Cancer misdiagnosis claims
If you have been diagnosed with cancer we know how difficult it can be for the whole family to deal with. You expect the NHS to give you the right care you need to pick up cancer at an early stage so it can be treated quickly and does not spread. However sometimes the NHS fails to pick up symptoms and signs of cancer which means a person is left undiagnosed and untreated for a period of time. In this time the cancer can spread and you may need to undergo more invasive treatment because of this. If you have been a victim of cancer misdiagnosis get in touch today and we can set up an initial assessment today.
Pressure sore claims
When you or a family member are admitted into hospital for a lengthy period of time the doctors and medical staff need to make sure you receive the right care and movement to ensure that you don’t suffer from pressure sores. Sadly this is not always the case and some people are left in a hospital bed all day with no movement and due to this suffer from pressure sores. There are 4 different stages that you could suffer from and if you suffered from pressure sores due medical negligence you could be eligible to claim against the NHS.
Childbirth negligence claims
The birth of a child is supposed to be one of the most special times in someone’s life however some people do not receive the care they need during this time. If NHS midwives do not give new mothers the care and help they need when giving birth it can cause serious injuries to mothers that require further treatment. However childbirth negligence can also cause issues to the baby as well for example if the midwives don’t pick up the signs of the baby’s shoulder being stuck this can cause shoulder dystocia. If you or your baby have suffered from medical negligence childbirth that has caused injury contact us today.
Dental nerve damage claim
Going to the dentist can be a scary experience for many people and this can be made even worse if you suffer from dental negligence. When having a tooth removed or having any other work carried out you hope that you get the best treatment possible to ensure everything goes to plan. However some NHS dentists make mistakes and this can cause nerve damage. If you have been a victim of this you may be eligible to make a dental nerve damage claim. Contact our specialist team today to claim against the NHS for the negligence that you have suffered.
How Long Will My Medical Negligence Claims take?
When bringing forward a medical negligence claim there is no set time frame and this is because every victim’s case is completely different and has caused different injuries and effects on their life. Therefore, our expert medical negligence solicitors peer into every case with a different approach to ensure you get the legal aid that you required. If your case shows clear negligence or you have received an admission of fault from the medical professional your case could be wrapped up with in a year. However some cases may take up to 3 years to be concluded depending on the severity and nature of your injury or if the case is more complicated.
In the UK you have a 3 year limitation period to bring forward a claim. This means from your date of injury or from the date you know you have sustained the injury you have 3 years to bring forward a medical negligence claim. However there are some exceptions to this rule:
Mental capacity- If a loved one has no mental capacity you have no time limit to bring forward a medical negligence claim on their behalf for an injury they have suffered due to a drop in the standard of care they have received.
Children- If your child is under the age of 18 and has suffered from an injury due to medical negligence their limitation period doesn’t start until they are 18 years old which effectively gives them up until the age of 21 to make a claim. However you are able to bring a claim forward on their behalf at any time before they are 18 and our specialist solicitors can help you to do this.
