Helping you to rebuild your life after experiencing clinical negligence in Woking

Suffering an injury as a result of clinical negligence can be a very traumatic experience. In addition to the physical injury, its impact on your everyday life and your recovery, you also have to deal with the knowledge that a medical professional who was trusted with your care has let you down. Sometimes, the injuries caused by clinical negligence are serious, with long-term or permanent consequences, so the incident can be truly life-changing for you and your loved ones. 

If you have been let down by a medical professional , you might be able to make a clinical negligence claim for compensation. No amount of money can make up for what you are going through, but a settlement can be used to help with your recovery and to assist you and your family in moving forwards with your life. Making a successful claim can also help give you a sense of justice being done for what happened to you, and it can also lead to changes being made in the medical environment where the incident happened, to stop something like this happening to anyone else in the future.

What is the process for making clinical negligence claims in Woking?

With any potential clinical negligence claims in Woking or elsewhere in England and Wales, the first step is always to take expert legal advice from solicitors with in-depth knowledge and experience in this specific area of law. You can then find out if you are eligible to make a claim.

At Moore Barlow, our team of clinical negligence solicitors in Woking have worked on many cases of this type, which means we’re able to quickly assess potential claims and can provide you with an estimated figure of what the settlement is likely to be if your claim is successful. The amount of compensation paid out for claims will depend on the individual circumstances involved, so is usually different for every case. 

If you choose to proceed with your claim, we will help to gather the necessary evidence to support it and handle all of the communications between you and the other party involved, whether that is a GP, a hospital, a dentist, surgeon or another medical professional who was negligent with your care. They will be given an opportunity to respond to the claim and it’s at this point that they may choose to accept liability for your injury and a settlement can be negotiated.

If the other party wishes to defend the claim, it may be necessary to issue court proceedings, although it is very rare for clinical negligence claims to go to court, as they are usually settled before that stage. You can rest assured that whatever happens with your claim, the team at Moore Barlow offer expert advice at every step, so you always know where your claim is up to and what to expect next.
