Warrington Medical Negligence Solicitors No Win No fee
Medical negligence is the more common term used to refer to clinical negligence. These are the legal terms for negligent behaviour on the part of a medical practitioner or healthcare professional. Medical negligence can refer to circumstances such as accidents, errors, mistakes, or poorer than expected levels of care that a patient (or claimant) has received during their care. The negligent actions or treatment can happen at any stage of the patients care. Medical negligence solicitors help people who have suffered in some way as a result of medical negligence to claim the compensation that they are owed.
From consultants to surgeons, nurses, dentists, and care workers, all medical and healthcare practitioners have a duty of care to the patients under their care. If this treatment does not live up to the minimum expected standards expected, you could be entitled to make a clinical negligence claim using medical claims lawyers. In order to make a successful claim, the solicitor will need to prove that the defendant owed the claimant a duty of care and that there was a breach of this duty. The claimant will also have to show that they were injured or that they suffered in some way as a result of this. In this guide, we look at how to go about hiring medical compensation lawyers, and how to make a successful claim. Your specialist medical negligence solicitors, can guide you through the claims process, helping you to get the damages you are entitled to, as well as providing support when you need it.
Before searching for a solicitor, such as medical negligence solicitors in Warrington, or elsewhere, many people worry about the effects of making your claim. One of the biggest worries people may have is that due to making a claim via medical negligence solicitors, their care will be affected in some way. Making a claim for compensation when you have been injured is your right and whether you have suffered private or NHS medical negligence. It should not affect, delay or otherwise affect your current or future treatment. Making a claim will also not interfere with investigations by the NHS or private providers internal investigative processes. It should also be noted that whilst your claim can financially compensate you for the injury, it will not discipline the defendant, nor will it in any way compel the defendant to change their practices.

Do You Need To Use Medical Negligence Solicitors In Your Area?

Medical claims lawyers can communicate with you using a variety of digital tools and work on your case just as well, wherever they are based. Whilst parts of your claim, such as additional medical examinations to gather further evidence, may need to be performed closer to you, the solicitor does not necessarily need to be. More important than a solicitors location is the competence and ability to handle a case such as yours. Have they worked on similar cases before? Do they have a good track record in securing higher award settlements? Whilst you may have originally looked for a solicitor in your area, It may be that the right solicitors are based in another location.

Clinical Negligence Compensation Calculator
Your compensation settlement or award will either be negotiated between solicitors acting on your behalf and the defendant’s or through the courts’ system and awarded by a judge. Whichever channel your case goes through, the parties involved will refer to the Judicial College guidelines. These guidelines are sent out each year and included recommended ‘minimum’ and ‘maximum’ levels of compensation for different types of injury and illness, as well as different causes. Whilst they are not legally binding, they are commonly used as a reference by solicitors and judges. You can learn more about settlements as well as see our clinical negligence compensation calculator in our guide here.

|Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust||41||5||2,107,200|
|Liverpool Community Health Trust||13||*||40,500|
Your settlement may include what are called special and general damages. General damages are paid out for the actual injury, illness or affliction that a claimant has suffered. It will take into account how long it will take to recover if recovery is possible, and any lasting consequences. It will also compensate a claimant for any loss of function, or ‘amenity’ during the recovery period and after. Special damages should compensate the claimant for any financial costs they have suffered. They may include costs such as reduced or lost income, the cost of medication or ongoing treatment, and any travel costs the claimant has had to pay out.

Hospital Clinical Negligence Claims
Hospital negligence claims are made in cases where a person has (in some way) been treated in a negligent way whilst undergoing treatment in hospital. The individual circumstances of the claim will dictate where liability lies, and a claim may be brought against the hospital, health care trust or other clinical commissioning group or governing body which is legally responsible for the provision of care, hospital operations or other factor affecting the claim. Hospital negligence claims may be brought against hospitals in the NHS, as well as private hospitals, such as those operated by Nuffield health and other providers.

GP Negligence Claims
The medical negligence solicitors who work with Legal Expert are experienced in successfully bringing GP negligence claims. We can help claimants who have suffered illness or injury as a result of the treatment they did or did not receive from a GP surgery or individual GP, in claiming the compensation that they owed.
