Clinical Negligence Claims


What is clinical negligence?
If you feel that a Health Service Provider (whether Private or NHS) has provided care to you that falls below the standard that you expected, and as a result you have been caused a physical or mental injury you may have a claim for compensation.

Negligence can take many forms:

  • Delay or failure to diagnose a medical condition
  • Delay or failure to treat a medical condition
  • A form of treatment or procedure goes wrong
  • The wrong form of treatment or procedure is used

Health Service Providers can include:

  • GP's
  • NHS or privately funded hospitals
  • Privately funded health practitioners
  • Other health professionals, for example, nurses, occupational therapists
  • Pharmacists
  • Dentists
  • Defective medical products (for example, implants or drugs)

Do I have a case?
If you think that a Health Service Provider has been negligent in your care or the care of a relative you will need specialist advice from a Solicitor.

Robinson’s Solicitors will assess your claim and advise what steps you need to take.

The next steps forward might be making a complaint to the Health Service Provider or pursuing a claim for compensation. Either way Robinson’s has the expertise to assist you.

How will I pay for my claim?
Robinson’s Solicitors will advise you fully on the methods available to you for funding your claim. Methods of funding can include:

  1. “NO WIN NO FEE"
  2. Legal Expenses Insurance
  3. Legal Aid
  4. Private Funding

When should I claim?
The answer is relatively simple – as soon as possible.

However, if you have only just discovered within the last 3 years that you may have a claim then you may be able to recover compensation. A claim for compensation must be settled or legal proceedings must have been issued within three years of the event causing the injury. It may not be possible to pursue legal action if this time limit is exceeded. However there are some exceptions to this rule.

  • In claims for minors the three year period does not start running until the eighteenth birthday
  • In clinical claims the three year period begins to run from the date when the injury was first discovered
  • For some claims the three year period begins to run from the date when the injury was first discovered, or from the date you first became aware of an injury or negligence
  • Judges have discretion to override the time limits

What can I claim for?
You are entitled to claim for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity that the injury has caused together with any out of pocket expenses that have been caused as a direct result of the injury such as:

  • Loss of past and future income
  • Care for the past and care for the future
  • Medical expenses and prescriptions
  • Pain and suffering including psychological damage
  • Loss of amenities of life
  • Reduced employment prospects
  • Legal expenses

It is important to choose a specialist solicitor to ensure that your claim for compensation is fully maximised.
