How does a medical negligence claim work?

Medical negligence claims are not the same as personal injury claims because the proof they require from you is different.

As a claimant, you must prove fault on the part of medical healthcare professionals and prove there has been avoidable harm that affects you personally. This is also known as causation.

Consequently, medical negligence claims can seem daunting and complicated unless you have the right support and knowledge to help you navigate your way to a successful conclusion.

You can claim for medical negligence if your treatment fell below a minimum professional standard of competence, and you suffered an injury that was otherwise avoidable.

You can also claim if you are the next of kin of someone who has died because of negligent care, or who cannot represent themselves, such as a child or someone with a mental disability. You may then be able to act on their behalf in seeking legal compensation.

But to make a successful claim, you need to first prove that medical negligence has occurred.

Here at Western Solicitors in London, we have experience in handling clinical and medical negligence claims. We place a great deal of importance on getting to know our clients to understand how the negligence they have experienced has impacted their lives and that of their families.

No win no fee solicitors

As highly experienced personal injury solicitors in London, we handle the majority of all our personal injury compensation cases on a No Win No Fee basis.

No win no fee personal injury claim in the UK is a type of legal arrangement where a solicitor takes on a personal injury case on behalf of a client without requiring any upfront payment. In this arrangement, the solicitor agrees to provide legal services for the client in exchange for a percentage of the compensation awarded if the case is won. However, if the case is lost, the client does not have to pay any legal fees to the solicitor. This type of arrangement is also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA).
