Before we get started we should confirm what medical negligence is. Medical negligence, also known as medical malpractice or clinical negligence is when a patient receives substandard care which is below what you would expect from a healthcare practitioner. If the negligence caused the patient to become ill, injured, or it worsened an existing medical condition, then they could be entitled to claim medical negligence compensation. If you think you may be owed medical negligence compensation, contact Legal Expert; give us a call or fill out our online claims form. Our clinical negligence team will assess whether or not you have a legitimate case for making a clinical negligence claim, estimate how much compensation you could be awarded and find the right clinical negligence solicitor to represent you. This will be a Scarborough based solicitor or one who covers the Scarborough area. Your solicitor will also be responsible for communication with the healthcare provider who was responsible for your medical negligence accident (the Defendant). If the Defendant admits liability early on, you will avoid going to court and receive your compensation quicker. Your solicitor may also be able to secure interim payments from the Defendant to help you cover your loss of income if your injuries have left you unable to work or cover your medical expenses. If the Defendant doesn’t dispute liability and the case doesn’t proceed to court, the medical negligence claim is likely to only take a few months.
Please be aware that there is a clinical negligence limitation in England and Wales. This means that most compensation claims must proceed within three years of the medical negligence accident happening or the injured party discovering that they had been made injured or ill. There are some clinical negligence limitation exceptions. For example, parents can claim on behalf of a child until their 18th birthday, after their 18th birthday the child can make a medical negligence claim for an incident that happened at any point during their childhood, before their 21st birthday.
