Maidstone Medical Negligence Solicitors No Win No fee
We put our ultimate trust in the medical profession to do the right thing when taking care of use, whether it is a dentist, carer, GP or surgeon. However, sometimes even the best medical professionals make mistakes, and when they do, they can make things worse for their patients. If someone you care about, or if you were subject to this type of negligence, then you may want to take action against the person/s or entity/ies that have caused this harm. Medical negligence compensation guidelines permit people to make clinical negligence claims up to three years from the event, or the date when they were made aware of the negligence itself, so if you have become aware of negligence, It is a good idea to act quickly.
The reason you may be able to seek compensation for negligence is that your clinical provider has a duty to ensure your care needs are met while you are their patient, and if they have failed to meet those needs, whether through action or inaction, then they may be held accountable for this if it can be proven that they acted negligently.

What claims Do our Maidstone Medical Negligence Team Handle?
Legal Expert are here to help with a wide variety of different types of clinical negligence claim. NHS and private practices do get things wrong sometimes, and it is not only in your best interests to pursue action and retrieve financial compensation for your injuries due to this negligence, it can also help other people in the future, as often, remedial action is taken to prevent the same thing happening again. From dentists to GPs to care home workers, everyone involved in care has certain responsibilities, and if they are negligent in these duties, you should be able to claim. Here, we list some of the most common negligence cases that you can take action for.
Hospital Negligence Compensation
Medical negligence solicitors in Maidstone and the surrounding areas deal with many different types of clinical negligence claim. NHS and private hospitals are known to provide a great standard of care in most cases, but things do go wrong in hospitals and this can often be because the hospital or the staff working in it is at fault. Whether your injury is something as serious as a surgical error, misdiagnosis or mistreatment or lack of proper hygiene
Claim for Dental Negligence
Dentistry can be a complex field and whilst most dental appointments are fairly standards, there are a variety of things that can go wrong, leading to poor condition of the mouth or teeth and even facial disfigurement. If your dentist has not acted properly and been negligent in the diagnosis of any issues or treatment given, leading to injury or worsening oral health issues, then you may be liable to start a claim for dental negligence.
GP Negligence Claim
Usually, the first thing we do when we’ve been feeling ill is to ring the GP for an appointment or advice. Usually, your GP will listen to your symptoms, examine you if necessary, then offer advice on treatment and prescriptions if required. In some cases, however, GPs have been found to be at fault for medical negligence, whether for a missed diagnosis, or a misdiagnosis, or an incorrect prescription to name but a few examples. If this is the case, and someone you love has been affected – or even if it is you that has been subject to GP negligence, then you should be able to pursue a GP Negligence Claim.
Cancer Negligence Compensation
Failure to diagnose cancer in a timely manner or correctly can cause devastating and far reaching effects. From side effects that have not been spotted to diagnosis too late for effective treatment, to provision of the incorrect dose of medication, the consequences could mean amputation, worsening of the cancer or even death. If you or any of your family have been subject to a poor standard of care and suffered harm as a result of negligent clinical action or inaction, then with solicitors in Maidstone, you may be able to take action to redress the balance.
Nursing and Care Home Compensation Cases
It can be a difficult decision to place a loved one in a care home or nursing home, and we trust our decision is making life better for the person in question. However, if they are not looked after properly and given the proper care, this can cause harm, both in physical terms and in loss of quality of life, which can lead to negative psychological effects. If someone you love, or even you have been mistreated, whether in terms of not being medicated correctly, suffered injury due to a slip or fall, or by neglect, then we can certainly advise on what to do next.
Childbirth Negligence Claims
Childbirth should be a joyous experience, but sadly, not all births go smoothly. If you have experienced poor care in childbirth that has resulted in injury to mother or baby then it may be possible for you to pursue childbirth negligence claims. Whether the baby’s low blood sugar has not been properly diagnosed, or stress signals have not been detected or actioned upon quickly enough, if proper care and attention has not been taken and injury/harm has resulted, then why not speak to us to see if we can help you make a claim.
