Hudgell Solicitors offer a free no obligation consultation to talk about what happened and to help understand whether or not we think you have a claim.
We’ll do all we can to take the worry and hassle out of making a claim and gather all the medical evidence to make sure your case is as strong as possible.
There is usually a three year time limit in place for claiming medical negligence compensation. This time limit will run from either the date that the negligence occurred or from when you first became aware of the injury being caused by negligence.
For under 18s, the three-year time limit for claiming compensation does not apply. However, when a child does turn 18; the three-year time limit comes into effect on their birthday where legal proceedings have to start before their 21st birthday.
The time limitation does not begin until the legal incapacity is removed or in the case of a patient being treated under the Mental Health Act 1983, from when they are discharged as a patient.
Our clinical and medical negligence claims are funded through a No Win No Fee agreement, meaning that there is no financial risk to you.
There are a number of other ways that may be available to you, including:
Please see our Terms of Business for full details on funding options available.
A claim will be able to provide financial compensation which will go towards making life more manageable following the incident. It will go towards enabling you to have the best quality of life and covering any expenses or loss of earnings that you may have incurred along the way.
We will take into account factors such as further treatments needed, possible adaptations to your home or care costs that may have arisen following the negligence.
It is not always compensation that is sought when someone has been affected by substandard medical treatment. Sometimes people simply want an apology for the suffering that has been caused and to be assured that it won’t happen to anyone else.
Our solicitors can talk you through the process of making a complaint should this be all you wish to do and can give advice on whether or not you should be pursuing a claim.
