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.
