You may have a claim if you have suffered as a result of surgery that was undertaken negligently. Whether this surgery was undertaken via NHS or private treatment, you are still entitled to a high standard of care. When that standard of care falls below the required standards it can result in additional pain and discomfort. In some cases you may require remedial surgery as a result.
In cases such as these, our medical negligence solicitors that specialise in surgery claims will be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
Our Client Promise
Our expert Medical Negligence Lawyers will be able to advise you on whether you have a good chance of claiming compensation, as well as assessing your claim’s value. All of our initial consultation work is free and the vast majority of claims go on to be funded by a conditional fee agreement (also known as “no win, no fee”). For more details of this please see our Fees & Funding section.
We pride ourselves on our customer service. As part of our customer promise, we will seek to obtain an early settlement for you. In some cases we are able to obtain interim compensation payments on your behalf that can be used to pay for your continuing care or reduce any financial hardship you may be suffering as a result of your injury. We also aim to ensure that you get all the rehabilitation support that you need.
