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.

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.
