What Is Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence is when medical professionals make mistakes or fail in their duty of care to you, leading to injury or making an existing condition worse. There are a number of ways that medical negligence can happen, such as misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment or surgical mistakes.
How Do You Make A Medical Negligence Claim?
The first step to making a medical negligence claim is to contact us as soon as possible. We offer a free initial consultation where we’ll be able to tell you if we think you have a case and how much compensation you might be able to claim.
Contacting us early allows us to start work on your case while the details are still fresh in your mind. If the NHS or private healthcare provider in question admits responsibility early then we may be able to get you interim compensation payments to help with your rehabilitation.
Interim payments are made ahead of your final compensation settlement and can help with some of the immediate daily living and medical costs you may be facing.
How Long Do Medical Negligence Claims Take?
How long it takes for a medical negligence case to settle will depend on a number of things – most important will be the severity of your injury and whether the NHS or private healthcare provider responsible accepts fault.
However, while we aim to settle medical negligence claims within a few months, more complicated cases can take a few years to settle.
