What Medical Negligence Claims We Deal With
If you have encountered personal injury following a routine medical procedure, or you have been misdiagnosed leading to additional health complications, you could be entitled to make a no win no fee claim for medical negligence compensation.
“Malpractice” and “clinical negligence” are both terms used to describe the questionable conduct of a medical professional, as well as any treatment resulting in unnecessary pain or suffering. Medical negligence claims can be made irrespective of whether you received treatment on the NHS, or from a private practitioner, and can be made against an individual or department.
Medical negligence claims might include:
- Misdiagnoses : leading to unnecessary complications or sickness.
- Birth injury: where a child has suffered due to a compromised labour or forceps delivery.
- Medical liability: where an individual has contracted a non-relative infection or disease during treatment.
- Unusual side effects: chronic symptoms as a result of treatment/ surgery you were not told about.
- Cerebral palsy: caused by a difficult birth.
- Brain injury: where an individual has suffered at birth, or as a result of medical failure.
- Fatality: due to medical error or misdiagnosis
- Delayed diagnosis: leading to additional, possibly preventable health complications

Standards of health-care provision in the UK are generally considered to be quite high, but this does not prevent errors occurring. Unlike many professions, the duty of care and responsibility a medical professional must possess have a direct impact on the treatment of patients. Occasionally, the expected level of care falls below par, and can have dire repercussions for the patient involved. A simple mis-diagnosis may lead to complex health problems which further incapacitate an individual, thus causing him/ her to require extra time off work, or even take redundancy. The health implications alone are difficult to deal with, but when coupled with spiraling bills vs. reduced income, spell disaster in the longterm.
Our medical negligence claims specialists are committed to raising the standards of general practice and care in the medical industry. By making a claim, you could be helping to prevent future mistakes that pose a threat to the wellbeing of other patients.
