Liverpool Medical Negligence Solicitors No Win No Fee Claims Guide

By Stephen Hudson. Last Updated 8th December 2021. Most patients treated in the UK’s hospitals will be treated extremely well. The high quality of NHS care means that most patients won’t have any problems. However, on occasion, things do go wrong. In this guide, we will take you through the circumstances in which you might wish to take legal action and work with Liverpool medical negligence solicitors.

These types of claims are usually made in response to negligent behaviour by a healthcare provider (such as a doctor or dentist). People can suffer injuries due to a healthcare provider;

  • Failing to correctly diagnose a condition, make the wrong diagnosis or not diagnose the condition in time.
  • Make a mistake during a procedure, operation or in the dispensing of medication.
  • Prescribed the wrong treatment (such as a drug).
  • Not obtaining the patient’s informed consent, or warning the patient about a treatment’s risks.

In order to be eligible to start a medical/clinical negligence claim, your case will require evidence that shows the following:

  • A healthcare provider owed you a duty of care.
  • The healthcare provider treating you breached their duty of care in a manner that, realistically, could have been foreseen and avoided.
  • The injuries which you are claiming for are directly linked to the breach of duty of care committed by the defendant.

Liverpool Medical Compensation Claims Solicitors

A patient who is looking to make a medical negligence claim will need to show that their treatment was carried out in a negative or negligent way. That means the level of care they received was below generally medically acceptable standards. If you have been affected by such negligence, then you may have developed a new injury or illness as a result. Alternatively, an existing injury or illness may have been made worse by negligence.

Read Reviews Of Liverpool Medical Negligence Lawyers

Today you can find reviews of solicitors in your area, both offline and online. Just a few years ago it would have been less easy to find accurate and impartial reviews of these types of professional services. However, the web has made it easier than ever to read and evaluate as well as to compare different professional services, such as clinical negligence solicitors in Liverpool.

Reading reviews for solicitors in your area can be a great way to see if they have the experience in securing the compensation you deserve. When you read reviews, try to compare their different levels and types of services. It’s also worth analysing their fee structure and whether or not they offer a No Win No Fee service. Reading reviews is a good way to learn more. However, it is not a substitute for talking directly to an expert.

Should I Use A Medical Negligence Lawyer Near Me?

In the digital age, professional services can be provided by experts anywhere in the country. You could be looking for a solicitor based in your area, such as Liverpool or the surrounding area. Nowadays, however, many solicitors including our own can communicate with clients through the use of email, secure and instant messaging services and even video conferencing applications. Much of the work on your case can be carried out on a remote basis. As such, no matter where you are based, our Liverpool medical negligence solicitors can assist claimants from across the country.

The only part of a claim which may need to be carried out in your local area could be any additional medical examinations or consultations which are needed to establish the necessary level of evidence. If needed, your personal injury solicitor will connect you with an independent medical examiner in your area.

Different No Win No Fee claims experts may be able to secure differing levels of compensation. Successful claims may be awarded compensation under two factors:

  • General damages, which include the direct medical results of the negligence.
  • The second type is special damages. This includes compensation for any out-of-pocket expenses a claimant has incurred, such as additional treatments, travel expenses or other costs. Special damages can even include loss of earnings. It’s usually only possible to claim for special damages if you’re eligible to claim for general damages.

Different legal teams may have a better record of securing higher settlements in their band. They may also charge different fees. As such, claimants should be aware of how much a solicitor may charge for their services.
