    I would like to take this chance to thank you once again, I am most grateful to you for all of your hard work on my behalf. You have turned what could have been for me an awkward and unpleasant situation into one that was in the end quite painless due to your efforts… Thank you once again.
    Mr F

    We work to get the compensation you deserve and each of our Medical Negligence Solicitors is highly specialised and has years of experience.

    Most of our cases are dealt with on a “no win, no fee” agreement so there is no financial risk to you.

    Dealing with medical negligence claims

    When visiting a doctor or going into hospital, you expect that the care you receive will help you feel better and treat your health problem. In the majority of cases, a correct diagnosis is received and efficient treatment prescribed and administered. However, occasionally, things go wrong.

    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.

    Some patients unfortunately experience substandard care, and their life and prospects are altered as a result. If you are one of those who have sustained injuries or illness due to poor quality patient care, you may be able to make a claim for clinical negligence compensation.

    Claims involving medical negligence are complex and will require the help, advice, and representation of Lawyers who have a proven track record in this field.

    At Healys Medical Negligence Solicitors, we understand the nature of such cases implicitly and are able to offer sensitive and holistic legal help so that our clients not only receive the maximum amount of compensation possible, but also gain access to the best treatments and therapies available to help them recover from their medical accident.

    What criteria must be met for a successful claim?

    For a claim against a doctor, hospital, or healthcare practitioner to be successful, there are two significant criteria which must be proved:

    • Breach of duty – you must be able to demonstrate that you received treatment or care which was below a reasonably expected standard from a doctor or surgeon exercising ordinary skill and care.
    • Causation – you must be able to provide evidence that you suffered injury and/or loss as a result of the breach of duty.

    What types of incidents can you claim for?

    Clinical negligence claims can be made for various different medical accidents and treatment inadequacies, including, but not limited to:

    • Misdiagnosis
    • Late diagnosis
    • Failure to treat a condition to an acceptable standard
    • Failure to refer a patient for further investigation
    • Misinterpretation of test results
    • Failure to follow up after a test
    • Failure to act in a timely manner during an emergency situation

    How our Medical Negligence Solicitors have helped our clients

    With Healys Medical Negligence Solicitors you can be assured that you will receive a comprehensive legal service which is always client-focused, performed by experts, and offers a range of first-class legal and non-legal assistance to ensure you receive maximum compensation and the best possible care.

    Below are some brief case studies on how we have helped our clients:

    Jonathan was able to help the husband of 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.
