Hospital negligence claims

If you receive poor quality care while in hospital, you may be able to claim compensation. Delayed or incorrect medical treatment, misdiagnosis and surgical errors can make your condition worse or cause another condition.

Our Clinical Negligence solicitors specialise in hospital negligence claims, and we can represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis.

What are the types of hospital negligence claims?

There are many types of hospital negligence claims, including:

  • Hospital infections like MRSA
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnose
  • Delayed surgery or treatment
  • Incorrect treatment or medication
  • Surgical negligence
  • Substandard care whilst in hospital, including failure to monitor fluid levels or administer medication

This list is not exhaustive. If you think you have suffered from hospital medical negligence, please talk to our friendly solicitors who can advise you whether you have a case.

How much compensation can you claim?

Hospital negligence claims can range from £1,000 to millions of pounds. The amount of compensation you can claim depends on the nature and extent of your injury, and the estimated time it will take you to recover. Compensation also reflects the physical and psychological injuries and financial implications you suffer.

Who pays for hospital negligence claims?

Many people are understandably concerned about claiming compensation from the NHS. However, compensation is paid by the hospital’s insurance company and does not come directly from the NHS healthcare budget.

Why choose Davisons Law?

Our specialist medical negligence solicitors have many years of experience in securing fair levels of compensation for our clients. We understand the medical conditions that can be caused by hospital medical negligence and the mistakes that can lead to these conditions.

We work on a No Win, No Fee basis and normally pursue claims in conjunction with After the Event (ATE) Insurance to cover expenses, so there is no financial risk to you if you choose to make a claim.

As part of any application for ATE, there is normally a preliminary review of your medical records, which we will collate to assess whether there is a likely negligence compensation claim.
