NHS negligence claims

Our clinical negligence solicitors have years of experience dealing with NHS negligence claims. Because of this we know how receiving negligent NHS treatment can affect your life. That’s why from the very start we’ll be beside you, offering expert guidance and support.

If you, or a member of your family, had a bad experience with the NHS, which resulted in:

  • your illness not being diagnosed or treated causing you to be ill for longer, or
  • it took longer for you to heal from your illness or injury due to a mistake or a misdiagnosis, or
  • you received treatment that caused further avoidable illness or injury, or
  • unnecessary long waiting times caused symptoms to worsen, 

we can help you claim compensation which will hep you to move forward with your life.

Guidance through your NHS negligence claim

When we visit our GP or the hospital we put our trust in our doctors and nurses, and assume that they are experts in their field.

While this is mostly true, we should remember that they are only human like you and I, and humans can make mistakes.

Errors can happen for a range of reasons, such as understaffing or overworking, leaving health professionals tired and prone to making mistakes.

Minor mistakes or delays in treatment usually won’t cause you any harm, but some mistakes can really disrupt your life.

What is considered NHS negligence?

Examples of medical mistakes might be:

  • A GP fails to refer a patient to a cancer specialist. Three months later they agree to refer them, by which time the cancer has progressed and spread.
  • A doctor prescribes someone a high dose of the wrong medication which makes them seriously ill and hospitalises them

Scenarios like these will clearly cause physical and emotional pain and suffering for you and your relatives. We are here to help you sue the NHS for negligence so you can look forward to your future.

We are here to help you move forward

We know claiming against the NHS not feel like the most important thing to you right now because you rightfully want to focus on getting better.

However, with our help you can do just that whilst also being free of financial worry.

We understand that a bad medical experience can have a huge impact on your life, so believe that no matter what, you should be able to hold those responsible for your suffering accountable.

With every client, no matter what the issue, our team are very supportive and understanding.

Pursuing an NHS negligence claim

We understand that the thought of confronting an organisation as big as the NHS can be daunting, but our specialists will make you feel at ease.

If you have suffered financially due to medical negligence, we’ll talk to you to determine what financial support you’ll need to live comfortably again. We focus on current and future losses, so you don’t have to worry about the future.

We will also review your medical records and arrange an independent medical examination to assess the extent of the damage to your health.

If you have been unable to work as a result of the negligence you experienced, your loss of earnings will be calculated into your compensation amount.

We’ll always make sure you have the support you need because we want you to feel at ease, so we’ll do our best to make sure this is the case from the very start.
