Misdiagnosis, surgical error poor after care?

Medical Negligence

Have you suffered adversely due to misdiagnosis, surgical error or substandard care? Whether you were being treated by a surgeon, a nurse, or your GP, if you have come to harm whilst in the care of a medical professional, you have a legal right to seek financial redress for your injuries, along with compensation for any personal damages suffered.

Medical Negligence - The Process to claim

You are usually required to start a compensation claim within three years of the date of your injury or of the date when you first discovered that your injury was the result of clinical or medical negligence.

It's crucial to get expert legal advice as soon as possible after the clinical/medical negligence took place. This will mean the proper steps can be taken to investigate your case fully at the earliest opportunity. Some evidence relies on memory, and it's always best to record these details when they are fresh.

Broadway Solicitors offer a free consultation to help you understand whether or not you have a compensation claim. We also offer home and hospital visits particularly for people who cannot attend our offices.

In all cases, if your claim is successful, the side paying your compensation will also pay your legal costs.

Preparing for a Medical Negligence Claim

We will want to understand fully the impact that the negligence has had on your life, and to make sure that any compensation you receive will cover all your future needs.

Preparing a medical negligence case can involve taking detailed statements, obtaining full copies of your medical records and X-rays, and seeking expert opinion. Ensuring that these are done thoroughly may take time. All this will give your claim the best chance of success, and should not deter you from making a medical negligence claim if you want to. Your Broadway Solicitor will arrange all this, so you don't have to worry.

Medically Misdiagnosed

Some people are put off from claim compensation by the thought of having to go to Court. This happens for only a very small minority of cases, in fact the vast majority of our claims are settled without getting as far as Court. Even if you do have to go to Court, we will help you every step of the way and ensure that you have the help and support that you need.

The Medical Negligence Claims Process

In our experience, when someone has been affected by substandard medical treatment it's not always compensation that they want; sometimes it’s simply an apology. On other occasions they want justice to be done, or they want to know that no one else will suffer in the same way. Claiming compensation for clinical or medical negligence will be able to provide you with financial compensation only. However, we may also be able to explain what other options are available.
