Before we go into further detail with this guide, let’s define what medical negligence is. Medical negligence is when a patient receives substandard medical care from a medical professional or medical organisation during treatment. This negligence action or inaction could include medical mistakes, issuing an incorrect treatment or a misdiagnosis of an existing medical condition.

If the medical practitioner’s negligent action or inaction causes you, the patient to become ill, injured, or you experience the worsening of an existing medical condition as a result, then you are entitled to claim medical negligence compensation.

Some of these claims are worth tens of thousands of pounds. Whether you are making an NHS compensation claim, or a private healthcare claim, the process is there. What’s more, if you have been harmed because of the negligence of a medical professional or institution then claiming compensation from them, is a way of demanding accountability for their actions.

Your medical negligence solicitor will be responsible for representing you during the claims process, and presenting evidence in your favour. To win your medical negligence claim, the solicitor must be able to provide evidence of the following:

1). That the Defendant owed you, their patient a duty of care.

2). That the Defendant breached their duty of care towards you, through a negligent action or inaction.

3). That this negligence resulted in an avoidable accident that led to you becoming ill, injured or worsened a medical condition that you already suffered from.

Another important thing to know about medical negligence is that there is a statute of limitations in England, on making a medical negligence claim, also known as a medical negligence claims time limit. This means that after you have experienced an incident of medical negligence, or you realise that you have been harmed by medical negligence, you only have 3 years to make your medical negligence claim.

How Much Could My Claim Be Worth?

Some medical negligence solicitors for Barking may tell you that they can tell accurately value your claim straight away. This isn’t true. Every claim is different, so the value will change on a case-by-case basis. As an alternative, in this section, we will tell you how your settlement is often calculated.

General Damages

This figure is awarded to you so that your physical pain and psychological injuries are acknowledged. Legal professionals will use the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG) to assist them in coming up with a suitable amount. These guidelines are made up of a list of injuries. The list is very detailed and has a range of figures alongside each entry.

These figures relate to what could be awarded for that specific injury. More severe injuries tend to be awarded towards the higher end of this bracket. Below, we’ve included some examples from the JCG. This is just a small sample of the entries in the publication. Don’t worry if you don’t see your injury represented here.

InjuryDescriptionAmount
Psychiatric damage(a) Severe - the problems will be prominent and the injured party’s prognosis will be very poor,£51,460 to £108,620
Chest(c) When the chest is damaged, including the lung(s). Some ongoing disability will occur as a result.£29,380 to £51,460
Female reproductive system(b) Where the failure to diagnosis an ectopic pregnancy results in infertility£31,950 to £95,850
Female reproductive system(e) If sterilisation fails and an unwanted pregnancy takes palace as a result, but with no serious psychological impactIn the region of £9,570
Illness(iv) When you have a varying degree of pain, diarrhoea and/or pain over a period of days or weeks£860 to £3,710
Arm(b) Loss of an arm - amputated above the elbow£102,890 to £122,860

Mental anguishWhen there is a fear that your life is about to end£4,380

Special Damages

Along with general damages, there are other amounts that can be included in your final settlement. These are calculated by adding up the various outgoings or financial losses you may have experienced as a result of your injuries. These are known as special damages. There are a few things that can be considered eligible for reimbursement via a special damages figure. Some examples include:

  • Medical bills you may need to cover costs like prescriptions or specialist private care that wasn’t available for free on the NHS.
  • Travel costsyou may need to make alternative travel arrangements due to your injuries. For example, you may need to take taxis due to your injuries have affected your ability to drive.
  • Loss of earningsyour injuries may cause you to miss time at work, and therefore the ability to earn money. The wages you lose out on over this period can also be reimbursed.

There are other things that can be claimed back via special damages. Get in touch for more information. It’s also of utmost importance that you have proof of these expenditures. For example, payslips would be a good way of proving how much you would or could have earned over the period of your recovery. Receipts are a good way of keeping track of how much you spend on public transport. Without proof, you’re likely to find it much more difficult to claim these costs back.

Medical Negligence Statistics

The NHS maintains a detailed record of the medical negligence claims they handle on a yearly basis. They publish these figures in their annual report. The latest numbers for 2020/21 tell us that the NHS paid out over £2,209 million in medical negligence costs associated with medical negligence claims. This includes claims made against GP surgeries, hospitals, and even dentists.

These figures do not include the claims made against private healthcare facilities. So, this is only a partial idea of the total amount paid out overall each year. In the graph below, you’ll see how these figures are broken down.

No Win No Fee Negligence Solicitors

You may be worried about how much medical negligence solicitors for Barking may charge you in advance. However, all of our lawyers work with their clients on a No Win No Fee basis. This agreement is just as simple as it sounds.

You will not owe your lawyer a penny unless they are successful in helping you to win your claim for compensation. Even then, their fee is covered via a small percentage that’s taken from your settlement before it reaches you. This fee is agreed upon in advance and is kept small by law. So, there are no hidden fees.

It is possible to make a claim without legal representation. However, we do not recommend this. If you do not have a No Win No Fee with a lawyer in place, then you could still be expected to pay expensive legal bills whether or not your claim is successful.

The main advantage of making a claim under a No Win No Fee agreement is the reduced financial risk to yourself.
