Stroke compensation claims

Stroke compensation claims

When somebody suffers a stroke it is essential that health professionals make the diagnosis quickly and provide appropriate treatment to ensure the patient is given the chance of making the best possible recovery.

If you feel there was a delay in diagnosis and treatment, or the wrong kind of treatment was provided, it is only reasonable for you to question the medical care provided.

In many cases the stroke could have had less serious consequences with appropriate treatment, or with correct treatment the stroke could have been avoided altogether.

Hudgell Solicitors’ experienced legal team has represented many clients where the standard of medical care in the treatment of stroke was below the level expected.

Examples of negligent stroke treatment

Examples of negligent stroke treatment

The types of medical negligence claims we have been involved with include:

  • GPs or other healthcare professionals failing to spot the symptoms of stroke and not referring patients to hospital (often misdiagnosing the stroke for other conditions).
  • Misdiagnosis of strokes in hospitals.
  • Radiologists missing clear signs of stroke on scans.
  • Doctors failing to prescribe blood thinning medication to prevent stroke.
  • Inappropriate aftercare following a stroke, leading to further harm.
  • Failure to diagnose and management of a transient ischaemic attack (TIA – a mini stroke).

Essential checks in suspected stroke cases

Essential checks in suspected stroke cases
  • All patients with a suspected stroke should have a brain scan within an hour of arriving at hospital.
  • Patients should be examined after a full medical history has been taken.
  • Brain scans should also be carried out to determine if there is a stroke, whether it has been caused by a blocked artery or burst blood vessel, which part of the brain has been affected and how severe the stroke is.

My experience with Hudgell was absolutely incredible from start to finish, particularly with Mobeena, the solicitor behind my case. She was thorough and efficient, keeping me informed at all time. I couldn’t recommend her and the company more, it was dealt with in such a professional manner with great speed too. Thanks Mobeena and thank you to the company!

Completed an online enquiry form. They called back and stated that they were too busy to take the case on! So why allow online enquiries? Clearly an unreliable and useless firm

FAQs

FAQs

What are symptoms and signs of somebody having a stroke?

The most common, but not all, symptoms of stroke are:-

  • Face drooped on one side, not being able to smile, mouth or eye drooped.
  • Weakness or numbness in the arms, unable to lift the affected arm.
  • Slurred speech, not being able to talk at all, problems understanding what people are saying.

What will my compensation claim cover and provide for me?

At Hudgell Solicitors we are committed to providing wherever possible, support to our clients, which continues throughout the claim process to conclusion and beyond. This includes:-

  • Immediate practical help – dealing with practical issues from speaking to employers to referring to charities and organisations able to offer help and support.
  • Financial assistance – we always request early interim payments from Defendants to provide the support our clients need, for example home adaptations, aids and equipment or care.
  • Rehabilitation – we work with some of the country’s leading Case Managers and Rehabilitation Experts who oversee complete packages of physical and psychological support.
  • Support with long term focus – we partner with financial experts to provide advice after settlement regarding the management of compensation.

How much compensation will I get from my stroke claim?

At Hudgell Solicitors we understand that compensation may not be your motivation for bringing a claim. If your case is successful, we will need to work out how much compensation to ask for and this compensation may be for your pain and suffering, your inability to work, any impact on your future health, whether you will require care and assistance amongst other things.

Compensation may be awarded for:

  • Pain and suffering.
  • Past and future loss of earnings (including being at a disadvantage in the labour market and reduction in potential earnings).
  • Adaptations required to your home.
  • Costs of aids and appliances to assist with daily needs.
  • Cost of current or future care.
  • Travel expenses and medical appointments.

Will I need to go to Court to claim stroke compensation?

Most of our cases are successfully resolved without the need to go to Court. We have a proven track record of being successful with the cases that we have taken to Court in cases where the Defendant has refused to accept responsibility or refused to agree the amount of compensation that should be awarded to our client.
