The NHS and Medical Mistakes

The NHS has a duty of care towards patients.  NHS negligence occurs when that duty is breached, whether by the hospital, a doctor, or other medical professional.  Poor care or mistakes such as a failure to investigate symptoms properly, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose or a delay in diagnosis or treatment are just some examples of what can go wrong.

If you have suffered injury and you think a medical professional may have been negligent call us to find out if you can bring a claim.  If negligence has caused you an injury then we will obtain the compensation that you are entitled to.  

How We Can Help with NHS Negligence Claims

Our excellent track record of successfully recovering compensation for clients who have been injured as a result of NHS medical mistakes and our access to a panel of expert barristers who have many years’ experience of dealing with NHS claims means that you will be in safe hands.

We will try to find answers to what went wrong and why and although money won’t be the first thing on your mind it can make a difficult situation more bearable.   As well as compensation for the injury and pain you have suffered you are entitled to recover any loss of earnings – past and future.  Compensation is also available to fund the cost of rehabilitation to help you recover more quickly.   Private physiotherapy treatment can be arranged at no cost to you and compensation obtained to pay for adaptations to your home and /or car if needed.  

Personal injury claims and interim payments 

Although every case is different, in some instances it can take a while for an injury to settle.  In some cases we can apply for an interim payment on your behalf.   This means that you will receive some of your compensation before your case concludes, rather than waiting until the case has finished.     

Expert clinical negligence solicitors

We can’t turn back the clock but we can take away the worry and stress of bringing a claim, knowing that there will be no financial consequences for you.   

The NHS only pays out claims when investigations show that it is at fault.  The vast majority of claims are settled out of Court and if your claim does not succeed there is no risk to you.

Compensation for Medical or Clinical Negligence

According to one source* the NHS has paid out over £4.5 billion pounds over the past five years as a result of medical negligence claims.   These figures make disturbing reading as they demonstrate just how much suffering is being caused to ordinary people when things go wrong.    

It is a fact that mistakes by doctors, nurses or other medical staff that should never have happened can have serious and long-term consequences for patients and their families.  Life-limiting injuries such as brain injuries or amputations to limbs are sometimes the result of a medical error.  If the poor care, error or neglect results in a patient’s death it can be truly devastating for the family left behind.  If requested to do so by the next of kin, one of our solicitors will attend and represent the family if there is a Coroner’s Inquest.
