Assessing if you can claim no win, no fee compensation

Below are some of the common questions we ask to determine whether you have a valid claim:

  • Did you first find out you have suffered as a result of medical negligence in the past 3 years? 
  • Are you now suffering due to this negligence?
  • Do you believe the medical professional could have acted in a way that would have prevented your injury or pain?

No matter how insignificant you think your experience might have been, any form of medical negligence is unacceptable.

We understand the ordeal you’ve been through, and want to help you get back on your feet and back to normal, as much as we can.

We can help you to receive the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

Common examples of medical negligence

Commonly, medical negligence claims are made for illness or injury caused or worsened due to mistakes during treatment, misdiagnosis, delayed treatment or incorrect treatment.

Regardless of the type of negligence you’ve suffered, if it has resulted in a further impact on your health, you can likely make a medical negligence claim.

Medical misdiagnosis

The term misdiagnosis covers the following:

  • Your condition is not diagnosed at all, so the problem continues to go unrecognised and untreated
  • Your diagnosis is incorrect, for example if you have a lump which is first diagnosed as a cyst but later found to be cancerous

If a misdiagnosis has caused you to suffer further, may that have been as a result of being given an unnecessary treatment, or because your actual condition has worsened, we can help you to claim compensation.

Delayed medical treatment

A delay in treatment could occur if you have been misdiagnosed, as you will likely either receive no treatment, or treatment for a different condition. You may also suffer a delay in receiving the needed treatment in other scenarios, for example when your medical professional has failed to refer you to a specialist when they should have.

In many cases, the time in which you are treated will have a serious impact on how long it will take for you to recover. A delay in treatment can therefore have serious consequences to your health. In worse cases, a delay in treatment can cause a disease to worsen, and even lead to permanent health conditions, disability or even death.

If you have suffered as a result of a delay in treatment, we can help you with your negligence compensation claim.

Failure to consider patient history

Your medical history should be considered when you are treated and diagnosed by your medical professional. If you suffer from a medical treatment for example as a result of your doctor mistakingly providing you with medication you’re allergic to, or missing a diagnosis because they have failed to read about how you have suffered from similar symptoms in the past, we can help you with your medical negligence compensation claim.

Our solicitors are experts in handling cases where medical professionals have failed to consider patient history, which resulted in physical harm.

Incorrect medical treatment

Incorrect treatment covers incidents such as medication or prescription errors as well as surgical mistakes.

For example, you may be prescribed a higher dosage of medication than you need which leads to you falling ill. You could also have been provided with the wrong medication, or medication you’re known to be allergic to.

Or, your surgeon might fail to effectively stitch a wound after your operation which leads to infection, causing further medical issues.

We want to help you to get compensated for your suffering so that you can focus on the road to recovery.
