Fortunately, most visits to hospital end in a positive outcome. For example, you may have received treatment for an injury you sustained whilst playing football, you may have been cared for as an impatient for an illness such as pneumonia or you may have just given birth to your first child. Most of the time, patients receive a very high level of care and treatment from the NHS staff treating them and do not have any cause to make a complaint against the hospital or pursue a claim. However, unfortunately, this is not always the case. On some occasions patients are subjected to negligence by the part of the NHS.
This article looks at common reasons why people decide to sue the NHS and need the help of an NHS solicitor. If you think you may have been a victim of medical negligence by the NHS, how do you choose the right NHS solicitor for your claim?
There are many, many different circumstances of medical negligence which lead to the victim making a claim for compensation. If you think you have been the victim of NHS medical negligence you should contact an NHS solicitor as soon as possible. You should gather up as much evidence you can which supports your claim of medical negligence. This could include a documented account, in your own words, of events leading up to the alleged negligence - and the event itself, records of telephone conversations and consultations, copies of medical notes and copies of x-rays.
Some solicitors will offer to act for you on a No Win No Fee (NOTE: If your case is successful your Solicitor will deduct up to a maximum of 25% of your final settlement or compensation award as payment for their fees. You can find out more about No Win No Fee arrangements and the potential costs that can be incurred by clicking here.) basis. You should do your research and choose an NHS solicitor who has expert knowledge of medical negligence claims and specialises in that particular area of the law. Medical negligence cases can often be very complex and it is important that you choose an NHS solicitor who is highly experienced and, therefore, more likely to bring your claim to a successful conclusion.
