Medical Negligence Solicitors: Make a Claim

Providing premium support to clients for medical negligence claims. OH Parsons no win no fee medical negligence solicitors offer end-to-end legal guidance, striving to achieve you the compensation you deserve.

Making a Medical Negligence Claim

To make a medical negligence claim with OH Parsons, you will first need to provide the necessary details of your negligence experience before we assign you a specialist medical negligence solicitor. The solicitor will begin by collecting any relevant medical records, witness statements and other key documents to build the case.

If applicable, our experts will then contact independent medical experts to determine whether the treatment you received fell below the standard you were entitled to expect. We will also consider whether the injuries caused by assumed medical negligence would have been avoidable.

What is a Medical Negligence Claim?

Medical negligence is often termed as ‘clinical negligence’. It means a breach of duty by a doctor, nurse, dentist, midwife, surgeon or any member of staff in a healthcare or medical profession, that results in an avoidable medical problem or harm to a patient.

If you have suffered from an injury or any other health-related issues due to clinical negligence, then you need to hire an expert medical negligence solicitor who can help you claim for compensation. At OH Parsons, our specialist clinical negligence solicitors provide support throughout the entire legal process, and are dedicated to developing a strong, ultimately successful case for you.

We understand that starting a medical negligence claim can be daunting, but we make sure that none of our clients have to worry about the finances involved. You will pay nothing at all if, for whatever reason, your case is unsuccessful. If your case is successful, the fees will most likely be covered by some of the compensation funds you receive.

The lawyer begins by collecting all the relevant medical records, and will talk to you and anyone else that was present about your experience. For example, if you are claiming for birth injury compensation, they will speak to those present about the events during the birth of your child. Following this, independent medical experts will be involved in determining whether your treatment was sub-standard, and if injury was avoidable. Your case will then go to court if relevant.

We support our clients in suing the NHS for medical negligence, too.

Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Negligence

Yes, there are limitations that can affect the success of a medical negligence claim. – the primary one being the statute of limitations, which sets a time limit for bringing a claim. Additionally, if sufficient evidence cannot be provided to prove negligence or if the harm suffered does not meet the threshold for legal action, it can also prevent a successful claim.

Proving evidence of clinical negligence requires comprehensive documentation. This may include medical records, diagnostic reports, treatment plans, correspondence with healthcare providers, witness statements, and expert opinions. Gathering and organising this documentation is crucial for building a strong case – our medical negligence solicitors can help you here.

Yes, you can pursue a medical negligence compensation claim for someone who is deceased, often referred to as a wrongful death claim. Family members or dependents of the deceased individual can initiate the claim, and their compensation may cover financial losses, funeral expenses, and damages for the emotional impact of the wrongful death.

When choosing a medical negligence solicitor, it’s essential to look for experience, expertise, and a track record of success in handling similar cases.
