Medical Negligence Injury Compensation in Bradford

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 clinical negligence solicitors** for Bradford will explain, medical professionals such as doctors, surgeons, and dentists have a duty of care towards the health and safety of their patients. This is why their negligence could result in a compensation claim.

No one is saying that medical professionals intentionally cause injury (and if they 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.

Types of Clinical Negligence Claims

The most common types of medical negligence claims are for: injuries during childbirth, surgical errors, misdiagnoses and late diagnosis. The amount of compensation that is awarded in clinical negligence injury cases depends on the seriousness of the injuries, and they really do vary.

Recently, examples include an £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 clinical negligence cases, as they can be quite complex. Our personal injury lawyers ** at Accident Claims Bradford can help.

You should ensure that you approach our medical negligence solicitors** well within three years of the anniversary of the injury, otherwise you may become barred from brining 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.
