Because Your Health Is Your Most Valuable Asset.

When you’re being treated by a qualified medical professional, you expect to be in good hands. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. From time to time, even the most experienced medical expert can get it wrong. Whether that’s due to bad judgement, fatigue, insufficient resources or simply a lack of care, medical negligence can and does happen.

What you can do about it

Fortunately, if it happens to you, there is something you can do about it. Medical negligence claims cover a vast range of conditions from minor complaints, such as prolonged discomfort from dental treatment, to life-altering symptoms resulting from complications after an operation.

Examples of medical negligence claims:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delay in diagnosis or treatment
  • Incorrect prescription of drugs
  • Infection or injury suffered during routine investigations
  • Complications arising from cosmetic surgery
  • Infections acquired whilst visiting a medical facility
  • A&E negligence

Understanding when medical negligence has occurred

Before you undergo treatment, the medical professional must give you a clear explanation of the procedure and what to expect before, during and after treatment. This is vitally important, so if something does go wrong, firstly, you know that it has happened and secondly, you can use this information to pursue a negligence claim.

Proceeding with a medical negligence claim

Bringing a medical negligence case to court can be daunting and fraught with legal technicalities, which is why it’s so important to get specialised advice from a legal expert. Here, at Bartletts Solicitors, we understand every case is different. That’s why our experienced medical negligence team won’t take on a case until we fully understand what’s involved. It’s this personal service that makes us different and gives you a better chance of success.

What you can claim for

If you do proceed, your claim can cover a number of factors. These include:

  • Medical costs
  • Expenses, including travel and accommodation costs, if relevant
  • Loss of income
  • General compensation for changes to your lifestyle

The time period for making a claim can depend on several factors, so it’s important that you contact a medical negligence expert at Bartletts Solicitors as soon as possible.
