Have you suffered as a result of clinical negligence?
If so, you have the right to seek compensation.
Compensation for injuries other than clinical negligence
If you have suffered an injury which does not relate to clinical negligence, please seek advice from an Accredited APIL Injury Lawyer.
Accredited clinical negligence lawyers
To help ensure you receive sound legal advice following clinical negligence, APIL has implemented its new standard for accredited clinical negligence specialists. Lawyers achieving this standard are able to manage and progress clinical negligence cases to establish, assert and enforce, in an effective and efficient manner, the rights of a client damaged or disadvantaged by the negligence of a clinical practitioner.
All patients are owed a 'duty of care' by their medical practitioner. No medical treatment or surgical procedure can be guaranteed to be 100% effective, but if you suffer an injury due to the negligence of the nurse, doctor or surgeon involved, then you may be entitled to claim compensation for the injuries suffered.
Types of clinical negligence claim
- Birth injury and cerebral palsy
- General Practitioner (GP) and dental
- Infections and injuries acquired in hospital
Claiming compensation following clinical negligence
If you have been injured or are the relative of somebody who you suspect has died as a result of clinical negligence, you should not feel embarrassed or reluctant about making a claim. You have the right to seek compensation.
Compensation following clinical negligence should help to ease your suffering and help to restore your former quality of life as much as possible. It will also pay for your financial losses and rehabilitation costs if required.
Where somebody has unfortunately died because of clinical negligence, compensation can help those who were financially dependent on the person who has died.
