There are many scenarios in which it can be necessary to commence a claim against a hospital for medical negligence or otherwise. Healys has particular expertise in helping clients successfully claim against hospitals. Here at Healys, we know how stressful and upsetting making a claim can be, especially given that you will already have suffered as a result of the issues caused by the hospital. We pride ourselves on getting the best results possible for each and every one of our clients. Not only do we have first class legal knowledge and expertise, but we focus on client care and attention too.

This approach means that we can represent you and your interests more fully and robustly than if, like so many other firms, we solely focus on quick results and a large number of clients. In other words, we get to know each and every one of our clients as best we can.

You may have received incorrect treatment at a hospital, been subject to a misdiagnosis or late diagnosis, or experienced botched or a poor standard of surgery. In all of these circumstances, and others, Healys can assist you.

“I feel very fortunate to have found Jonathan and would not hesitate to recommend him. He is very professional, responsive, practical, and thorough – everything you need in a solicitor! He always took the time to explain the legal issues in plain terms, and I appreciated his practical approach. I had only to describe my situation and experience to him once in an initial conversation, and was surprised to find all the details in the subsequent letters and documentation which correctly and accurately summarised my position. He was helpful, knowledgeable, fair and supportive every step of the way. Thank you Jonathan for all of your help and support!”

Making a Complaint Against a Hospital – Expert Advice

Making a claim against a hospital can often be a long and complicated process. This is because the law surrounding healthcare and the associated rules in place mean that a great deal of time and effort is required in order to prepare, present and win a case. Very often, depending upon the complexity and seriousness of the case, it may be necessary to go to court in order to resolve the matter.

Healys is able to help you throughout the entire process, from initial advice through to court appearances and representation.

Collectively, we have over half a century of experience in dealing with claims against hospitals at all levels, with a particular expertise in dealing with more complex and difficult cases.

Because of our considerable knowledge and expertise, you can be confident that Healys not only has the experience and skill to deal with your case efficiently and effectively, but that we also have a track record of doing so successfully.

When you first contact the medical negligence team here at Healys, we will take as much time as necessary to get to know about you, your circumstances and precisely why you are looking to make a claim against a hospital. Importantly, we will also want to get to know you as an individual, together with exactly what you hope to achieve through your hospital claim.

We also recognise that the difficulties you have faced will have had a wider impact, not just upon you, but also upon your loved ones. Finding out about this is equally important, as it can have an effect on the outcome of your case.

Hospital Negligence experiences
  • Jonathan was able to help the husband of a 50 year old woman claim compensation after the hospital failed to diagnose her cancer. Mrs L attended hospital complaining of pain in her abdomen. She was discharged without further tests but unfortunately she died of thyroid cancer a few months later. Jonathan argued that the chance for a liver biopsy was missed during her visit to hospital and although this would not affect the unfortunate outcome, palliative care could have been arranged to ease Mrs L’s suffering. Jonathan was able to secure Mrs L’s husband a five figure sum in compensation.
  • Jonathan has also helped the family of a 71 year old man claim compensation after a complication in his surgery caused his death. Mr R was suffering from chest pains and was admitted to hospital for tests. He was found to have an issue with his heart and doctors attempted to rectify this with a surgical procedure. Unfortunately during this procedure an air pocket had got into one of his blood vessels which caused Mr R’s death. With expert medical evidence Jonathan was able to secure Mr R’s family £75,000 in compensation.
  • Jonathan helped X get further compensation and access to services to aid in his rehabilitation. X was a subject of sexual abuse from his step father between the ages of 5 and 7. Initial application for compensation was made in 1990 and X was awarded £10,000. After several attempts at his own life, X decided to contact Jonathan to seek further compensation. Jonathan was able to secure X £200,000 in compensation and an overall award of £1,200,000 inclusive of state benefits. More importantly Jonathan then arranged the Special Needs Trust to support X’s rehabilitation.
  • Jonathan helped the parents of Baby B claim compensation after a failure in care during labour resulted in Baby B’s death. Initially the Trust denied they were responsible for Baby B’s death but after negotiations the Trust admitted responsibility and Jonathan was able to negotiate an out of court settlement for Baby B’s parents.

  • Woman Injured Loading Gazebo Into Van Wins Damages

    29th November 2018

    Gazebos are used by all kinds of organisations when attending events up and down the country. It may not seem that an employer’s duty to assess and minimise workplace risks would extend to tasks such as carrying and assembling gazebos, but a recent case shows that it does. Continue reading »

  • Mother Of Disabled Child Ruled A ‘Primary Victim’ Of Hospital Negligence

    28th November 2018

    In order to succeed in a ‘secondary victim’ claim as a result of clinical negligence it is necessary to establish that the claimant suffered psychiatric illness or injury – as opposed to grief, sorrow, deprivation or the need to provide care for the loved one who has suffered the injury – as a result of witnessing a sudden, shocking event. Given the number of hurdles a claimant has to clear to show that the many tests have been met, there have been very few successful claims to date. Continue reading »
