There are strict time limitations involved in all personal injury claims, so be aware that claims should be filed as soon as possible. To ensure that you meet these deadlines and don't miss an opportunity to claim, contact one of our experienced compensation lawyers to gain valuable advice on your claim.
Medical negligence claims are often the most difficult to prove. This test is two tiered. First, you must prove that the health care provider's actions were below the reasonable standard of care. This is judged by peers. Next, it must be shown that the negligent action was the direct cause of your injuries.
There are also many sensitivities involved in these types of claims. For example, if a health care professional is found to have acted negligently, they may lose their license to practice, and hence their livelihood. For this reason, it is common for them to attempt to negotiate a settlement with you. Although early settlement can be very advantageous to all parties involved, normally the first offer will be severely less than what you are expecting.
Again we strongly advise that you seek the help of a compensation expert. Our lawyers will negotiate on your behalf, ensuring that you get the best possible outcome for your matter. We can help in every stage of the claims process, from the collection of evidence through to the completion of your matter. We will take the stress out of the process for you, ensuring you have the time to recover from your injuries.
