Clinical & Medical Negligence claims
When we require medical advice and treatment, we look to the professionals for their expertise and advice. Unfortunately, when mistakes happen it can lead to unnecessary pain and suffering, and very often financial loss. If that happens to you, you may wish to make a clinical negligence claim.
If you find yourself in the position of needing to make a clinical negligence claim, we will take time to understand what you are experiencing and help you get the answers and compensation you deserve.
As well as compensation for the past and future physical and mental effects of an injury suffered as a result of medical negligence, claimants are also entitled to recover in respect of any direct financial loss suffered, for instance:
- Private medical treatment
- Loss of earnings, both past and future
- Loss of pension
- Care, even if provided by family members
- Amendments to accommodation
- Aids and equipment purchased to make life easier
- Travel and prescription costs
