As a patient, you have the right to quality and responsible care from the healthcare providers and institutions you trust in our country. Happily there are many excellent surgeons, consultants, doctors and other health care providers in this country. But the sad truth is that medical errors and failures happen all too frequently, and the results can be catastrophic for you the patient.
We are all aware that our health service is far from perfect. Hospitals have chosen to reduce the number of nurses that care for patients. Doctors unfortunately do not spend enough time with their patients. There are often major critical communication breakdowns. Doctors, nurses, and other medical providers face increasing pressure to cut costs as our Government becomes more and more aware that we have a health service that we increasingly cannot afford. As a result, our health service professionals sometimes fail to meet the standards of care that we expect and that they have an obligation to meet. In the legal world, this is known as medical negligence and it is becoming one of the biggest public health problems we face.
You need personal injury solicitors who will take the time to listen to you, understand your concerns, and come up with solutions that can make your life better, including a lot of useful advice on the recovery you are undertaking. After all we have the experience of advising many hundreds of people in medical negligence claims.
Although patients have the right to recover compensation for harm that has been caused by the medical negligence of health service providers, these are claims for compensation that are among the hardest and most expensive claims to prove.
We have helped countless victims who have been harmed by medical negligence and we understand the many challenges you are facing today. We fully realise that beyond the physical struggles, the stressful and financial situation can be overwhelming for you.
