Mistakes happen in the medical profession with serious consequences. GP’s and doctors are busy and can miss things resulting in a delay in diagnosis or treatment.

FAQS

Common questions about medical negligence
When can I make a claim?

Answer

As soon as you realise something has gone wrong or suspect substandard medical treatment. The sooner the better as investigations will be required. The claim normally must be brought within 3 years of the negligent act or advice although a claim can still be considered if you only became aware of the problem at a later date.

How will I receive compensation?

Answer

Come to us and we will investigate the claim using independent experts who will offer unbiased opinions about the treatment provided.  After the claim is intimated to the medical practitioner it will become clear whether negligence is admitted. If it is a good claim it must then be valued by assessing the loss suffered as a result of the negligence.
