Hospital & NHS Negligence Claims

Hospital & NHS Negligence Claims

Every hospital negligence claim varies, depending on why you attended the hospital. Sometimes a hospital visit does not go according to plan and mistakes are made. Unfortunately some mistakes can be life changing and leave a person with life changing injuries and losses.  Please call us on 0121 355 0011 for expert legal assistance, we work on a no win no fee basis.

Some of the most common claims involve:

  • Hospital acquired infections
  • Inadequate examinations and investigations
  • Misinterpretation of test results
  • Misdiagnosed conditions
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to warn of the risks of treatment
  • Anaesthetic errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Incorrect medical advice
  • Pressure sores, due to lack of care and attention

The clinical negligence team at Bell Lax Solicitors are experienced in investigating and resolving claims against NHS and private hospitals / healthcare providers.

If you have been a victim of NHS or hospital negligence, you may have a claim for compensation arising out of the  injuries and losses that you have suffered as a result.

An example of one of our cases includes our client who suffered a fractured patella.  Failure to prescribe thromboprophylaxis medication lead to a pulmonary emboli.  Our client was at high risk for this, and the hospital failed in their duty of care when assessing the risk.  Our client was awarded £13,000.

In another example one of our clients had two stents inserted into her ureter during an operation to remove a mass from her bowel.  Later the hospital removed one of the stents and failed to remove the other one.  Our client suffered with repeated urinary tract infections and horrific abdominal pains until the second stent was identified and removed.  Our client was awarded £11,000

In another example, we acted for a client who despite informing the hospital he was allergic to penicillin, he was administered with the antibiotic which lead to tachycardia and hypoxia. Our client was awarded £6,500.

One of our clients had their feeding tube inserted into his lung leading to the development of pneumonia.

One of our clients suffered with sickle cell anaemia.  In hospital she drifted in and out of consciousness and was vomiting.  The blood test revealed low haemoglobin levels and increasing lactate.  Depute this the hospital delayed in providing our client with the urgent and necessary blood transfusion, leading to a heart attack.  Our client sadly died.

Our clinical negligence solicitors have the experience and skill in dealing with these types of claims and seek to obtain the maximum amount of compensation that may be payable to you.  Call us today on 0121 355 0011, for a free no obligation discussion about your injuries.
