    Hospital  Negligence 

    A hospital visit can be for a number of reasons, including a GP referral, an out of hours visit or for surgery. Many of us have, at some point in our lives, needed to go to hospital. We have received the necessary care and treatment that we require, and then continued about our life. Hospital visits are generally never easy for anyone, but when we need to visit, the least we can expect is to be cared for.

    Sadly, not all hospital visits run the ay they should. The consequences of a mistake from a medical professional can have devastating consequences on you. This can be extremely life changing, and in worse cases it can be life threatening, leaving you mentally and physically traumatised.

    If a mistake has been made, whether that is in surgery, in medication, or in diagnosis then you may be entitled to claim compensation.


    There are many different types of hospital negligence claims. Some of the more common ones can include:-

    1. Misdiagnosis.
    2. Surgical errors or after care negligence.
    3. Delays in surgery or treatment.
    4. Undergoing the wrong type of treatment.
    5. Incorrect medication being administered.
    6. Catching an infection in the hospital.

    These are some of the most common hospital negligence claims, and although yours may not be mentioned on the list above, you may still be entitled to claim compensation. If you have any queries, or you would like further advice or information on making a hospital negligence claim, then call our specialist team today on 0121 8276 446.


    Who pays for hospital negligence claims?

    If you have a hospital negligence claim, we are on hand to help you. Out team of specialist advisors are available at all times to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision on claiming compensation. We will never force or coerce you into making a claim, even after we have given you all the advice you need.

    The claims are dealt with on a no win no fee basis. This means there are no upfront costs, and in the event that your case was to fail, providing that you have been honest and co-operative, you will not have to pay anything. If your case is successful, any costs not covered by the other side’s insurance will be paid from your compensation. This will be a maximum of 25%. It can be less, but it will never be more.

    It may seem daunting to put a claim in against the hospital, but you should never have to suffer the consequences of something that was not your fault. As well as claiming compensation for the physical trauma you have suffered, you may be able to claim for further costs and losses such as:-

    1. Mental distress.
    2. Loss of earning.
    3. Costs of medication or medical equipment.

    Our team and panel of specialist solicitors are here to ensure you are provided with the best possible service and help you in getting the compensation you deserve.

    What can I expect when I make a claim?

    If you have been a victim of misdiagnosis, or delayed or incorrect treatment, then we recommend that you contact us as soon as you are well enough to. To make a claim for hospital negligence, you have 3 years from the date you first noticed the consequences of failed care. For a child under the age of 18, their 3-year time limit does not start until their 18th birthday.

    If someone is unable to make the claim themselves, then another person can make the claim on their behalf. If you would like more advise and information on how this works, then contact our specialist team of advisors today on 0121 8276 446.

    Hospital negligence is not something that can be covered up by the hospital, although this is something they will not easily provide the details and information for. We are here to ensure that all the work is carried out in the way it should be, and in the time that it should be done in.

    Call us today on 0121 8276 446 to begin the process of claiming compensation. Alternatively, you can fill in our online form and one of our advisors will call you back at a time that is convenient for you.

    How to make a medical negligence claim against my local trust?

    The NHS is one of the biggest medical care institutes. It cares for, and treats, million of people every year. Although it provides care to millions of people successfully, there are many ways in which they can fall below the acceptable standard, resulting in negligence. This can include misdiagnosis, surgery mishaps, and even medication errors.

    People put their faith in medical institutes such as NHS to care for and treat them. When they fail to do that, the consequences can be devastating. With the number of treatments and medical procedures the NHS provide, there are things that can go wrong. However, you should not be left to suffer with this, especially considering you are not the one at fault.

    Some of the NHS trusts include:

    • East Midlands
    • East of England
    • London
    • Manchester
    • North East
    • Northern Ireland
    • North West
    • Scotland
    • South East
    • South West
    • Wales
    • West Midlands
    • Yorkshire & The Humber

    Don’t worry if you do not see your local trust on there. You may still be entitled to claim compensation.
