Once you have sought any supplementary medical care that you need, your next step should be to get the compensation that you are entitled to. Our medical negligence team is able to offer claimants an initial consultation early on after you have discovered your injury or illness to assess whether or not you have a claim which will be successful. This will also allow us to start your claim early whilst the details of how it happened are still fresh in your mind, and whilst your injury or illness can be assessed by an independent medical expert. If the defendant admits their liability early in this case then the solicitor we provide you may be able to secure you an interim payment from your final settlement to help with any medical costs or other expenses you have to meet as a result of the negligence you experienced.
To make a successful medical negligence claim the solicitor which we can provide you with will need to show three things. Firstly that you were owed a duty of care by the defendant, i.e. that you were under their medical care. Secondly that the defendant breached this duty of care in some way and finally that this breach or negligent action was the cause of your subsequent injury or illness.
In our guide to making a claim in Redditch below, we take a brief look at some of the most common types of medical negligence as well as giving you some tips on how to find the best solicitor for your claim.
Choosing The Best Medical Negligence Solicitor
Choosing the solicitor most suitable for your claim is the most important part of the overall claims process. Whilst other steps might be important, getting the right legal team behind you will ensure that you are represented in the best possible way throughout your claim. The best solicitor will be able to negotiate on your behalf and secure you the highest possible award settlement for your injuries. Here are answers to two of the most common types of question people have when thinking about using a solicitor.
Do You Need To Use Solicitors In Your Area?
This is a question which people often ask when they are considering using a solicitor. The simplest answer is no, you do not need to use a solicitor in your local area. In the area around Redditch, there are as many as 100 different solicitors firms. However, even with this many operating in the local area, the right one for your claim might not be here. We can provide you the best solicitor for your claims needs ensuring that you have the best help possible, regardless of location. The only part of a claim which needs to be carried out in your area or in a face-to-face setting is the medical examination you need. This can be organised close to you and in certain cases, we may be able to organise a home visit for you.
What To Consider When Reading Solicitor Reviews
Different solicitors and legal firms will have their own approach to providing services and interacting with a client. Some may be more formal whilst others may be causal and friendly.as important as it is in working with a solicitor who has the necessary experience, it is also important that you use a solicitor who approaches things in a way which makes you comfortable. Solicitor reviews are a good way to learn more about a solicitor’s individual approach to claimants, as well as learning about their track record and ability to help people such as yourself. Whilst reading reviews of different solicitors covering your area is a great way to find out more, they are not a substitute for contacting a service such as Legal Expert who can take the time to understand your claim and provide you with the right solicitor for your needs.

If a doctor, oncologist or surgeon makes a mistake your cancer symptoms may not be correctly diagnosed or not diagnosed early enough. In some cases, this may mean that your cancer is then much harder to treat, or that it could already have become terminal before your diagnosis is confirmed.

Medical Negligence Cases In Hospital
Medical negligence cases in a hospital can be made against both private and NHS hospitals and healthcare providers. A hospital should always be somewhere you can go and in which you can trust that the doctors and other staff will always provide you with the highest level of care possible. However for some the level of care provided will fall far short of this and as such, they could become injured or ill as a result. Claims may be made for NHS surgery compensation or other life-changing consequences such as acquiring pressure sores, developing a new illness or injury or contracting a so-called ‘superbug’ such as MRSA. Hospital negligence claims range from the mild to the severe and can involve all manner of circumstances.

They can be made for things such as negligence in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, dental assistance negligence, damage to your nerves and cases of negligent oral cancer treatment as well as periodontal negligence and a wide range of other circumstances leading to you being harmed. You can make a claim for dental negligence if you have suffered any form of negligence or harm as a result of the way in which your dentistry was provided. You claim can include physical injuries as well as compensation for the cost of additional treatment or any related loss of income.
GP Negligence Cases
GP negligence cases deal with circumstances in which a GP or other staff at a GP surgery have provided negligent treatment to a patient under their care. Your local GP surgery and the staff (such as doctors, nurses and other healthcare practitioners) will often be the first place you access health care in the UK if you have a minor injury or need an illness diagnosing and treating. As a patient, you need to be able to trust that they provide you with the best possible care and treatment. GP negligence cases could include you not being referred for further or correct treatment and testing or care being provided in a way which has a negative effect on you. This negligence could have serious consequences, such as a serious condition not being diagnosed in time or correctly. If you have experienced negligence in a GP surgery, contact us today.
Nursing Home Negligence Cases
Whether you are or have been a patient or resident in a nursing home or care home, or are a relative or person responsible for someone who is, you have an expectation of the highest level of care being provided to them. You need to be able to put your trust in the staff at the facility as well as the body responsible for the overall care at the facility. Sadly, nursing home negligence statistics in the UK show that each year thousands of people are affected by negligence or abuse in care and nursing homes across the UK.

Redditch No Win No Fee Solicitors For Negligence Claims
No win, no fee solicitors for negligence operate and help claimants under what is called a conditional fee agreement. This helps claimants to make a compensation claim without the worry of having to make upfront payments or facing a large legal bill at the end of a case. As the claimant, you won’t be exposed to any financial risks as you will only ever have to pay the solicitors fees if the claim is successful. If the case is, your legal fees can then be deducted from the overall settlement, meaning you don’t have to worry about paying legal fees before you have your settlement. If your claim is not awarded a settlement (in the event of a ‘no win’) you won’t have to pay anything. Neither your solicitor nor the defendant will ask for any costs with all the risk assumed by them. During your initial consultation, we will assess whether or not you have a valid claim and if we think you have a case. If we do, we could be able to offer to provide you with an experienced no win, no fee solicitor.
