What are No Win No Fee Claims for Medical Negligence?

negligenceMedical negligence, or clinical negligence to give it its more modern name, is when a medical practitioner makes a mistake while treating a patient.  This could be:

  • A Doctor misdiagnosing an illness or ignoring important symptoms.  The results of this sort of negligence can be devastating and cause the patient much pain and discomfort.
  • A Pharmacist giving the wrong medication or the wrong dose of the correct medication.  This could cause the patient to be really ill, or they could have all sorts of dreadful side effects.
  • A Dentist could remove the wrong teeth, or slip with the drill and cut the mouth or face.  Does not sound too bad, but why should anyone have to go through the discomfort of having dental treatment more then they have to.
  • A Hospital can cause untold damage if they remove the wrong limb or mistreat a patient.  They deal with many millions of patients every year and most of them are perfectly happy and thankful for the treatment they have received.   But if you are one of the unfortunate ones where something has gone wrong, no win no fee claims for medical negligence may be the way forward for you.
  • An Optician would not normally cause you an accident when you are visiting for an eye test.  They could however make a mistake when performing the simple procedure of laser eye surgery. The majority of errors with laser eye surgery can be corrected by carrying out the procedure a second time, but not all.
  • A Practice Nurse may not use the right method when taking a test.  This could give flawed results and mean an illness could be missed.
