QUESTION: Will I have to go to court for medical negligence?
Well, ask yourself this: do you want to go to court for medical negligence?
Cases that cannot be settled through negotiation must “go to Court.” This is not as scary as it sounds. It simply means that your case falls under the purview of a judge at a trial. Most Claimants, however, take comfort in knowing only a tiny proportion of medical negligence claims even reach court.
Once your solicitor makes an application, the Court provides a timetable for your case. That, in addition to a complete rundown of all the steps leading up to trial. The Court strongly encourages the early settlement of medical negligence cases and there will be plenty of opportunities to negotiate the settlement of your claim. Even if your solicitor makes a Court application, there is a strong likelihood that your case will settle out of court.
In the very unlikely scenario that your case goes to trial, your solicitor will guide you through the process and ensure that you have the help and support you need.
Understanding medical negligence claims and court
Let’s take the amputation claims to understand the courtroom dynamic. For instance: NHS figures show that between 5,000 and 6,000 amputations happen in the UK each year. The majority of these are related 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 on paper. Still, every patient is unique in the way their lives must shift to life-altering medical negligence injuries. For example, in the nature of their rehabilitation; their support network; and in how they approach the road that lies ahead.
