Gynaecology Negligence Claims
As a woman, seeing a gynaecologist is a critical part of looking after your health. However, if your gynaecologist fails to provide the proper treatment, and you suffer injury or illness, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation due to medical negligence. At Primus Solicitors, we are here to help you get the compensation you deserve for your suffering.
As the best medical negligence solicitors in the UK, we understand that a mistake on the part of a medical professional can be distressing and traumatic for the patient. That is why our team of medical negligence experts is here to provide you with the legal guidance you need to get the compensation you deserve.
As a medical negligence law firm, we offer our services on a no-win-no-fee basis. As clinical negligence solicitors, we believe that if you don’t win your claim, you won’t have to pay any legal costs.
Before we take on your claim, we need to establish that the medical professional owed you a legal duty of care, which they breached, causing your injuries due to their negligence. Common gynaecology mistakes include delayed diagnosis of cervical cancer, failing to notice damage to organs such as the bladder, bowel, and uterus, misinterpreting results or failing to read x-rays correctly, and more.
When making gynaecology negligence claims, we advise you to provide us with photographs of any visible injuries, witness statements from anyone who may have been with you, a copy of the complaint report, in writing, to the company that performed your surgery, a medical report from the GP surgery, or possibly the A&E department where you sought medical advice and a record of the financial losses you have suffered as a result of the injury.
The compensation you will receive for gynaecology claims is dependent on the severity of your injuries. General damages are compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve experienced due to the negligence in your daily life, as well as any loss of amenities. Special damages are compensation for any financial losses such as loss of earnings, extra medical expenses, any home modifications, travel expenses associated with your medical care, etc.
For gynaecology negligence claims, you will usually have three years from the date the negligence first occurred, or the date when you were first aware of your injuries caused by the negligence. However, if you were under 18 when you suffered the injury or illness, you will have 3 years to make a claim from the date of your 18th birthday, meaning you have until you are 21 years old to make a claim for gynaecology negligence.
