Medical Negligence Compensation
If you’ve suffered an injury due to the neglect or malpractice of a medical professional, you may be entitled to medical negligence compensation. This occurs when a health professional (such as a doctor, nurse, dentist or other care practitioners) breaches their duty of care, such as when they:
- Fail to supply you with appropriate treatment or reporting on results
- Don’t diagnose or treat a condition appropriately
- Didn’t warn you about the risks of surgery or treatment or give inadequate medical advice
- Perform surgery on you (or post-operative care) without reasonable skill or care
You may be allowed to claim for financial compensation if you have suffered financial, physical or psychological harm as a result of any of the above situations. The area of medical negligence is technical, complex and sensitive, but rest assured Lionheart Lawyers can work out if you have grounds for a claim and advise on the best path of action to take after your injury.
