Medical Negligence Solicitors Wokingham, Reading & Farnham

This country has some of the best medical professionals in the world and both the NHS and private sector provide an excellent and unrivalled service. Unfortunately though, medical professionals are only human and sometimes mistakes do occur. These mistakes are of course never deliberate, but can be negligent and if you have been the victim of such a mistake you may be entitled to claim compensation for that negligence.

It is important to remember however that all medical treatment carries some inherent risks and just because the treatment has gone wrong or has not been successful, does not necessarily mean that you have been treated negligently.

The consequences of medical negligence (often also referred to as clinical negligence) can be from minor to catastrophic ranging from just a small delay in your recovery to regrettably sometimes a loss of life. If the consequences are more serious this may result in you incurring greater losses and expenses during your lifetime including loss of earnings and the cost of care. You may be entitled to recover these sums if they arise as a result of the negligence.

The following are just some examples of the types of medical negligence claims that may arise:

  • misdiagnosis
  • delay in diagnosis and/or treatment
  • failures in treatment following surgery
  • mistakes during surgery
  •  incorrect treatment
  • failure to warn of risks of surgery
  • failures in dental treatment e.g. extracting the wrong tooth, failed implants etc
  • unnecessary treatment
  • birth injuries
  • cosmetic surgery claims
  • failure to interpret scans and records correctly
  • wound infection and poor hygiene
  • retained objects inside patients following surgery
  • errors in prescription of medication

Medical negligence claims usually involve issues of a very sensitive nature and we will handle your claim with great sensitivity and in a sympathetic manner.

There are very strict time limits in which to bring a claim for medical negligence, usually within three years from the date of the negligence, so if you think you may have been the victim of medical negligence, do not delay and please telephone us for further advice. Many medical negligence claims can often be dealt with under a “No Win No Fee” arrangement and we will consider and advise you whether you may qualify for this.
