Washington, Tyne and Wear Medical Negligence Solicitors No Win No Fee

Medical Negligence Solicitors in Washington, Tyne and Wear

Before you contract with a firm of solicitors in Washington, Tyne and Wear to represent you in a medical negligence case, you should read this page, as the information it provides about an NHS accident compensation and clinical negligence will help you make a more informed decision when choosing a legal firm.

Every case of medical negligence that a person has successfully claimed compensation for had the three common factors below:

1). The medical professional who caused harm to the patient had a duty of care towards them.

2). The failure in meeting this duty was the cause of harm to the patient.

3). The failure in meeting this duty was avoidable.

Medical negligence can cause harm in several ways; physical injuries, worsening of a medical condition, causing a new medical condition and even psychological damage. Clinical negligence is caused by error, accident, oversight and lack of care. Typical examples of things that can lead to negligence are:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Surgical errors
  • Late diagnosis
  • Delays in treatment
  • Wrongly prescribed drugs
  • Allowing a patient to become the victim of an accident

How to Get the Best Solicitor

Here is a tip that will help you find the best solicitors in the UK to take on your medical negligence claim. Simply ask any legal firm you are considering the three questions below, they should be able to answer yes to all of them:

1). Have you won cases similar to my own in the last 12 months?

2). Can you arrange for a specialist to get me a local medical opinion?

3). Is it possible to take on my case under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)?

There is a far easier method to find good legal representation though. You can use the national medical negligence claims service offered by us here at Legal Expert. We can give anyone in the UK some free legal advice and put them in touch with the best legal firm for their claim.

Claims the Clinical Negligence Team Can Conduct

The clinical negligence team which Legal Expert has available to cover the Washington, Tyne and Wear area, has plenty of experience in winning complex clinical negligence cases of all kinds. Below, we have outlined many of the common types of cases we encounter, please call us if none of these fit your situation perfectly.

Cancer Negligence Cases

When a patient is suffering from an advanced case of cancer, it is critical that they receive immediate treatment in order to have the best chance of making a recovery. In many cancer negligence cases, an error such as misdiagnosis has caused a delay in administering this treatment, leading to the death of the patient.

Legal Expert can help residents of the Washington, Tyne and Wear area, and across the UK claim compensation for the loss of a loved one due to cancer negligence.

Birth Negligence Claims

Birth negligence claims are some of the most tragic cases we take on. The mother can suffer some serious injuries during the birthing process, yet it is the newborn infant that is at the greatest risk. In the most extreme cases, negligence will have caused a restriction in the oxygen flow to the child during the birth, and resulted in severe, permanent brain damage, effectively removing any chance of the baby having a normal life.

Families that are learning to cope with caring for an infant that was injured due to birth negligence, can rely on Legal Expert to claim the maximum compensation possible for them.

Doctor/GP Negligence

When claiming for GP negligence, it can be tough to prove the lability of your doctor. As a generalist, your GP is not expected to know everything about every medical condition, their job is to refer you on up the line to the correct specialist. Therefore, they could make a mistake through ignorance, and it could be argued that the mistake was unavoidable, and the doctor is not liable to claim against.

Legal Expert can help anyone in the UK to prove that their GP is liable in a negligence compensation case, by arranging a locally carried out independent medical examination, the results of which can be submitted as an expert medical opinion to support your case.

Nursing Home Negligence Complaint

There are many reasons why a resident may need to make a nursing home negligence complaint. However, in reality, there is one type of care home negligence we see far more often than any other. Many residents of a care home are unable to care for themselves and undertake basic tasks such as going to the bathroom or dressing without care and supervision. When this care and supervision is not available for some reason, the resident may attempt to undertake the task on their own, which could lead to them being injured in an accident.

If you have a family member staying in a nursing home, and they have had an accident such as a slip, trip or fall, if Legal Expert can prove the care staff were to blame, you will be able to claim compensation.

Dental Negligence

When a dentist makes a mistake or has an accident whilst undertaking a dental procedure, then the injury can cause damage to the teeth, gums, jaw or the soft tissue of the face. Aside from the pain and suffering caused by the initial injury, it may also cause visible cosmetic damage. It has been proven that living with even a slight disfigurement for a short time can cause psychological harm.

Therefore, when Legal Expert claims compensation for dental negligence, our dental negligence team knows that it must factor in the psychological stress and trauma the incident caused.

Hospital Negligence

Medial negligence in a hospital is a common occurrence in NHS hospitals such as North Tyneside General Hospital. Cases of negligence can range for fairly mild such as an inpatient taking a slip on a wet floor, through to terminal cases where an accident during a surgical procedure has killed the patient on the operating table.

If you believe you have been harmed due to medical negligence in a hospital, then call Legal Expert today for some initial free hospital negligence advice.
