QUESTION: How do you know if you have a valid legal claim?
If you decide to press ahead with a valid legal claim for compensation, in the first place, an especially supportive medical negligence solicitor should investigate your case. Because to make a successful claim, your health solicitor must establish:
That the healthcare professional did something that fell below the standard of care expected of a reasonably competent clinician in the same field of medicine, firstly.
That the medical error caused you an injury, prolonged your treatment or made an existing medical condition worse.
This may sound very simple, in truth, and in other types of personal injury cases, it really is simple. However, medical negligence claims offer a fairly unique complexity. Patients who seek medical advice invariably will have experienced problems with their health before the medical mistake occurs. Moreover, it can be challenging to show that the injuries are the result of a medical error, and not simply a consequence of the underlying medical condition.

Frequency of Valid Legal Claim for Compensation
For example, consider how NHS figures show that between 5,000 and 6,000 amputations occur in the UK each year. The majority of these relate to progressive conditions such as diabetes, but some stem from medical negligence.
The Medical Negligence Experts understand that your situation may appear similar to other people’s on paper. But in actuality, every patient is unique in the way that negligence affects a person’s life. In:
- the nature of their rehabilitation;
- their support network, and;
- the way they approach their new situation.

Factoring in Time Limits
Because so much time passes, you might think that a claim has no chance of success. But that’s simply not the case, as certain claims are claims dealing with time beyond the initial exposure. At The Medical Negligence Experts, we work with solicitors who have proven experience in obtaining compensation for hand and wrist diseases and conditions.
It is the nature of these claims that they often arise long after the exposure. Yet that does not mean that a good compensation lawyer like ours cannot successfully obtain compensation through clinical negligence claims.
Please contact The Medical Negligence Experts today in the event that you want to learn more about a claim. We’ll arrange for you to take a free, no-obligation consultation with a legal expert. Accordingly, they can answer your initial questions and give you the information you need. Above all, you’ll be in a position to decide whether pursuing compensation is the right course of action for you and your family.

Verifying a valid legal claim and moving forward
Once your solicitor has verified you have legal grounds to make a claim, they will notify the other party that you intend to do so. Once this occurs, they will return to collecting evidence to build a claim to support your request.
This evidence can include:
- your personal medical records, and;
- a report from an independent medical expert.
Please note that this report is a very helpful document for your medical treatment compensation claim. It will provide a clear picture of:
- the extent of your injury as caused by the healthcare professional(s);
- on all types of medical negligence cases;
- the effect on your health, and;
- any potential repercussions for the future.
