This guide offers plenty of tips and advice on how to choose a suitable medical negligence solicitor. It will also introduce you to a better option than engaging a local legal firm. Our solicitors can work for you from anywhere in the country. They can help Solihull residents claim compensation.
What are medical negligence claims?
When we use the term medical negligence or clinical negligence, we are talking about cases where a medical professional or a healthcare establishment, such as a hospital, has acted negligently. Such professionals and establishments owe their patients a duty of care. As part of this duty, healthcare providers should take reasonable steps to protect their patients from any harm which realistically could have been foreseen and prevented. If a healthcare provider breaches this duty, then they could be considered negligent and anyone directly harmed by this negligence may be able to claim compensation in response.
In order to have a viable reason for claiming compensation for negligence, you will need to be able to prove three things:
- A medical professional or health care service owed a duty of care towards you.
- The healthcare provider failed to fulfil this duty of care and this directly led to the worsening of your medical condition (or the creation of further health issues).
- The circumstances leading up to this breach of duty of care were realistically avoidable had the medical professional provided you with the minimum standard of care.
If you believe the three statements above to be true in your case, then you should contact Legal Expert today. We have a provable track record of claiming successfully in negligence cases. Our solicitors’ services are available for people in Solihull to use. You can contact our advisors by phone on 0800 073 8804. We are also available to talk online through our live chat service or by completing our online form.
How to Choose the Best No Win No Fee Solicitor
If you are considering using a local legal firm to represent you in a claim for medical negligence that happened in Solihull, then there may be a better option. Legal Expert offers a nationwide claims service that is accessible to local Solihull residents, all you need to do is give us a call or contact us online for advice or support on starting a compensation claim.
However, if you would still like to check out some local legal firms, here are some tips and advice for doing so.
Should I Check Solihull Clinical Negligence Solicitors Reviews?
If you search online and find some solicitor reviews Solihull residents have posted about local legal firms, these can generally be a good source of information. If possible, asking your friends and family about their experiences with specific firms could offer extra insight.
We can offer you our own claims service, which removes the need to find a good local solicitor.
Are Claimants Restricted to Using a Local Lawyer?
Absolutely not, indeed the most important consideration should be how experienced your choice of solicitor is at claiming compensation in medical negligence cases. The physical location of the solicitor means very little.
For example, the nationwide claims service we operate here at Legal Expert is available to people all over the country, including those that live in Solihull and our track record of winning negligence cases is excellent.
Which Medical Negligence Cases Can Our Solihull Team Handle?
When searching for medical negligence solicitors for Solihull claims, it’s best to engage a solicitor or legal firm that is experienced in handling these types of cases. Solicitors who have previous experience in claiming clinical negligence compensation are more likely to know what to expect when trying to get the maximum compensation possible from such cases.
Legal Expert has a proven track record of winning difficult negligence cases for its clients, and we always aim to win the highest amount of compensation possible. Below is detailed some of the types of negligence cases we have successfully won in the past on behalf of our clients.
Hospital Negligence Solicitors
Legal Expert’s panel of solicitors may be able to assist you if you have evidence to support a hospital negligence claim. Claiming for negligence against a hospital can be complicated, and it will almost always involve the victim of the negligence needing to present some type of third-party expert medical opinion in support of their case. This is something that Legal Expert can arrange for you as part of our national claims service.
Cases of Dental Negligence
In many cases, a person that is injured during dental surgery may have facial scarring or other cosmetic injuries. This means that a compensation claim will potentially comprise of more than simply damages for the pain and suffering caused. Legal Expert may be able to help you claim for the physiological trauma caused by receiving a serious cosmetic injury, and also for the long-term or even permanent disfigurement you may have.
GP Negligence Claims
Making a negligence claim against a GP can be difficult. However, our solicitors can offer their advice and expertise if you have evidence to support this type of claim. There are different potential issues that could lead to a GP negligence claim. For instance, a GP may be considered negligent if they make an unnecessary referral to a specialist which delays you from receiving the appropriate treatment.
Cancer negligence claims are amongst the most serious of all negligence claims and here at Legal Expert we always approach them with due consideration. Even a short delay in receiving the correct treatment can be life-threatening in advanced cases of cancer. This means that misdiagnosis of the type of cancer a patient has is a very serious mistake. Legal Expert can potentially assist victims of cancer negligence and also their next of kin in claiming compensation.
Cases of Nursing Home Negligence
Claiming for negligence that occurred in a care home is something that Legal Expert is well experienced in. These kinds of cases are unfortunately very common. Care homes are required to provide a specific level of care for their residents. Unfortunately, lack of funding and overwork means that standards of care can slip, and this is where Legal Expert may be able to help. We can advise on claiming compensation for care/nursing home negligence.
Childbirth Medical Negligence Claims
Fortunately, childbirth negligence claims are rare, but when they do occur they can be truly tragic. Even a short period of time without oxygen during the delivery can leave a baby with serious brain damage for the rest of their life. The mother is also at risk during the surgical process of birthing. In extreme cases, both the mother and baby can suffer. Therefore, Legal Expert always approaches childbirth medical negligence claims with compassion and great care.
