Nursing Negligence Compensation Claims
At Primus Solicitors, we understand the responsibility nurses have in providing high-quality care to their patients. While mistakes can happen, nurses are expected to meet reasonable standards of care. If you have suffered an injury or illness due to nursing negligence, you may be eligible for compensation.
Our team of specialist medical negligence solicitors, experts in handling compensation claims, can help you get the compensation you deserve. We offer a No Win No Fee service for medical negligence claims, ensuring you won’t have to pay any legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful.
To establish eligibility for a nursing negligence claim, we need to prove that the medical professional owed you a legal duty of care, which they breached by falling below the required standards of care, and that you suffered injury as a direct result of their negligence.
Examples of nursing negligence that may lead to a compensation claim include failing to monitor a patient’s condition, administering incorrect medication, and failing to follow hygiene and safety procedures.
To help us build a strong case, we advise you to provide us with medical records from the hospital that treated you.
Compensation for nursing negligence claims typically includes two types of damages – general and special damages. General damages cover pain and suffering, while special damages compensate for financial losses such as loss of earnings, extra medical expenses, and travel expenses.
When it comes to claims for nursing negligence, the average compensation payout depends on the severity of your injuries. The purpose of these payouts is to address the physical, emotional, and financial damages resulting from the negligence of healthcare professionals. Various factors, such as the extent of your injuries, the impact on your quality of life, required medical treatments, rehabilitation, and ongoing care needs, all influence the amount of compensation awarded. To ensure a fair assessment of your case and to seek appropriate compensation for the harm you have suffered, it is crucial to seek advice from a knowledgeable legal professional specializing in nursing negligence claims.
In general, you have three years from the date of the nursing negligence incident or the date you became aware of your injuries to make a claim. Children have until they turn 21 to make a claim, but a litigation friend can claim on their behalf if they lack mental capacity.
