Clinical Negligence Claim Solicitors

The vast majority of medical treatments and procedures are performed to a very high standard without any problems. Unfortunately, things can go wrong and often carry with them serious consequences. This is a much specialised and often complex area of law. It is therefore important that you seek expert knowledge and experience in order to act in your very best interests at all times. Parkview Solicitors can take on your case on a No Win No Fee basis and help you to recover the maximum compensation that you deserve.

At Parkview Solicitors we can assist you if you have suffered as a result of a medical mistake, or are unhappy with your medical treatment. Medical professionals owe patients a ‘duty of care’. This means that they are responsible for providing an acceptable standard of care and protecting their patients from harm. If these reasonable standards are not met, your doctors and other health professionals may have committed a breach of their duty of care. Clinical or medical negligence is the term we use to describe cases where this duty of care is breached.

As well as caring for you, doctors are also responsible for making sure that you properly understand all the risks that might be involved in your treatment or surgery. This information will prepare you to give informed consent for your treatment. If you are not given all the appropriate information, you may also have a claim for clinical negligence.

There are many types of clinical negligence but most will include one of the causes outlined below:

  • A delay in your diagnosis which results in your chances of recovery being reduced
  • The misdiagnosis or incorrect treatment of an illness or disease
  • Poorly performed surgery
  • Mismanagement of the birth of a child causing injury to mother or baby
  • The failure of a medical device or product
  • A bad reaction to a drug
  • Cosmetic Surgery problems
  • Dental treatment problems
  • The development of pressure sores

Whatever the circumstances of your injuries, our medical negligence team has the experience and expertise needed to help and advise you further. Parkview Solicitors understand that making a claim can be stressful and upsetting, but we are here to guide you through the process and support you at every stage. We will also ensure that you are kept fully informed of the progress of your claim.

It is important to act quickly as there is usually a three year time limit for bringing a claim such as this. The three years start from the date of the negligence or the date of the knowledge of the negligence. The three year limit does not apply if it is a child who has been injured as the three years do not start until they reach the age of 18. If the person injured does not have capacity to deal with their own affairs, then there may be different rules that are appropriate meaning there is no time limit to the claim. Please contact us if you are unsure and we can advise you further.
