Have you received poor care from a nursing home; private care provider or a home care service?
Not all healthcare disputes arise out of treatment provided by Doctors or at Hospitals. We regularly help vulnerable clients who haven’t received the standard of care they should have, and are unable to help themselves.
This is why it is important to seek legal advice from one of our team straight away. We will then advise you fully and guide you through the claim process if we believe you have reasonable prospects of bringing a successful medical negligence claim.
Healthcare disputes claims can be brought against anyone that has treated you, and must be brought to court within three years (in rare cases you can exceed this) of the date you first knew, or could reasonably have been expected to know, that you had suffered a significant injury caused by someone else’s negligent acts or omissions. In the case of a child the three years runs from their 18th birthday.
Here are some examples of more general healthcare disputes which arise outside of Hospitals and GP surgeries and we have advised clients on:-
- Failure to provide food or fluid
- Failure to treat / care for, in accordance with an agreed plan
- Bed sore claims
- Failure to provide medication at all or in accordance with a plan
- Failure to monitor and treat cannula problems
- Failure to refer for specialist medical assessment
