You can claim compensation for any injuries or losses suffered which are a direct result of the negligent treatment you received.

This can include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Ongoing treatment
  • If you cannot carry out certain activities or hobbies
  • Loss of earnings
  • The cost of any extra care or equipment you may require
  • The cost of adapting your home
  • Psychiatric or psychological injury

What if my loved one has died as a result of clinical negligence?

If the case relates to someone who has died because of clinical negligence, you can claim:

  • ‘Bereavement damages’ of £10,000 if your husband or wife, or your child if they were under 18, died;
  • Loss of dependency if you were financially dependent on the person who died; or
  • A claim on behalf of a deceased patient’s estate.

Will I have to go to court?

Clinical negligence claims rarely end up with a trial in court. Many cases are settled after all the investigations are completed and before legal proceedings are issued, and the majority before a trial commences. Both sides are encouraged to settle the matter quickly and to avoid incurring extra costs.

Testimonials

Excellent, professional and caring. Michaela and her colleagues made the whole process very easy.

Ms A

I have been using McHale and Co for both the sake of my property and the purchase of my new home. Joy handled my sale and was extremely professional, helpful and persevered when dealing with my buyers solicitors who were less than professional to deal with.
Phillippa was equally professional and extremely knowledgeable on purchasing new build properties due to her years of experience in this specialist area. She was supportive and gave me confidence that I was getting a first class service. Would use them again and recommend to my friends and family.

Ms. S

…in the midst of the most stressful situations, I have never felt the need to ‘nudge’ or urge action, I have always been confident in the reliability and consistency in the service received, especially from Liz Connolly.
