A&E, NHS and GP Negligence
If you have been the unfortunate victim of medical negligence, whether in an NHS hospital, A&E department or a GP surgery, there are a number of options available to you.
We all expect to receive a certain standard of medical advice and treatment when ill or injured, however, errors do sometimes happen.
Linder Myers has a department specialising in providing help and support to people affected by medical negligence. The team will be able to offer you all the legal advice you need and assist you throughout any action taken to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
Pursuing a complaint
All NHS organisations have a complaints procedure, as do many private healthcare providers.
Pursuing a complaint can be valuable for a number of reasons, as it gives you the opportunity to get the following:
- An explanation for the medical negligence
- Answers from staff members in charge of your treatment
You cannot receive a financial settlement from an NHS complaint. However, the reply given by the NHS organisation can be useful during a medical negligence claim, as the response may contain an admission of fault.
Our solicitors can help you to draft a complaint against an NHS organisation, and review the response given to determine whether any further action is necessary.
Claiming for compensation
If you have had to deal with any of the following issues as a result of medical negligence, we may recommend that you pursue a claim for compensation:
- Pain and suffering
- Financial losses
- Medical setbacks
The medical negligence team at Linder Myers will be able to build a case against the responsible party on your behalf and negotiate your settlement to make sure you are fully compensated for the incident. We will also be able to look after any court proceedings, if they become necessary.
