How to make a claim

To bring a successful medical negligence compensation claim it has to be shown firstly that mistakes were made that in law amount to medical negligence and secondly, that, as a result of those mistakes, you have suffered an injury.

Making a successful negligence claim

For your claim to succeed your case for medical negligence needs to be supported by independent medical experts and we have close connections with experts in all medical disciplines and one of the largest databases of medical experts in the country. 

We will take witness statements from you and others connected to the negligence and obtain your medical records.  We will then go through all the issues again in greater detail and arrange for an independent medical assessment.  In complex medical negligence cases we may need to involve doctors from many disciplines.   

Working to get you the compensation you deserve

We will work with you to fully assess the consequences of your injury. This may involve as well as doctors experts in the areas such as accountancy, care, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, architecture, prosthetics, speech and language therapy, education, etc. 

We will then put your case to the defendants and if possible seek to negotiate a settlement. If this is not possible we will arrange for court proceedings to be prepared and your case driven through the courts to the best settlement possible or very occasionally to trial.

Don’t be worried about the trial 

Over 95% of all medical negligence cases we deal with settle without the need for trial. 

The length of time your case will take depends on the complexity of the issues and most importantly how long we need to wait before we can fully assess your future needs. Some negligence cases settle in a matter of a few months if the hospital are prepared to negotiate an early settlement.  Some may take up to three years should we need to go all the way through to trial. In exceptional cases the time scale may be longer than three years. We will be able to tell you how long your case is likely to take when we first speak to you.
