Have I got a claim?

A patient is entitled to claim compensation if, as a result of medical malpractice, they have been injured or their condition has been made worse.

We need to demonstrate more than that you might have got better treatment elsewhere. We need to show that no reasonably competent doctor/hospital would have provided you with the standard of treatment you received, or would have failed to provide you with the treatment you required. We will be able to advise you whether this applies in your particular case.

Negligence can arise in a number of ways from failure to diagnose/treat a condition, inappropriate treatment, to failure to obtain valid consent from the patient.

Examples of types of claims that we handle are:-
