Blood clot claims

We've got your blood clot claim covered

Blood clot compensation

Blood clots can be extremely serious, so it’s crucial to diagnose and treat a clot promptly. Failure to do so can result in permanent disability, amputation or even death.

If you, or someone you love has experienced negligence in relation to a blood clot, you could be eligible for compensation. Types of blood clot claim:

  • Failure to prevent the development of a blood clot due to negligent care
  • Failure to test for or properly medicate patients who are more at risk of developing vascular issues, such as those with a family history of blood clots or patients who are overweight
  • Failure to prescribe blood thinning medicine to prevent blood clots

What is the impact of medical negligence?

If left untreated, blood clots can develop into serious conditions such as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), or pulmonary embolism, both of which can be fatal.

We helped one client who received a medical negligence settlement after repeat surgery to an inflamed kneecap led to a dangerous blood clot and loss of mobility.

We also represented a 60-year-old nurse after a hospital failed to provide sufficient treatment following a surgical procedure which resulted in bilateral pulmonary embolism.
