care of us. It comes as a shock when things go wrong but, if they do, you may be able to claim compensation.

Making a claim can get you the compensation you deserve for the treatment you need. You are entitled to claim compensation for clinical negligence if:

  • you have been injured or your condition has been made worse as a result of medical negligence
  • the treatment provided by a healthcare professional fell below a generally accepted standard and caused physical or psychiatric injury.

Medical negligence can arise from:

  • inappropriate treatment (e.g. prescription errors)
  • delay or failure to diagnose or treat a condition (e.g. meningitis, abscess, peretonitis)
  • failure to obtain valid consent (e.g. for surgery)
  • complications as a result of being in hospital (e.g. hospital acquired infections, pressure sores)
  • complications arising from treatment (e.g. defective medical products, complications from laproscopic treatment)
  • Mismanagement of a range of long term conditions (for example diabetes)

Medical negligence claims can relate to anywhere you receive treatment (e.g. in the A&E or haematology departments of a hospital, a GP surgery, a dentist surgery or in a care home for the elderly).

  • Dominique has been very supportive - and patient - throughout the process. I have often found it difficult, and because of stress and other circumstances in my life I have often taken a long time to face up to the situation and complete things that need to be done.
