Suing A Hospital for Negligence

If you are considering suing a hospital for negligence, what should you do and who should you ask for help? Read on to find out more.

When you are admitted to hospital you expect to receive a level of service and care that will ensure that you are put on the road to recovery from your injury or illness as soon as possible. Very often, this is the case and patients do receive a high level of care and treatment from the NHS whose expertly qualified staff do everything they can to provide a level of treatment which will diagnose or treat the injury or illness that the patient is suffering. Unfortunately, however, this is not always the case. On some occasions, however, an act or omission of incompetence and/or negligence on the part of the NHS can lead to further injury or illness for the patient who then becomes a victim of medical negligence and may be entitled to sue the hospital. This article provides information on suing a hospital including common reasons why people to choose to sue a hospital, what initial steps you need to take when deciding to sue a hospital and choosing the right solicitor when suing a hospital.

There are many reasons why people choose to sue a hospital. These include misdiagnosis of an injury or illness (for example, a misdiagnosis of cancer or an undiagnosed broken ankle), an operation which has been performed inadequately, a caesarean section which has gone wrong, delays or misjudgements during labour leading to illness or injury of the baby, failed sterilisation or vasectomy, brain injury and dental negligence.

If you think you have been a victim of medical negligence and are thinking of suing a hospital, you should together as much information as possible to support your potential claim. This can include medical notes, x-rays, records of telephone conversations and your own detailed account of events. Medical negligence can be an extremely complex area of law and suing a hospital is not always straightforward. However, if you have a strong case to show that the hospital staff treating you have been negligent then you deserve to be compensated for the injury or illness you have sustained as a result of that negligence. Usually in medical negligence and personal injury claims you have three years from the date of the accident or incident in which to pursue a claim. Often, however, in medical negligence cases the three year time limit starts from the date upon which the cause of the injury or illness being suffered by the victim was identified as being the negligent act or omission of the treating medical professional.

As soon as you start considering suing a hospital you should contact an expert, medical negligence claims solicitors to seek advice and guidance on pursuing a claim. Our 1stClaims expert medical negligence solicitors can offer you a free, no obligation consultation and will advise you on your chances of pursuing a successful claim.
