Medical Negligence Injuries
If you have suffered an injury as a result of medical negligence then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation which you can do with the assistance of a medical negligence compensation solicitor in Bradford. As our medical negligence solicitors** Bradford will explain, medical professionals such as doctors, surgeons and dentists have a duty of care towards the health and safety of their patients and this is why their negligence could result in a compensation claim.
No one is saying that medical professionals intentionally cause injury (and if there do it is potentially a criminal matter) and you should not doubt the relationship between you and trusted medical professionals like your GP. Unfortunately situations do arise where the standard of care has fallen below an acceptable standard and this is where a claim will arise.
The most common types of medical negligence claims are for: injuries during child birth, surgical errors, misdiagnoses and late diagnosis. The amount of compensation that is awarded in medical negligence injury cases depends on the seriousness of the injuries and they really do vary.
Recently examples include a £18,000 compensation award for incorrect dental treatment and £1,000,000 for a brain injury caused during birth. In most cases once your solicitor has helped you to establish liability, with the assistance of medical reports and witness testimony, they will negotiate a settlement on your behalf with the medical professional’s insurance company.
When appointing a medical negligence solicitor in Bradford to deal with your case you should ensure that they are experienced with medical negligence cases as they can be quite complex. Our personal injury lawyers at Personal Injury Claims Bradford can help.
You should ensure that you approach our medical negligence solicitors** Bradford well within three years of the anniversary of the injury otherwise you may become barred from bringing a claim. If you are claiming on behalf of a deceased then you should do so within three years of the date of death. When claiming on behalf of a child you should do so before their 21st birthday.
