How to claim
There are many reasons why a person may wish to bring a claim for medical negligence. However, in the vast majority of cases, Lawyers dealing with Medical Negligence claims find that the victim of a medical accident seeks, first and foremost, an explanation as to what has occurred in their case
Often, people affected by medical negligence are left feeling frustrated with the NHS and the complaints procedure. There is, rightly or wrongly, a perception that NHS employees put up a barrier following any medical accident and it can often be difficult for a patient to get the answers they require. This in turn leads to the patient making a claim for medical negligence.
The medical negligence claims procedure, at least during the initial investigatory stage, often provides the answers that people have struggled to obtain.
That is not to say that Medical Negligence claims should be used solely as a vehicle to obtain answers that should be forthcoming from the complaints procedure; there must, of course, be grounds to bring a Medical Negligence claim.
It is a shame that so many people feel that the only option open to them is a claim for medical negligence, which is why maany organisations are working hard to improve the NHS’ openness during a complaint.
However, until full and frank answers are available to victims of medical accidents many will continue to claim, increasing the burden on the NHS budget.
