Medical Negligence – Sadly More Common Than You Think
What’s more, medical negligence is more common than you think. Estimates are that as many of 5% of patients undergoing medical treatment may have received negligent care. And in the latest annual report published by NHS Resolution, 17,338 claims were brought against the NHS for medical negligence brought in 2016-17. 9,675 (ie 55.8 %) of these resulted in compensation being awarded. The impact this can have physically, mentally and financially cannot be understated.
If you live in the Ringwood or the New Forest area, our solicitors can help you win the compensation you are entitled to.
Ringwood – Your Only Local Medical Negligence Specialists
Medical negligence law is complex – you really do need an expert solicitor to run your claim. Such medical claims require a detailed understanding of both medical issues and the claims process. So given that your health and financial security is at stake, make sure your solicitor is a specialist.
To be certain that you appoint a genuine medical negligence specialist, you need to look out for membership of one or preferably both of the two key specialist panels for medical negligence solicitors run by the following organisations;
- the Law Society and
- AvMA [the excellent patient justice charity, Action against Medical Accidents]
The head of our medical negligence team, Denise Broomfield, is one of only around 180 solicitors on both the specialist panels – and that is out of well over 150,000 solicitors qualified nationally (not to mention legal executives and numerous unqualified legal staff). Panel solicitors are specially trained to deal with victims of medical errors and to have a solid understanding not only of the law, but also of medical issues.
None of the Ringwood law firms have members of either of these essential medical negligence expert panels.We do.
Why instruct solicitors who aren’t medical claims specialists, or solicitors who are not local and who you never meet – when you can appoint us – your local medical negligence specialists?
And since, if you live in Ringwood, we are just down the road from you, with offices in Fordingbridge and Salisbury, you can rest assured that by instructing us you’re dealing with real specialists.
