    How are medical negligence settlements reached?

    If a health solicitor prepares your case well, there’s a very good chance the Defendant admits liability. That’s the case with all medical negligence settlements, whether you’ve

    • suffered a fracture;
    • experience a delayed diagnosis;
    • a family member experiences unnecessary pressure sores;
    • a child suffers cerebral palsy;
    • or, if you endure early-stage cancer that doctors failed to diagnose in a timely fashion.

    In turn, your solicitors negotiate a settlement that is equitable for you and the damages you suffer. In short, thanks to sound legal advice, clinical negligence claims can arrive at a reasonable conclusion.

    The medical negligence solicitor handling your claim will be able to provide you with legal guidance during the entire process and secure the maximum compensation for your injuries.

    The aim of compensation is very simple: to return you to the position you would have been in but for the medical mistake. Thus, the amount of compensation you receive will depend on the nature of your injury and the impact it has had on your health and wellbeing.

    What you can expect with The Medical Negligence Experts

    You can expect compensation for the following:

    • First off, cover for pain and suffering;
    • Next, the opportunity to pursue claims against either private or public healthcare, including NHS trusts;
    • Loss of lifestyle (in essence, the way your life changes post-injury. Such as a loss of ability to work or enjoy hobbies);
    • No win, no fee agreements that remove the onus of funding a claim;
    • Also, there might be an immediate loss of earnings or possibly even future earnings;
    • Moreover, funding for any costs to diagnose and treat your condition, even if you’re admitted to hospital;
    • The cost of prosthetics, medical aids and other medical and personal equipment, as well;
    • Furthermore, you might incur some sizeable travel costs.
    • Finally, you might need some assistance with day-to-day activities and other personal care.

    Receiving damages when we negotiate a settlement

    In short, receiving damages for medical negligence won’t ultimately make you healthier. But it will enable you to achieve reasonable financial protection against the consequences of your injury.

    Reputable medical negligence solicitors will work hard to achieve a fair and reasonable level of compensation. Accordingly, you can pay for your medical care and have the resources to cope with any problems in the future.

    We work exclusively with UK firms authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

    At TMNE, we support clients in their quest for equitable medical negligence settlements. In fact, we do this in a myriad of ways:

    • Investigating their situation thoroughly to ascertain whether their claim has a good chance of success. The onus is on the claimant to prove negligent care causes their injury, and it can be painful if it fails.
    • Collecting and organising evidence to present a solid case to the responsible care provider that supports your claim for compensation, which can also include putting you in contact with the right independent medical experts for their assessment.
    • Negotiating an acceptable amount of compensation based on your circumstances, and what has claimants with similar injuries to yours have received in the past.
    • Representing you and supporting you should your claim go to court. In short, this might happen either due to the responsible party:
    • disagreeing with the claim, or;
    • their outright refusing to pay fair compensation.
