In short - yes. This is a common question in personal injury or clinical negligence claims and has recently come before the High Court in judicial review proceedings.
We know that our clients would far prefer not to have to make a claim after suffering an injury but often it is a necessity because of the impact of the injury on their health, family and finances. We work to understand every client’s needs and aims in order to rebuild their lives. We do not focus solely on money: we know financial security is important but we understand that rehabilitation, getting the right care at home after leaving hospital, difficulties with state benefits and the impact upon employment and family are all important. We can involve the wider team to help on many of these and other related issues where appropriate.
Simply put, when you are treated by someone working in the healthcare profession, you are owed a duty of care. You are putting complete trust in them to give you the best possible care and treatment. Most of the time a high standard of care is exactly what you will receive but sadly mistakes and errors do happen. If this does happen, then we are on hand to support you every step of the way, whether this is just to obtain some advice or if you wish to make a full claim against the healthcare professional in question.
