Before we proceed with this guide, we should define what medical negligence is. Medical negligence is when a medical practitioner, such as a doctor, surgeon, nurse, paramedic or dentist acts negligently, resulting in substandard care towards the patient. This is also called clinical negligence, or medical malpractice. If this negligent action or inaction causes the patient to become injured, ill, or worsens an existing medical condition then they may be legally entitled to claim medical negligence compensation. These settlements can be worth tens of thousands of pounds, so if you think you may be owed medical negligence compensation, call Legal Expert today for your free consultation. We will provide you with a solicitor who will be responsible for representing you in your medical negligence claim and providing evidence of the medical negligence which took place.
If you are filing a medical negligence claim, what steps should you expect to take place? The first step will be your medical negligence solicitor contacting the healthcare provider (AKA the Defendant) to discuss the claim that you (AKA the Claimant) are making. Your compensation will be secured more quickly and the process will be less complicated if the Defendant admits their liability early on. In fact, the medical negligence claim process may only take a few months from start to finish. If the Defendant refuses to admit liability the case may proceed to court and take longer to be resolved. Please be aware that there is a medical negligence time limit in the UK. This means that you the Claimant will only have 3 years from the time that the medical negligence took place, or you realised that you had been harmed, to make your medical negligence claim.
