Those who work in the National Health Service do a great job for all of us, but when errors or mishaps occur, the consequences can be devastating for individuals and their families.
Being on the receiving end of medical negligence can be life-changing and can cause you to remain off work for an extended period of time, or potentially for the rest of your life. If you are the main breadwinner, not being able to work can dramatically affect your income and can create further issues for the future of your family.
Foys Solicitors is the medical negligence expert you need to help you claim compensation, giving you the freedom to continue your life as best you can following an accident. We have an established specialist department who can advise you on the legal steps that need to be taken to claim for compensation.
The areas in which we can provide advice and representation include:
- Gynaecology / obstetrics / birth cases
- Other hospital cases including orthopaedics and general surgery
- GP, dental and optical cases
- Claims relating to residential care
- Fatal accidents
- Private cosmetic surgery
- Medical misdiagnosis
Our solicitors are discrete and sympathetic, and are always dedicated to providing useful advice without all the legal jargon. Our aim is to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve in a way that is stress-free and efficient.
How can you benefit from compensation following a medical negligence case?
Medical or clinical incidents can be life-changing for you and your family. Because of this, claiming compensation for the mistake has the potential to make a big difference in your life.
In an ideal situation, any medical procedure you have is successful, leaving you to recover well with your health being greatly improved. However, some medical procedures are not so positive, causing you to deal with a host of secondary medical issues such as:
- Further injury caused by negligence rather than your original medical issue (such as nerve damage or injury to internal organs)
- Surgical instruments/materials left inside you
- A longer period of recovery than normal (for example, due to unexpected complications)
- Psychological trauma
- Inadequate follow-up care
- Incorrect or delayed treatment as a result of a medical misdiagnosis
- Fatal injury or death
Working with expert solicitors like Foys means that you can claim the compensation you deserve to help make your life a bit easier. The money that you win can make up for any missed wages, pay for expensive specialist care or rehabilitation treatments, and allow you to pay for home alterations (if you find yourself having to use a wheelchair for example).
We can also be there for you if you have lost a loved one to medical negligence. We understand that this can be a difficult time for you, which is why we aim to assist you as best we can, all the while being sensitive to your needs.
Funding your case
Worries about money shouldn’t stop you from deciding to file a medical negligence case. At Foys Solicitors, we can advise you on potential funding that may be available to you. We can also work with a ‘no win no fee’ agreement in mind, which allows you to pursue your case under the guarantee that if you don’t win, you will not have to manage the costs of your case.
Getting in touch with us directly and meeting with us during a free initial consultation is the best way to determine whether or not you qualify for legal aid to help support your medical negligence case.
