Before making a claim it is worth taking note of the following point.
Check that your medical issues are grounds for negligence, and not a simple complaint procedure. Complaints about procedure dissatisfaction, or seeking an apology / admission for lack of care / treatment should go to PALS.
When you might have a claim
Injury, continuous pain or loss due to the act of a practitioner or general lack of care at the NHS is an entirely different matter. You might very well have a claim. The duty of care might have been breached meaning the health care professional/s did not provide the expected level of care. If you believe you deserve compensation you may have a medical negligence claim.
How to start your claim
After contacting us we look into a few things
- Was the medical practitioner/s involved in your diagnosis at fault to the extent that your treatment & level of service fell below the expected level recognised by law.
- Did you receive actual harm / injury as a direct result of that lack of care / misdiagnosis
- Although there are some exceptions to the rule you must bring a case to claim within (3 Years) 36 months from the time of the incident / harm occurred. Our solicitors can still advise in situations that have fallen beyond the 36 month limitation. Start your claim here.
