How Do I Start A Medical Negligence Claim For Compensation?
The first step in a medical negligence claim is to speak to an expert medical negligence solicitor. If you ask us to represent you, we will talk through with you the sequence of events and how you have been harmed by the healthcare you have received.
We will obtain your medical records and contact your medical practitioner and their insurer to advise them that you intend to make a claim. We will ask a medical expert to examine you and prepare a report on your condition to be used as the foundation for your claim.
Do I Have To Go To Court For Medical Negligence Compensation?
Once we have set out your case, the other side may admit liability. This means that your claim might not need to go to court. We will negotiate to try and agree on a sum in compensation. We are robust negotiators and we are often able to settle medical negligence cases out of court.
If the other does not agree that they were to blame for what has happened or the amount they offer is lower than we believe you should receive, we will prepare your case for court. We will arrange for you to be represented by an expert medical negligence advocate.
How Much Compensation Is Paid For Medical Negligence?
You are entitled to be compensated for the pain and suffering you have experienced and that you are likely to experience in the future if your condition is long-term. You will also be able to claim for loss of amenity. This is any reduction in your quality of life, such as being physically unable to do things.
As well as compensation for the effects of the medical negligence, you should also receive payment for all of the financial losses caused by the accident. This could include loss of earnings, the cost of travelling to medical appointments, the cost of special equipment and prescription charges.
Time Limit For Starting A Medical Negligence Claim
There is generally a time limit of three years from the date of the incident in which to start a medical negligence claim at court. If you did not realise at the time that you had been harmed, then the three years will start from the date on which you should reasonably have known.
If the person who suffered medical negligence is a child, then the three-year period starts on their 18th birthday.
