WHAT IS MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE CLAIM & COMPENSATION

Most medical procedures are carried out well and to a high standard, unfortunately on some rare occasions  treatment is not performed to the standards set by the medical board. This could be as a result of incompetence or a lack of judgement of a doctor, surgeon or healthcare professional. Health professionals on occasions fail in their duty of care, this can lead to the patient experiencing pain and suffering that could have been avoided.  Our medical negligence solicitors are experts in this field, call us today for a free consultation to see if you can make a successful claim, we cover the whole of Scotland and offer free home or hospital visits.

Claiming compensation can help you get back on the road to recovery faster, as we can help with all private physiotherapy, and associated costs.

The first step is to contact us for a free initial assessment of your claim, this is to make sure that you understand the process clearly and know exactly what to expect after a claim has been made on your behalf.

We will advise you how much compensation you could expect to receive and the how long the process will take.

THE CLAIMS PROCESS

After speaking to one of our medical negligence personal injury claims specialists we will put you through to one of our expert solicitors, they will discuss the claim further with you and will answer any questions you may have, the No Win No fee agreement will be explained to you in simple terms and your claim will then be set up. Your solicitor will then make contact with the company responsible  and initiate the claim. The solicitor will keep you updated throughout the claim process, until the claim has been settled and you are satisfied with the outcome.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO MAKE A MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE CLAIM?

According to Scottish Law, you have 3 years in which to intimate a medical negligence claim with the at fault party, we advise the claim should be intimated as soon as possible.

If a child under the age of 16 is involved in a road traffic accident, they usually have 3 years to make claim following their 16th birthday.

So why wait? Contact us today to get the compensation you deserve.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE BEFORE I RECEIVE MY COMPENSATION?

Every case is different, there are a number of factors that affect the time it takes to settle a medical negligence injury claim, a few are mentioned below :

The circumstances of the accident

Whether the identity of the third party is known

How long it takes to gather all medical evidence

The type and length of injuries sustained

Whether the at fault party accepts liability

CAN I CLAIM?

If your medical negligence accident took place within the last three years, wasn’t your fault and you suffered injury as a result of it then we can help you make a successful claim for compensation.

HOW MUCH IS MY CLAIM WORTH?

In general, the more severe your injury and length of suffering, the higher amount of compensation you can expect to receive, this is partly due to the affect it would have had on your lifestyle, social life, work, and in some cases personal relationships. But don’t worry, we are here to support and assist you, to get the right help at the right time, this would include private physiotherapists, and professional medical experts.

GENERAL DAMAGES / SOLATIUM

General damages is the amount awarded for the pain and suffering following an accident, in Scotland this is known as Solatium, interestingly the word Solatium is derived from Latin. Please refer to the Personal Injury Calculator below to see the level of compensation you could expect to receive for Solatium.

SPECIAL DAMAGES (OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES)

Following a medical negligence accident you may have incurred additional expenses as a result of the accident, this might include things like damage sustained to your property, clothing, along with transport costs for medical treatment. As all these expenses have incurred as a result of the accident, Hamilton Douglas Legal can recover these costs for you, we strongly advise you to keep all your receipts for your expenses, as these costs may be reimbursed by the third party.

LOSS OF EARNINGS

If you have been involved in a medical negligence accident and suffered injury, you may have to take time off work to help with your recovery, unfortunately in some cases this could lead to a loss or a reduction in wages and/or loss of overtime, in turn this could lead to financial hardship and have an effect on your quality of life, we can help you recover all your loss of earnings from the at fault party as this is your legal right, even if the at fault party was your employer.

I was left with a broken arm after an accident at the Ice Rink. After the operation on my arm I should have been received physiotherapy within 10 days. Unfortunately this did not happen and as result I ended up with an extremely stiff shoulder. I am please to say after contacting H.D Partnership I was awarded £5650.00 for the medical negligence and I could not be more grateful. Thank you.
