Medical negligence can take place at any point whilst receiving medical attention, from an initial GP visit to surgery and aftercare. This can happen in several ways; including misdiagnosis, mistakes made during surgery or being given the incorrect treatment. When malpractice results in unnecessary suffering and consequences for you or your loved ones, you may be entitled to make a medical negligence claim.
All medical professionals have a duty of care towards their patients, and when that duty of care is breached, the medical body in question should be held to account. Processing a claim can also help prevent the same mistake from happening again; as this drives a thorough investigation to be organised and the mistake is subsequently examined and reported.
Our expert team at NDG Solicitors will support you throughout the process of making a medical negligence claim, providing guidance and empathy during what can be a difficult experience and time for you and those affected.
The process of claiming against a medical professional or healthcare organisation begins with speaking to an experienced specialist about your situation. We can assess your case over the phone for free to determine whether you have a claim for medical negligence.
First, we will collect details about the treatment you received to allow the best possible understanding of the care you received and how it has impacted your life, so that we can ensure that you receive the right amount of compensation to cover your current and future needs.
Once your medical negligence claim/matter has been accepted by us, the next stage is to prepare for the case by obtaining medical records and relevant documentation related to the care you received, as well as a detailed statement. Getting an expert opinion is often also necessary to confirm breach of duty and the subsequent harm that you endured. All this work is completed by one of our expert lawyers, and we will pay for all fees involved under our ‘No win, no fee’ agreement.
Contact us and speak to our Solicitor who are fully trained to ask the right questions and advise if you have a case.
Our medical negligence specialist will assess your case and get back to you quickly with a decision.
If your case is accepted, with your consent, our legal team will request all your medical records.
Medical evidence will be obtained to confirm that the treatment you received was negligent and that this treatment caused an injury or contributed to making an existing condition worse.
Once supportive medical evidence has been obtained a claim will be submitted to the defendant and they will be invited to admit fault. We will then enter negotiations with the defendant to obtain a suitable award of compensation so that you can get back to a similar situation as you were in before the negligent treatment occurred.
It is often difficult for any amount of compensation to fully compensate for pain, suffering and loss of amenities. Compensation can, however, allow you to live a life as normal as possible. You could be awarded financial damages for all out-of-pocket expenses, loss of earnings, and any potential private treatment costs to put things right. It also covers rehabilitation costs and compensation for your injuries and the impact they have had on your day-to-day life.
At NDG Solicitors, we believe that everyone should have the right to seek fair compensation and get the justice that they deserve, without being deterred by financial worries during an already distressing time. That is why we will never ask you for an upfront payment, so you can focus on recovery without the pressure of paying for our service out of your own pocket.
All medical negligence claims are handled on a no win no fee basis. This is basically a legal agreement that makes it easier to pursue financial compensation for medical negligence, no matter what your personal financial status or circumstance. This arrangement means that if your case is unsuccessful, and you have cooperated fully during the process, you won’t have to pay for your legal representation.
The type of financial compensation granted for your medical negligence claim will differ from case to case, but broadly can be split into two categories.
The first is general damages, which compensate for the pain and suffering that you have endured due to medical error from a healthcare professional. This will be based on the severity of your injury or illness, and how much the negligence has affected your life.
You may also be entitled to special damage compensation, which reimburses any out of pocket loses which were a result of the negligent care you received. It also covers any future losses that may occur due to your injury or illness. This could include:
Medication costs; private treatment; rehabilitation costs; travel expenses; medical equipment.

If you think any of the above applies to you - or if you have suffered any similar kind of mental health injury - then the desired help is at hand at no cost to you.
In most cases depending on the type of legal problem that you have, your financial circumstances and the strength of your case you would be entitled to free legal representation under the Legal Aid scheme.
