How Do I Make A Claim For Medical Negligence?

If you believe that you have a medical negligence claim, the first step is to speak to a solicitor with expertise in this area. At McGee Solicitors, we have an exceptional level of experience in medical negligence claims. If you ring us, we will go through what has happened with you and discuss what happens next. We can also answer your questions, such as how your claim can be funded and how much compensation you might receive.

What Is The Medical Negligence Claims Process?

Medical Negligence Solicitors Near MeIf you ask us to represent you, we will start by working with you to outline what has happened. We will obtain your medical records and ask a medical expert to prepare a report on your condition. We will let the healthcare provider and their insurer know that you intend to make a claim.

In some cases, the other side may admit liability. If they do, the next step is to calculate the amount of compensation we believe you are entitled to. If the other side does not admit that they are liable for what has happened or we cannot agree on the right sum in damages, then we can take your case to court. We will put together the strongest possible case and ensure that you are represented by an expert medical negligence advocate.

Where liability is admitted, we will negotiate with the other side to try and secure the right level of compensation. We will put together financial information in support of this, including evidence of your earnings, if you have been unable to work because of what has happened.

How Much Medical Negligence Compensation Am I Entitled To?

If you have suffered medical negligence, you will be entitled to two types of compensation:

  • General damages; and
  • Special damages

General damages aims to compensate you for the pain and suffering caused by the medical negligence as well as for any reduction in your quality of life, for example, if you now have trouble walking or you are no longer able to take part in certain activities.

Special damages refers to compensation for financial losses, to include those that you can reasonably be expected to incur in the future. Examples include loss of earnings, future loss of earnings, the cost of healthcare not available on the NHS, travel expenses to medical appointments, the cost of special equipment and the cost of making adaptations to your home, if necessary.

How Long Does It Take To Get Medical Negligence Compensation?

If your injuries are relatively minor, then your case could be finalised within a year, sometimes less, particularly if the healthcare provider admits that they were liable for what happened.

If your injuries are more severe, then you will often be advised to wait and see how well you heal and what long-term issues you may be left with. If this is the case, we can request interim payments from the other side so that you have financial help during the course of the claim.

Can I Claim Medical Negligence For A Child?

If your child has suffered harm as a result of negligent healthcare or medical treatment, you can make a claim on their behalf.

How Long Do I Have To Make A Medical Negligence Damages Claim?

You will usually have three years from the date of the incident in which to make a claim. If you did not know at the time, for example, if your condition was not diagnosed or was wrongly diagnosed, you will have three years from the date on which you should reasonably have been aware of the harm.

If you are making a claim on behalf of a child, they can start their claim up to three years from the date of their 18th birthday. In respect of someone without the mental capacity to manage their own affairs, there is no time limit.
