Medical Negligence Injuries
Medical negligence injuries (also known as clinical negligence injuries) can be severe both physically and psychologically, not least because they are caused by those whose hands we place our trust and our lives in. This is not to say that medical professionals set out to cause injury, in most cases injuries are caused by negligence.
Medical professionals such as doctors, surgeons, general practitioners and dentists have a duty of care towards their patients and any breach of that duty, resulting in injury to the patient, could allow the patient to make a claim for compensation.
If you have suffered a medical negligence injury then you should speak with our specialist medical negligence injury lawyers** in Manchester who will fight your case on a no win no fee* basis. A medical negligence injury lawyer in Manchester will not only be able to get you compensation for your injuries, but will also be able to recover any other losses such as subsequent medical bills, expenses such as travel and any loss of income. This compensation will be paid out by the medical professional’s insurance company.
The amount you can claim is the same regardless of whether you are treated privately or under the national health service (nhs) as both sets of medical professionals owe the same duty of care. The only difference is claims against the nhs are managed by the national health service litigation authority.
