Common types of hospital negligence compensation claims

In general, hospitals are clean and are managed to high standards to avoid further injury or infections to staff and patients. However, sometimes these standards are compromised and patients can receive medical injuries from medical negligence and malpractice that are not their fault. These medical errors can range from minor mistakes to major catastrophic errors resulting in injury, sickness and sometimes fatal consequences.

At Thorneycroft Solicitors we deal with a wide range of hospital negligence claims and a diverse range of medical injuries as a result of negligent medical care, including:

    • Slips and trips
    • Patients falling out of bed due to inadequate care
    • Failure to review/monitor fluid levels
    • Failure to carry out proper tests
    • Hospital acquired infections including MRSA and MSSA
    • Doctor or nurse misdiagnosis
    • Providing incorrect medical advice
    • Medical errors during surgery
    • Administering the wrong dose of medication
    • The use of defective hospital equipment
    • Failing to keep proper medical patient records
    • Improper use of anaesthesia
    • Making a claim for hospital negligence

When it comes to making a hospital claim, our specialist solicitors understand that you or a loved one can be overwhelmed by the situation. At Thorneycroft Solicitors we specialise in helping families to understand the hospital claims process and advise on the compensation that may be awarded.

If you, or a loved one, have been treated in an NHS hospital or private hospital, our specialist team of hospital claims solicitors will identify exactly who was responsible. During this process we will investigate the doctors, nurses and technicians involved in your treatment and identify where the responsibility lies for the medical or surgical errors suffered and, if there is evidence of negligence, make an appropriate hospital negligence claim.
