Medical negligence injuries can be both physically and mentally painful because they are caused by those with whom the victims place a huge amount of trust. As a result a compensation claim can be made for both physical and psychological injuries.

Medical negligence injuries are those caused by medical professionals such as doctors, surgeons and dentists. A compensation claim can be made because medical professionals have a duty of care towards the health and safety of those under their care.

Medical negligence injuries can take many forms and the following are a list of some of the most common:

•    Injuries to a mother and / or child during child birth
•    Surgical errors
•    Misdiagnosis
•    Incorrect diagnosis
•    Prescription of the wrong medicine

Medical Negligence Claims Lawyers

Medical negligence claims are usually paid out by the medical professional’s insurance company and can be for a substantial amount. The amount awarded will depend on a number of factors including the seriousness of the injury, the degree of negligence (which will be established with the assistance of independent medical professionals), government guidelines and the amount of compensation awarded in previously decided cases. In addition, claims can also be made for any consequential loss such as loss of income, medical expenses including prescriptions, travel expenses, care costs and alterations to the home.

A medical negligence claim should be made with the assistance of a specialised solicitor** as they are different to normal personal injury claims and are far more complex. For example, they require experience with reading medical reports and understanding medical terms. This does not make medical negligence claims expensive as medical negligence solicitors** will still work on a no win no fee* basis.

If you would like to make a medical negligence claim then you should speak to our specialist medical negligence professional solicitors in Bristol within three years of the date of the accident or in the case of a child within three years of their 18th birthday. Any claim brought outside of this time period may be barred unless special permission has been obtained from the court.
