Medical negligence – understanding the theoretical framework
Every doctor has a specific duty of care that he/she must adhere to. Doctors must count patient care and treatment as their prime concern and should act accordingly. They should keep their skills and knowledge up-to-date so that they can diagnose and treat even the rarest of medical conditions. The increasing number of clinical negligence cases in the UK shows that some doctors are oblivious about their general duties and responsibilities. Theoretically, injury claim litigation is aimed at compensating the victims of doctor’s negligence. However, with every case filed against a doctor or hospital authority, the poor healthcare standards followed in different privately held and NHS-controlled hospitals come under the scanner. We are a legal firm advocating for the importance of filing injury claims against the wrongful acts of the doctors for quite a few years now. In our perspective, an act of negligence is not just a ‘breach of duty’; it’s a deep blow to the publics in medical practitioners and the entire healthcare system of the country.
We are a part of a law firm network and we help the victims in the best possible manner using our peer group connections and vast resources that we have accumulated across the years. We have been instrumental in a number of landmark cases and we would be happy to utilise our honed skills and experience to your benefit.

Doctor’s negligence – What should you claim for?
Doctor’s negligence is nothing but a doctor not meeting the standard and duty of care specific to his line of work, either intentionally or unintentionally. An act of negligence can result in manifold catastrophic consequences, pain inflicted from injury being the primary one. Besides, the injured patient may lose earning opportunities. He may become isolated from the society as a result of an act of negligence, which may lead to mental depression and trauma. You may be surprised to know that you can claim for compensation for one or all of the above-mentioned grounds. In legal terminology, all of the above effects of negligence are categorised under ‘damages’. We can quantify the damages incurred on you in the aftermath of a medical accident and we will definitely clinch the highest compensation payout in accordance with your case’s merit.
For a complete assessment of your claim and quantification of damages inflicted, get in touch with us using whichever electronic communication medium you feel comfortable with.

Things you should know before filing a claim
We have been serving the victims of clinical negligence since our very first day in this industry. We have noticed that most victims make some common mistakes that become major hindrances in their path to securing compensation. Things that you must keep in mind before filing a case are:
Complain first: You cannot file a claim until and unless you have informed the concerned doctor/authority about the medical error. If your complaint is turned down by the authority, you can proceed towards filing a case.
Get the medical reports: Quantification of physical injuries/resulting illnesses cannot be done if you do not have the medical reports in hand.
The time limit: The general time limit for filing a medical negligence claim is three years. You cannot file a claim post that three-year period unless your case falls under the exceptions of this general rule.
