Who Can I Sue?
Having had a bad experience with a medical institution or medical professional which resulted in harm, injury or loss as a direct result of their negligent actions you will rightfully be wondering whether you can sue them for medical negligence. The following are some examples of individuals and institutions that 1st Claims can help you gain medical negligence compensation from. Negligence claims result from an individual/institution breaching their professional duty to you. In the case of medical negligence the negligent party will have behaved in a way which it is deemed a reasonable body of medical professionals would not have. All medical professionals and institutions will be expected to perform at a reasonable standard.
Every day we trust GPs with our health and the health of our family and friends. When something goes wrong it can be devastating. 1st Claims can help you pursue a claim for negligent acts such as failure to diagnose, prescribing errors and wrongful diagnosis. Find out more about suing your doctor.
It may be the case that you have experienced medical negligence which has come as a result of the malpractice of an institution.

If an individual is in care, whatever age they are, it will be because they cannot look after themselves properly on their own anymore. Therefore they need the staff looking after them to be sensitive to their needs. If an individual has been maltreated, or has received substandard care, this will be utterly devastating for their families.
