NHS Compensation

Have You Suffered At The Hands Of The NHS? What Can You Do About It And What Are Your Legal Rights?

When you are ill or have suffered an injury, you turn to the NHS to obtain the correct advice and treatment to ensure that you recover in such a way that you do not experience any further complications and can get back to leading a normal life as soon as possible. We put our faith in the in the medical professionals treating us and expect to receive the most appropriate method of treatment and and care for illness or injury we are suffering from. It is usually the case that when you visit your GP or are seen by another medical professional in a hospital, an appropriate course of treatment or surgery is administered and your recovery takes place without any problems. Unfortunately, however, this is not always how things turn out.

If you have received negligent treatment at the hands of any NHS professional, then you may have had your recovery prolonged or you may now be suffering from complications or a completely new injury or illness which has been caused by the negligent treatment you have received. This can be a harrowing time as the last thing you expect when you seek medical advice from the professionals is to come away with more complicated medical issues.

Types Of NHS Compensation Claims

There are many ways in which medical professionals can act negligently in the way they treat you and if you have been the victim of any sort of medical negligence then you are entitled to make a claim for medical negligence compensation.

Our solicitors are specialists in pursuing NHS claims and have a vast amount of experience in successfully representing claimants who have been the victim of all types of medical negligence. Our expert solicitors have experience in the following types of medical negligence matters:

  • Incorrect diagnosis of a serious injury or illness;
  • Failure to diagnose a serious injury or illness, such as cancer;
  • Injuries caused to a mother or newborn baby due to negligent actions of the medical profession during labour;
  • Incorrect or inadequate medication being prescribed leading to complications;
  • Brain injuries resulting from negligent acts or omissions on the part of the medical professionals;
  • A delay in treatment being administered leading to the injury or illness becoming aggravated.

The examples listed above are just a few examples of the types of medical negligence claims that our solicitors have successfully dealt with.
