Medical Negligence Compensation

If you have, or a loved one has, recently been unwell or has sustained an injury you may have had cause to seek medical advice and treatment from your local Accident & Emergency department or your GP. It is usually the case that upon visiting the medical professionals for medical advice and treatment the injured or ill patient is then equipped with the appropriate advice or medication to set them on the road to recovery. Unfortunately, however, on some occasions an act or omission of negligence on the part of the treating medical professional can lead to additional injuries or illness, a deterioration in the current symptoms or other complications. In such cases the patient may have cause to make a claim for compensation for medical negligence.

Our expert 1stClaims solicitors specialise in claims for compensation for medical negligence arising from a wide variety of acts or omissions of negligence by medical professionals. Our 1stClaims solicitors have successfully pursued claims for medical negligence, and negotiated damages awards, for thousands of victims.

Compensation For Medical Negligence?

You might be wondering how much compensation you will receive for your medical negligence claim? 1stClaims have helped clients with claims from a few thousand pounds to well over £1,000,000. Every medical negligence claim is different, but by their very nature they usually attract much larger awards of compensation than other types of injury claims.

When you contact 1stClaims to find out whether you may be entitled to make a claim for medical negligence compensation, you will be entitled to a free, no obligation discussion with one of our specialist medical negligence solicitors. They will assess the circumstances of your case, answer any questions you may have and advise you on your chances of pursuing a successful claim and also the likely amount of compensation that you will receive.

Here are some examples of medical negligence compensation claim amounts (remember these amounts are for the pain and suffering - the larget parts of the claim are normally for associated losses and expenses):

  • Amputation - up to approximately £180,000
  • Brain Damage - up to approximately £250,000
  • Cancer misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis - up to approximately £90,000
  • Dental injuries - up to approximately £7,250
