Medical Negligence Solicitors Are Your Friend

May 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 159

The term 'medical negligence' refers to any harm or injury a person has suffered from, due to negligence or error in treatment by a medical professional. A medical negligence solicitor is a person who helps people who have suffered from negligence, and helps them claim compensation according to the law. A patient who visits a doctor places all his trust in the doctor's abilities, and consults him in the belief that he will do only what is best for the patient. Hence, when the doctor's negligence causes any physical injury or mental stress, he can approach a solicitor to claim damages.

When to Contact a Medical Negligence Solicitor

Any patient can get in touch with a solicitor about claiming damages if he (or someone from his immediate family) has been harmed or injured by any way by a wrong diagnosis; a surgical error, like mistake in the dosage of anaesthetic given during surgery, or an instrument left inside the body; any infection contracted due to unclean conditions in a hospital; a wrong prescription given to him; death of a family member due to negligence; or birth problems like cerebral palsy which could have been caused by medical error.

Medical Negligence Claims

The amount of compensation that a patient claims depends on his case, and the circumstances. In general, the claim may include compensation for the actual physical injury and mental trauma suffered by the patient due to negligence; loss of income due to the medical error, and loss of future income due to the same; general expenses related to the injury and trauma (for its treatment, travel expenses incurred during the treatment, etc); cost of care required after the negligence occurred; and compensation for any lifestyle changes the patient may have to make.

Contact a Medical Negligence Solicitor Now

Medical negligence solicitors are available in plenty in the UK, and they help thousands of patients who have suffered due to inadequate care from medical professionals. If you think your sufferings have been caused by negligence, the best way to get started is to contact a medical negligence solicitor right away. The solicitor will help you get together all the facts and documents necessary and related to the case, and approach the courts with a lawsuit for compensation. Today, most medical solicitors work for free until the case is won - that means they will take up your case for free, and charge a fee only if you are awarded damages for negligent care.

Solicitors aim to help their clients get amounts of money that can partly compensate for the injury or losses they have suffered. Of course, no amount of money can make up for injuries, loss of limb, or the loss of a loved one, but the damages won in a medical negligence case can be used to help the sufferer or the survivor improve the quality of his life, now that he is in a situation he never expected to find himself in, and for no fault of his own.
