We regularly support our clients in Leeds and the surrounding areas and are available to advise and support you in making a medical negligence claim. We have represented our clients in a wide variety of cases such as cases involving:

 

  • Late or misdiagnosis of diseases and medical conditions.
  • Injuries that have occurred through or as a result of surgery.
  • Delays in the diagnosis of cancer.
  • Injuries sustained due to lack of duty of care such as pressure sores.

 

We understand that with the current situation around the country, you may not wish to attend a physical meeting so we can discuss your claim using a number of methods. These methods include discussing case details on Video Conferencing such as Zoom & Microsoft Teams and via telephone and email should you not be able to or wish to visit our offices in person.

Establishing a Case for Medical Negligence & Compensation Claims

Should you have received treatment that was not to a standard that could be reasonably expected – you have a premise and a basis to create a medical negligence & compensation claim. Should your claim progress against a medical practitioner – they will have a valid defence to your claim if treatment is within line and the view of a responsible body of medical opinion.

This, therefore, results in you having to prove that your injuries would not have occurred if it was not for the negligent treatment of your practitioner. In some cases such as injuries caused by misdiagnosis of an illness or an injury from an illness being treated – you do not have to prove this. This is due to the fact that injuries would have occurred regardless.

At some point during your claim, you will also need to receive a medical report from a medical expert. This report advises on whether treatment provided was sufficient and to a standard that could be reasonably expected. This report will also advise on whether the injury would have occurred even if negligent treatment had not taken place in relevant cases.

We are able to discuss the details of your claim as well as the basis that you may have in terms of making a compensation claim. Get in touch today to discuss your claim.

Time Limits in Making a Claim & Financial Compensation

It’s key to keep records of financial losses that have been suffered as a result of the negligence that you have experienced. This may include special arrangements that you have had to finance such as care or transport. You have 3 years to issue Court Proceedings from the date you first knew or could have been reasonably expected to know that negligence has occurred or that you suffered an injury due to negligence by a medical professional. In some cases should the Court permit this – you are able to make a claim after this period has expired. Families may also make claims for an individual who has passed away as a result of their injuries or illness or who has passed away whilst making a claim for another reason or due to the negligence that has occurred. 

Should you feel that you have suffered from medical or negligence then our team of solicitors are available to advise and support you. We can support you throughout your claim as well as offer advice during the entirety of the claim. 

We have many years of experience representing our clients in Leeds and the surrounding areas. We are committed to helping you and we will deal with your claim on a no win no fee basis. You will not have to enter any credit agreements or loan agreements for your financial peace of mind.
