Choosing A Solicitor For Your Claim
When searching for solicitors to help with a claim in Newport Pagnell, there are many different factors you should take into consideration. You need to make sure the solicitor you choose has the necessary experience. This does not simply mean many years in their locker, but it means that they have worked on many negligence claims before. You cannot afford to take a risk on a solicitor that does not have this level of experience.
Research Newport Pagnell Medical Negligence Solicitors
When you are looking for solicitors, you need to put your research in. This involves reading solicitor reviews that have been left by other clients, as well as asking your family and friends for advice if they have used a solicitor before.
Most importantly, though, you need assistance from a specialist company, which is what Legal Expert provide. We can provide experienced medical negligence solicitors for Newport Pagnell claims, ensuring you have the greatest chance of securing clinical negligence compensation.
Are You Restricted To Using A Local Solicitor?
Some people may assume that their only option is to use a solicitor that is local if they have experienced medical negligence that happened in Newport Pagnell. However, this is not the case. Nowadays, communication options are so varied. You can make contact with your solicitor via instant messaging, emailing, telephone calls, video calls and other similar methods. This makes it easy to get updates about your case even if your solicitor is based far away from where you live.
Rather than judging your decision on location, you can consider other more important factors like track record and experience.
What Claims Can We Handle In Newport Pagnell?
Here at Legal Expert, we handle all types of medical negligence claims. We can help you to secure NHS accident compensation, as well as securing compensation for claims made against private hospitals. Below, you will find an overview of the different types of cases we cover.
Hospital Negligence Cases
Hospital negligence cases can happen in many different ways. From poor hygiene and sanitation to errors during surgery, there are many ways a healthcare professional or organisation could be at fault. You may have even been administered the wrong medication or you may feel you have been mistreated while in hospital.
So long as your illness or injury has stemmed from something a healthcare professional has or has not done, then you have a good chance of securing compensation.
Dental Negligence Damages
We do not only secure claims made in hospitals. Dental errors can also constitute clinical negligence.
We can help you to secure dental negligence damages for any errors your dentist has made that has resulted in physiological or physical injuries to you or caused you any illness. This could be anything from pulling out the wrong tooth to administering anaesthetic incorrectly.
Compensation For Negligence At A GP Surgery
We can help you to secure compensation for GP negligence. Your GP is typically your first port of call whenever you are not feeling well. If they make an error, it impacts everything that comes after this – your diagnosis, your treatment, your symptoms, and so on.
A mistake can result in the illness getting worse or further side effects appearing. No matter what has happened, we can help you get the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.
Cancer Negligence Compensation
Cancer negligence can be very worrying because the consequences can be so severe. If cancer is not diagnosed correctly – i.e. it is mistaken for something else or it is overlooked altogether – the cancer could spread and the illness can get a lot worse. This can sometimes result in death.
Issues can also be just as problematic if the incorrect treatment is administered. You can not only claim for yourself, but you can also claim for a loved one, including incidents involving fatal accidents.
Nursing and Care Home Compensation Cases
If you or someone you love has not received the care and treatment you would expect from a nursing home, you could make a claim.
There are a number of different types of scenarios that fall into this bracket. Perhaps you or your parent has been mistreated by the staff? Maybe you or a loved one has fallen because of an object a member of staff left on the floor? Or, maybe you or someone you love has not received the primary level of care they are entitled to?
Childbirth Negligence Claims
Childbirth negligence claims can be very traumatic. You can claim for both the physical and mental injuries you have experienced, or your baby has experienced. It is vital to stress that claims can be made for both the mother and the child.
These claims are for incidents whereby a certain action or inaction taken by the midwife or another medical professional during childbirth has resulted in an injury to the baby or the mother.
Examples of birth injuries to babies include:
- Hip dysplasia
- Scars and cuts
- Fractures to the collarbone, shoulder, arm, legs and skull
- Brain injuries
- Cerebral palsy
Examples of birth injuries to mothers include:
- Errors in managing pre-eclampsia
- Anaesthetic errors
- Retained swabs
- Injuries to organs from caesarean sections
- Mistakes in suturing tears or episiotomies
- Wrongly performed episiotomies
- Perineal tears
