Have you been the victim of clinical or medical negligence?

Clinical or medical negligence is an injury due to failure in medical treatment.

If you think that you or a loved one may have suffered a clinical or medical accident due to a lack of care the first step is to contact us and tell us what happened. JMK Solicitors can offer you an initial free consultation which will give us a good idea if you have a case.

Once we take your case on, we will review all the evidence and ask a medical expert for their opinion on whether or not you have received negligent medical treatment. We can also advise you whether you should make a complaint.

About JMK

How much does it cost to make a clinical or medical negligence claim, and who pays?

Our initial consultation is free.

We may also be able to offer you the option of our ‘After The Event’ insurance policy.

A non-refundable insurance premium is payable to commence a medical negligence case, and we will discuss this fully with you before taking any action in your case.

Providing that we believe that your case is likely to be successful, the ‘After The Event’ policy will cover your legal costs, even if you are unsuccessful.

If you are successful and the medical organisation or practitioner agrees or is ordered to pay compensation, then they will have to pay costs as well.

If we think that your case is unlikely to succeed, we will tell you and the insurance provider immediately. It will then be your decision whether to withdraw your claim, or to continue at your own expense.

Client Case Study

Our Client, a high school pupil, consulted us in late 2010 following receipt of medical treatment provided by a local A & E department when she was sent home without proper investigation of severe abdominal pain and suspected appendicitis. This resulted in her suffering a perforated appendix which required complex emergency surgery, a prolonged hospital stay and scarring. This also impacted upon our client’s studies at a crucial time. We were delighted to successfully establish that the delay in treatment to our client fell short of the standard expected from the hospital and the doctor and that this caused our client’s injury, which resulted in the case settling in her favour for a five-figure sum.

How much is my case worth?

The answer to this question is different for every case. If you have sustained a personal injury, medical or clinical, through no fault of your own, then you should be entitled to compensation.

We can help you obtain any payment you are entitled to for your medical expenses plus compensation for pain and suffering. If your injury was serious, we can help you obtain compensation for loss of earnings in the past, present or future as well provision for future care including housing adaption, vehicle and equipment needs.

As we are personal injury specialists, and have processed thousands of cases, we will  give you an estimate of how much we think your particular case is worth.

We will give you an honest and expert opinion on the value of your case. Call us on 028 9032 0222 or email us today to arrange a free consultation.
