Gynaecology compensation claims

Gynaecology compensation claims

Medical professionals in obstetrics and gynaecology care for pregnant mothers, unborn children and also look after women’s sexual and reproductive health.

If a misdiagnosis is made or a procedure is performed incorrectly, this can have painful and devastating consequences.

Substandard treatment, poor technique and a failure to follow established guidelines can cause serious complications and may even prove fatal. When the appropriate level of care is not received, you may be able to make a medical negligence claim.

Mr Cadmen
A driver accelerated into my pushbike whilst stopped for a pedestrian to cross the road. Luckily I had cameras both front and rear. Meaning I could try to pursue the insurer of the vehicle through the solicitors team (GDPR got in the way of getting info about the driver from the police). I'd spoken to 2 solicitors, 1 cycle uk, was very evasive and didn't know if they would take on the case. I was pointed in the direction of Hudgells via a friend who'd also won a case with them. I spoken to Susan Richardson. She took on my case immediately. As this was a local solicitor. I was able to drop off the footage from both cameras almost immediately. I had a slight brain injury so was probably not easy to deal with because my brain would just stop mid sentence and I couldn't get my words out. Sue was extremely patient with me. She broke everything down so I could understand what was going on. But better still. In order for me to heal both mentally and physically. I requested that I could distance myself from the case. I gave her full control, she popped back to me as she needed information. But, she allowed me to distance myself to heal. I wouldn't have wanted to deal with the insurance companies myself. It appeared to me they tried to wriggle, squirm and drag it out. Any way. The whole case from beginning to end took 1 year for the case to complete and a pay out to be made. I won my case! I dealt with Sue from start to finish. Thank you Sue and thank you Hudgells. Highly recommended.

FAQs

FAQs

What will my compensation claim cover and provide for me?

At Hudgell Solicitors we pride ourselves on providing immediate support to our clients, which continues throughout all medical negligence compensation claims to conclusion and beyond. This includes;

  • Immediate practical help – Dealing with practical issues immediately at hand, from speaking to employers to signposting to charities and organisations able to offer support.
  • Independent medical opinions – If required we will secure independent medical opinions on the treatment provided to you. This can be crucial in securing admissions of negligence.
  • Financial assistance – We always seek to agree early interim payments with defendants to provide vital support required, such as for home adaptations or aids and equipment.
  • Rehabilitation – We work with some of the country’s best case managers and rehabilitation experts who oversee complete packages of physical, psychological and physiotherapy support.
  • Support with a long-term focus –We partner with financial experts to provide advice after settlement to make sure your compensation has the maximum positive, long-term impact.

How will Hudgell Solicitors help me throughout my claim?

As one of the UK’s leading medical negligence compensation claims teams, our solicitors have decades of experience in succeeding in even the most complex of cases. We understand you’ll want to know why things went wrong and how things will change, and will work to secure you the compensation you need to make the best recovery possible.

How much compensation will I get from my medical negligence claim?

The amount you can expect to receive in medical negligence compensation depends on your specific case details. Factors affecting your NHS compensation can include the nature of your injury or illness, the impact the negligence has on your day to day health, your ability to work and your future health, including any long-term care.

Compensation damages may be awarded for:

  • Pain and suffering caused.
  • Loss of earnings and future loss of earnings (such as being at a disadvantage in the labour market / loss of employability and reduction in potential earnings.).
  • Cost of surgery or medical procedures required after the negligence.
  • Adaptions required to your home to help with daily living.
  • Costs of occupational therapy requirements, such as aids and appliances to assist with daily needs.
  • Costs of current or future care.
  • Travel expenses for medical appointments or equipment.

How quickly can I get compensation?

There is no set answer, however, our team are dedicated to securing interim compensation payments wherever possible, helping people overcome financial worries and cover the cost of much-needed treatment, rehabilitation and often home adaptations.
We have secured many six and seven-figure interim payments in the most serious of cases elating to life-long injuries, ensuring vital support is provided whilst legal proceedings continue.

Can I make a medical negligence claim on behalf of a child?

Agreed settlements will need to be approved by court, but our expert medical negligence solicitors will guide you through this process.

What is the time limit for making a medical negligence claim?

If aged 18 and over, you will typically have three years from the date that the negligence occurred or from the date that you became aware of negligent treatment.

For under-18s, there is no time limit. However, once a child reaches 18, the standard 3 year claim period comes into effect.

Will I need to go to court to claim medical negligence compensation?

Medical negligence claims rarely need to go to court, and usually only do so in very complex cases.
