Here to help after cardiac negligence.

When you or your loved ones have experienced cardiac negligence, we're on your side.

Common problems include:

  • negligent treatment of heart valve disease, including aortic stenosis
  • misdiagnosed arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythm)
  • misdiagnosed, or mistreated aortic aneurysm
  • untreated hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • misdiagnosed ischaemic heart disease, angina, myocardial infarction (heart attack)
  • poor treatment of endocarditis (infection of the inner lining of the heart)
  • misdiagnosed, or untreated pulmonary emboli
  • undiagnosed congenital cardiac defects.

Sometimes things do go wrong and mistakes can have devastating long-term damage, or in some cases death. Many people are unable to work or can only work at a reduced capacity which in turn leads to significant financial difficulties that can affect the whole family.

You will have the benefit of a team that has represented thousands of clients. As well as obtaining financial compensation, making a claim with us can help you obtain access to vital rehabilitation services to assist you in your recovery. Our team sees a claim both as an opportunity to secure your future (and that of your family) and to throw a spotlight on vital patient safety lessons for medical institutions, avoiding further instances of substandard care.

Claiming for compensation

If the treatment of you or a loved one has gone wrong, we can help you make a claim. A claim will cover both the pain and suffering caused, and compensation for any costs you’ve incurred. This can include anything from money spent on past and future care, to equipment and further therapy.

Your case and the extent of the compensation we will seek will depend very much on the severity of the injury and the effect it is having on your life. No two cases are the same. We will advise you on what you can expect, and keep you informed at all stages.

How much will it cost to make a claim?

We can offer no win no fee funding, otherwise known as a conditional fee agreement. This means our fees are paid as part of your compensation. The benefit of this option is that, if you lose your case, there will be nothing to pay.

How long will the claims process take?

The length of any claim will depend on the nature and complexity of your case. Generally speaking the more complex and valuable a case, the longer it will take to conclude. It will also depend on the actions of the Defendant Doctor or Hospital Trust, sometimes they admit liability early, but frequently liability or the value of the case is vigorously fought, adding a lot of extra time.

We’ve represented thousands of clients over the years, and have acted for many people with heart-related claims. We will help you access vital rehabilitation services as well as compensation, enabling you to make a recovery and be as independent as possible.

The first step to making a medical negligence claim is to contact us as soon as possible – not least because of the legal time limits on bringing a claim. We offer a free initial consultation where we’ll be able to tell you if we think you have a case and how much compensation you might be able to claim.
