Mistakes are rare but they do happen and whilst it is accepted that such mistakes are not usually intentional the resulting problems can have a devastating effect on a patient’s life.
Dianna Bamforth one of the directors at Ardent Law specialises in such claims and understands just how distressing and traumatic it can be to have to make a claim for medical negligence. Most people will agree that the medical profession provide an excellent service so it is understandable that poor medical treatment can be the source of a great deal of anger and frustration.
Medical Negligence claims can arise from any type of medical treatment whether provided by the NHS or privately, dental treatment or cosmetic surgery.
So what can you do? Claims for medical negligence are not as straight forward as merely proving you suffered an injury. In order to claim compensation you will have to prove that the medical treatment was negligent. At Ardent law we will give you an honest assessment as to whether or not your claim is likely to be successful. You don’t have to decide this yourself; you can rely on our expert professional advice so please let us help you.
We will try to make the process of obtaining compensation for you as simple and straightforward as possible but there are time limits – a claim must be brought within 3 years from the date of treatment or 3 years from the date on which you became aware that the treatment received earlier might justify a claim – so don’t delay.
How will your legal fees be met? We can offer you a number of different funding options and in most cases we will be able to offer a conditional fee agreement (No win no Fee).
We offer free initial consultations and are happy to visit you at home on a weekend and out of hours, whichever is the most convenient.
We would recommend that if you do have a complaint due to hospital treatment and the treatment was within the last year that you contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service by clicking here. We would be happy to draft your initial letter of complaint to PALS should you wish us to do so.
