At Primus Solicitors, we are specialist medical negligence solicitors with a team of medical negligence experts dedicated to assisting those affected by cardiac and heart surgery negligence. We operate on a No Win No Fee basis for most personal injury cases. This means that if we are unsuccessful in your claim, you won’t have to pay any legal fees.
To establish eligibility for a cardiac and heart surgery negligence claim, it is necessary to prove that the medical professional involved owed you a legal duty of care, that they breached that duty by providing substandard care, and that you suffered a cardiac injury directly as a result of their negligence.
- Misdiagnosis and mistreatment of heart attacks
- Failure to diagnose a fatal cardiac arrhythmia.
- Failure to transfer the patient to a heart specialist when required.
- Failure to diagnose heart disease.
To strengthen your claim, it is advisable to provide us with medical records from the hospital where you received treatment. This can help prove that the medical professional was negligent.
The compensation you may receive for a cardiac and heart surgery negligence claim is dependent on the severity of your injuries.
- General damages: Compensation for pain and suffering and loss of amenities in daily life.
- Special damages: Compensation for financial losses, such as loss of earnings, extra medical expenses, home modifications, and travel expenses associated with your medical care.
In most cases, you have three years from the date of the negligence or from the date you became aware of your injury to make a cardiac and heart surgery negligence compensation claim. However, if the claimant was a child at the time of the negligence, they have until their 21st birthday to make a claim.
