What is involved in a Medical Negligence Claim?
Medical negligence can be an extremely emotive subject because of the nature of the matter. We understand that recounting the experience can often be distressing and our team will guide you though the claims process and help put you at ease.
To get an understanding of your situation, our team will take detailed instructions from you of the circumstances giving rise to your initial treatment, your symptoms at the time of receiving medical advice, and the procedures or advice you received.
We will then write to the practitioner involved with details of our claim; where they will be obliged to investigate and respond within 3 months of our letter. At this stage it can be determined whether negotiations are to commence or whether Court proceedings are necessary. You will be kept informed throughout and retain full control of the decision-making process.
