Compensation For Medical Negligence
Medical negligence can have a hugely disruptive effect on your life. You may not be able to work as a result of your injuries, or require care from family members, or professional carers. One important concern for victims of medical negligence is how much you can claim in compensation for your injuries.
The amount of compensation or damages that you receive will depend on many factors. No two claims are the same with many different examples of medical negligence. It is not always possible for a medical negligence compensation calculator to be completely accurate at the start of a claim. At Graystons your specialist medical negligence solicitor will thoroughly investigate the care you have received and the injuries you have suffered.
This may mean that you have to be examined by one of our carefully selected independent medical experts. With the benefit of this expertise and by giving careful consideration to medical negligence compensation guidelines, we can value your injury as well as including other financial losses you may have incurred, such as lost earnings, prescription costs and the cost of any future treatment you may require. In addition to considering compensation, at Graystons we understand that it is not always simply about the money. Most of our clients are also looking for an apology, an explanation and reassurance that the poor treatment will not be repeated.
Our specialist medical negligence solicitors can advise you about the different options available to you with the NHS complaints procedures and complaints to the professional disciplinary bodies, such as the General Medical Council (GMC) and Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). We are happy to consider these options with you whilst striving to get you the compensation needed to rebuild your life.
