What Is Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence is a legal concept that arises when a healthcare professional or provider fails to meet the expected level of care when treating a patient. This failure can encompass a wide range of actions including misdiagnosis, surgical errors, prescription errors, and inadequate care. Medical negligence occurs when the healthcare provider’s actions result in harm, injury or a worsened medical condition for the patient. It is a breach of the duty that medical professionals have toward their patients, and it can have severe consequences, physically, emotionally and financially. Legal action may be available to patients who have suffered from medical negligence, allowing them to seek compensation for their losses and suffering.

Whatever the circumstances, if you have been let down or left suffering due to negligent care, you may be entitled to make a claim. As experts with over 25 years in supporting medical negligence claims, we treat every case on its individual merits. You can find out more about medical negligence here.

How Do I Start A Medical Negligence Claim Against A London Hospital Or Trust?

If you would like to pursue a claim against a hospital or Trust in London, you can fill in the Patient Claim Line 30 Second Claim Test, or you can talk to one of our legal professionals for free by calling 0330 107 5313. We want to understand the treatment you received and where you feel it went wrong, so that we can assess if you have a claim. If your case is accepted you will proceed on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Whilst it may seem daunting, our experienced solicitors have been winning claims against London Trusts since 2014 and will explain every step, treating your case with empathy throughout. You can find out more about the Medical Negligence Claims Process here.

How Much Compensation Could I Claim Against A London Hospital Or GP?

Statistics show that up to £83 billion could be owed in medical negligence claims, with the NHS receiving up to 10,000 new claims each year. Every case is different and this means compensation can vary from a few thousand up to millions of pounds. The exact amount will depend on the type of claim and the circumstances of that claim. Securing compensation means proving medical negligence did occur, and that it was this negligence specifically which led to you suffering avoidable pain, injury or life-changing consequences. Your level of compensation will depend on the severity of your injury. For example, Senior Litigation Executive at Patient Claim Line, Amy Kirk, secured £31,000 for her client following the tragic death of his wife, whilst she was in the care of Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Our experienced medical negligence solicitors work on cases across 68 London NHS trusts. A case against Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust resulted in £40,000 damages after our client underwent avoidable surgery with irreversible consequences. We work to understand every detail of your claim so that we can make sure you get the right amount of compensation and care.
