Clinical Negligence

While standards of healthcare in the UK are generally very high, this doesn’t mean that things can’t go wrong – and when they do, the consequences can be devastating. At worst, clinical negligence can result in the death of a loved one.

Mistakes can include:

  • A missed or delayed diagnosis, which can be particularly serious in the case of an aggressive cancer where prompt treatment is key to recovery;
  • Overlooking a symptom which could lead to an incorrect diagnosis;
  • A surgical procedure may have been botched, causing serious injury with potentially life-changing consequences;
  • Negligence or failure of care by a hospital, including birth injuries;
  • The outcome of medical treatment not being what was intended – for example, medication causing long-term damage.

While such mistakes are thankfully rare, it only takes one error by a healthcare professional to cause serious injury – for example, brain damage – resulting in long-term adverse effects, such as no longer being able to work or having to rely on care from others.

In such cases, compensation may be needed for long-term financial security, so that you know that your needs, or those of a loved one, will be met into the future.

Our member firms have been able to secure damages payments for clients consisting of both a lump sum and an annual tax-free payment for life, offering the peace of mind that comes with knowing that they or their loved ones will be provided for in the future.

If the patient is left unable to manage their own affairs as a result of their injuries then our specialist clinical negligence solicitors are also about to help with matters relating to the Court of Protection.

Should the worst happen to a loved one, we can help you get the answers you need by providing expert representation at an inquest.
