Compensation for negligent hospital treatment

Many people are injured each year following treatment at a hospital or doctors’ surgery. Whether you have been injured as an NHS or private patient, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries.

Examples of hospital negligence claims include:

  • Injuries following surgery
  • Failure to get consent before an operation
  • Failure to identify or diagnose a medical problem
  • Failure to refer a patient for specialist treatment
  • Negligently prescribed or administered medication
  • Bed sore and pressure sore claims
  • Infections picked up in hospital, such as MRSA

Compensation claims for negligent hospital treatment are particularly complicated due to the scientific issues involved, so it is vital to use experienced solicitors who understand the legal and medical issues.
