Claims against the NHS
Some people are reluctant to bring a claim against medical professionals and the NHS, where others feel they are entitled to compensation for the injuries they have sustained. No matter what your circumstances, if we believe you have a strong claim, we will give you the information you need to decide whether you wish to pursue a claim for medical negligence compensation.
We can pursue claims on your behalf against both private hospitals and the NHS. NHS hospital negligence claims are made against the NHS trust responsible for the hospital where the negligent medical treatment occurred.
Alternatively, if you would just like to ensure that no other patient receives poor medical treatment and do not wish to pursue a claim for compensation, we can help you to draft a letter of complaint to the hospital. This is a free, no obligation service and we will guide you through every stage of the process.
What’s My Claim Worth have successfully recovered compensation from the NHS on many occasions for clients who have been injured as a result of medical negligence. For example, we recently recovered £2,500 for a client who sustained a needle injury whilst in hospital. The client was admitted to hospital for an unrelated incident and whilst getting up to use the bathroom in the night stepped on a sharp object which was later discovered to be a needle. Our client was extremely distressed and had to undergo numerous tests for HIV, Hepatitis B and C which caused him pain and suffering.
