So if you’re based in Swindon or the surrounding area, our expert medical negligence solicitors may be able to help you.
Our team have made successful claims against various local medical practitioners, the primary one being Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as well as private hospitals and GP practices.
Unfortunately it is not always possible to restore life to exactly as it was before yours or your loved one’s injury, but our team have the specialist knowledge and experience to help you get as close as reasonably possible.
If you have experienced medical care which has resulted in an injury, or a condition has been made worse as a result of treatment, then you may have a claim for medical negligence.
Ordinarily, a claim will need to be brought within three years of the alleged negligence, or three years from when you became aware of the alleged negligence. However if you are bringing a claim for a child you will have until their 21st birthday to claim, and on behalf of an adult with mental difficulties there is no time limit.
The amount of compensation recovered for a claim depends on the particular injury you have suffered, so you will need to speak to us in order for us to advise you on this further. However, claims of maximum severity (for example those that involve life-changing brain injuries such as cerebral palsy) can settle for significant sums.
There are many different funding options available for medical negligence claims, including ‘no win, no fee’ (also known as a conditional fee agreement) where – should your claim be unsuccessful – you will have nothing to pay.
We aim to bring a claim to a successful conclusion as quickly as reasonably possible whilst maintaining a focus on maximum compensation, but the amount of time it will take depends on a number of different factors. For example, should the person or organisation you are claiming against deny liability, the case could take longer to resolve.
“I would recommend you to anyone who needs help and advice with medical law as I found you easy to talk to and you went through all the options I could take and nothing was too much trouble”.
