Whilst thankfully, most medical treatment is performed very well, there are inevitably going to be occasions when the treatment may go wrong and an injury to the patient is suffered as a result. This can be misdiagnosis; labour/birth injuries and surgical errors. In order to be successful in a medical negligence claim, you need to be able to prove that the treatment given to you fell below an acceptable standard, and secondly, the treatment complained of has led to your injury.
Whilst we will obviously try to settle your medical negligence claim as swiftly as possible, medical negligence claims can be quite complex, and can sometimes take a number of years to settle. If the medical body involved admits liability at an early stage, it is likely that your claim could be settled more quickly than one of where liability is in dispute, and court proceedings require to be raised.
This very much depends upon the extent of your injuries and other losses sustained as a result of your injuries. You are entitled to recover what in Scotland is known as solatium damages. This basically covers you for the cost of the pain and suffering associated with the injury itself. The amount is based on a set tariff which refers to previous awards given by the courts for similar injuries. If you required time off work to recover from your injury or indeed you require further treatment which results in further time off work, then you will be entitled to recover the losses flowing from this additional treatment.
If you have suffered an injury as a result of a medical procedure, had your condition worsen, or received medical treatment that was below the standard you expected, you may be able to bring a claim for compensation. We offer a free initial consultation to assess whether you can bring a claim. There is no obligation to continue, so if you believe you have suffered medical or dental negligence get in touch with our team today. There are strict time limits for bringing a claim, so there is no time to delay, contact Calio Claims to get the advice and assistance you need.
