In-patients in hospitals, or any health care facility, have the right to expect that during their stay for treatment they will be cared for in a manner conducive to recovering from their ailments.

If a patient’s care is negligent and they suffer a worsening of their condition, a complication, or further illness or injury as a result, then the patient may be able to make a claim for compensation.

  • Free assessment of your claim.
  • One to one contact with your lawyer from day one.
  • Clear and unambiguous legal advice.
  • Visits to you at home, hospital or in a rehabilitation centre.
  • Early interim payments and funding for rehabilitation needs.

Negligent Care Claims

The solicitors at Healys have handled a number of care claims where the standard of care by staff in hospitals, and other facilities, has fallen below that which should have been reasonably expected, and caused the patient harm.

Some examples of negligent care are:

  • Hospital staff not helping patients to eat food, if they are too ill or infirm to feed themselves – this can lead to malnutrition, especially in children and the elderly
  • Patients left on trolleys for long periods of time before admittance to wards
  • Infirm patients being left alone in toilets and bathroom cubicles and suffering falls
  • Patients not being regularly moved in their beds and suffering bedsores as a result

A claim for compensation may be necessary in any instance where the actions or inactions of hospital staff have caused or worsened illness or injury, particularly if this has also led to financial loss.

The clinical negligence solicitors at Healys pride themselves on being approachable and straightforward but with the necessary expertise to offer you a robust and committed litigation service.

Negligent Care Claims 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.

  • Has the Vaginal Mesh Surgery Ban Been Lifted or Not?

    2nd September 2019

    Earlier this year, we wrote about the fact that the government had  ordered that all further surgery involving vaginal mesh implants was to be halted, pending the outcome of a review into its use. Since 2008, transvaginal mesh has been used as a method of treating pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence after childbirth.
