Anyone who has been the victim of any sort of clinical negligence might be entitled to make a claim. However, without the correct professional advice, it can seem like an impossible task because it is well known that this type of case is often a very complex affair. A lot of documentation is required when lodging a claim which includes proving that a medical error was indeed the cause of any pain, suffering and loss a person may have had to endure.
The paperwork involved in clinical negligence claims is tremendous, it’s difficult to know what to keep
Having a Professional Handle a Malpractice Claim
The paperwork alone can be daunting when it comes to lodging a clinical negligence claim. This is often enough to put most people off from proceeding with what is a justifiable claim if they try to do it on their own. This is where professional help comes into its own. With the help of a medical negligence solicitor who knows how to assess your claim things do get a lot easier. They are experts when it comes to collating all the necessary medical documentation and they also organise for an independent medical report to be done which would involve a medical professional examining the person, their medical records and the medical treatment they received at the hands of a healthcare professional.
No Win, No Fee Basis
Today, you can make a clinical negligence claim on a “No Win, No Fee” basis with many medical injury solicitors offering people this option so they receive the kind of compensation they deserve. This can make it a lot easier for people because it takes a lot of the stress and anxiety of how a case will be paid for bearing in mind that a clinical negligence case typically involves a lengthy and expensive legal process.
Most times the care is great, but when it isn’t a clinical negligence claim is an option
When Can You Claim For Clinical Negligence
Anyone who believes they have suffered as a result of a healthcare professional’s clinical negligence can have their cases assessed by a medical negligence solicitor. Should the solicitor believe there is a justifiable case, they will then advise on the best course of action to take with the end goal being to receive the right level of compensation for the pain or injury suffered.
When people are ill, they place their complete trust in a medical professional. If things go wrong, and not matter how careful a doctor or other healthcare professional is, mistakes do happen. The result often causes pain and suffering to people whether it is short-term or long-term for which they are entitled to compensation. Some examples for clinical negligence include the following:
- Delays or incorrect diagnosis
- Improper conduct
- Incorrect type of treatment
- Negligence in surgical procedures
- Medical accidents
Compensation for Financial Loss
Not only is a person entitled to claim compensation for the pain, suffering and injuries they have received through clinical negligence but they can also claim for financial loss which they suffered as a direct result of the clinical negligence too. If a person has been mistreated by a healthcare professional, the law is on their side 100%. However, all medical negligence claims need to be assessed in order to see if they are “justifiable” and preferably assessed by an expert solicitor.
If you believe you have been the victim of any sort of mistreatment at the hands of a healthcare professional, whether it’s a doctor, dentist or other, you could be entitled to the right level of compensation. However, your claim would need to be assessed by a clinical injury solicitor who would then be able to advise you on whether you have a “justifiable” case or not. Once this has been established, an expert solicitor would be able to handle your claim on a no win, no fee basis.
