Consultant negligence compensation claims

You could be entitled to make a claim for medical negligence compensation for any personal injury, losses and expenses incurred as a result of consultant negligence.

This could be a consultant at a hospital, or GP surgery, or from a private institution. If it is their negligence that has led to you suffering, you can be entitled to justice. Whether we pursue a claim against an NHS Trust or another employer, or through a consultant’s insurance directly, you have options for justice.

Some examples of when you could be eligible to receive compensation can include:

  • Negligent advice, whether this means a lack of advice or the incorrect advice;
  • Mistakes during treatment or surgery;
  • Inadequate aftercare.

Ultimately, if you have suffered due to an avoidable event, this is when you can normally make a case. We need to establish that you have been the victim of negligence. If we can do that, you could be entitled to damages.

How we prove the case

We must prove that you have been the victim of consultant negligence in order for us to be able to succeed with a case. There are times when unavoidable instances occur and people suffer, or some things just happen and are not the result of negligence.

To prove negligence, we can instruct our own private consultant who is qualified to provide a medico-legal report for us. This report will normally be based on an appointment with you, your medical records, and the expert’s own opinion. If they believe that the evidence shows that you have been the innocent victim of negligence, we can use the report to support the legal case.

The report can also be used to identify the extent and severity of the suffering and loss you have endured as well. We can then use this evidence to value your claim and negotiate a fair settlement based on your pain, suffering and loss of amenity. Any losses and expenses like lost earnings from time off work or private treatment costs, can also be included.
