The main and the only reason why people visit a hospital is to make sure that they are fit and healthy when they walk out.
What you definitely don’t want is for your health or the health of your loved one to deteriorate much more after going to the hospital as a result of hospital negligence. The doctors and the nurses in the hospital are under oath to provide you the best medical care possible and their negligence can result in very grieve consequences and can cause permanent damage or even death of the patient.
The patient not only has to suffer pain but they also have to bear the financial burden of it due to something that wasn’t even their fault in the first place. To help fight this off, the government of the United Kingdom has come up with medical compensation claims where a patient can take the hospital and the doctors to court for their medical malpractice and force them to pay for the damages and the costs of the treatment.
Before filing a claim, you need to make sure that your claim holds enough weight and has sufficient information to help you win the case. It is very important to make sure that you have a genuine case backed with strong evidences. Getting a claim is a rigorous process and has a lot of scrutiny before one is provided to you.
The very first thing you should do is acquire the services of a medical negligence solicitor who specialises in such cases. Tell them the whole case and ask for their opinion about whether they feel that your case has potential to win. They will be in a better position to guide you about what are the things that you should collect in order to back up your claim.
Be prepared for a lengthy battle because the council will investigate the whole case from top to bottom and take its time in listening to both sides of the story before sanctioning you the claim amount. Make sure that you hire a hospital negligence claim solicitor that is capable and knows what they are doing. Most of these solicitors work on a no win no pay scheme which also great if your claim is unsuccessful.
