If you have suffered injury or harm as a result of Medical Negligence, you may be entitled to make a claim. Here at Pryers Solicitors we have one of the largest and most experienced medical legal teams in the north of England. We are dedicated to helping injured patients and their relatives.
Medical Negligence, sometimes known as clinical negligence, is the term used to describe a breach of duty of care by a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional. If you or a relative have been let down by poor care, bad advice, negligent treatment or lack of action, it is possible that you can make a claim for medical compensation.
Medical Negligence claims are made up of a series of hurdles. If you do not clear one hurdle then you do not move onto the next.
The first step is to obtain the medical notes, records, x-rays, scans etc… and check them. We have assistance from expert nurses to assist in the collation of these records. Specialist medical experts will then be instructed to consider whether or not the treatment was negligent, and if it was, what damage the treatment has caused.
At the same time as the above, we are in correspondence with the defendant’s solicitor in trying to persuade them that there is a case for medical negligence. Medical Negligence cases can often be settled by negotiation without the need to proceed to a full trial. If it is not possible to settle the claim through negotiations then court proceedings will be necessary.
Medical Negligence cases can be very expensive because of the number of specialists involved and the detailed work required. Our funding page will give you the information you need in relation to how medical negligence claims are paid for.
