Making a hospital negligence claim — The Process

Should something go wrong during your treatment or surgery, our medical negligence specialists will ensure the performance of the hospital involved is fully investigated, and that it is held accountable for its mistakes.

We’ll make sure records of your treatment are analysed and considered by independent and respected medical experts, giving us a clear picture of the treatment received, and any failings and errors that could and should have been avoided.

We’ve helped thousands of people claim compensation for hospital negligence, working on a variety of cases including:

  • Accident and emergency (A&E) claims — such as failure to correctly diagnose an injury or illness, failure to make appropriate assessments or take scans, or failure to ensure a patient is seen by a senior member of staff. Each can result in further harm or suffering.
  • Surgical error — such as wrong site surgery and injuries caused by surgery, and misdiagnosis.
  • Poor hospital care — leading to illness, bed/pressure sores, dehydration and malnutrition.
  • Failure to monitor a patient’s condition
  • Birth negligence
  • Orthopaedic claims — including misdiagnosis of fractures, failure to carry out x-rays, failure to properly treat fractures, incorrectly performed surgery.

Vince Shore Hospital Negligence Solicitor

Vince Shore is a senior solicitor specialising in medical negligence claims. Here, Vince highlights the importance of seeking legal representation after being the victim of ill-treatment at the hands of hospital staff:

“Giving a voice, and the very best legal representation to victims of medical negligence, is something we pride ourselves on at Hudgell Solicitors. We are determined to fight for those who have been badly let down. It is our role to get the answers, and to ensure our clients are fully compensated, as this can provide access vital rehabilitation treatment, and recover things such as loss of earnings.

“It is often only when families start legal proceedings that they get to the truth, as our teams are able to instruct independent medical reviews and gather opinions from highly-qualified, independent doctors and surgeons over the care provided, with their conclusions often different to those doctors at the hospitals involved. Thanks to this evice, we’re able to secure admissions of fault, before agreeing a settlement which reflects the suffering and loss our clients have suffered.”
