Medical error legal advice Bath
Failing to diagnose and treat a 3rd degree tear is an unacceptable medical error. If you have been the victim of such a medical error, you need to talk to a solicitor about the care you received.
A solicitor will ask you about the care given while you were in hospital, as well as afterwards by your GP and Community Midwives. A solicitor will also ask how you discovered you had a missed 3rd degree tear, what injuries you have been left with and how it has affected your life.
After obtaining all this information, a solicitor will consider your case before offering professional legal advice. If you are told that you have indeed been the victim of negligent medical care, you will be able to pursue a medical negligence claim, if you so wish.
Claiming compensation for poor medical care Bath
If you decide to make a claim, your solicitor will handle the process for you. You will be needed to assist with the claim – for example, you will need to provide a witness statement and detail and money you have lost as a result of your injuries.
If the claim is successful, you will be awarded a sum of compensation. The amount will not be known until a barrister has been asked to comment upon the value of your claim. However, your solicitor will ensure it is a fair reflection of your injuries – incorporating your physical, emotional and financial damage.
