If you’ve been the victim of medical negligence at the hands of a care professional, it can be extremely distressing and even leave you with life-changing injuries. Patients living in Newbury may have been treated locally at the West Berkshire Community Hospital or through another of the hospitals and units run by the Donnington Hospital Trust, and if they’ve received negligent treatment they could be entitled to compensation.
If you live in Newbury and you have suffered at the hands of a negligent medical professional, it’s really important that you get in touch with a specialist medical negligence solicitor if you are thinking of making a compensation claim.
However, unfortunately there are no specialist and accredited medical negligence solicitors currently in practice in Newbury itself. The good news is that the specialists at Bonallack & Bishop can help victims of medical negligence in Newbury.
DO I NEED TO INSTRUCT A SPECIALIST MEDICAL SOLICITOR?
We think so – and so do leading patient justice charity AvMA [ Action against Medical Accidents]. To quote from their website
” Clinical negligence is a highly complex and specialist area of law. It requires medical as well as legal knowledge…..In our opinion, specialist solicitors are much more likely to make an informed assessment of the chances of success in claiming compensation for clinical negligence……. Unfortunately many claimants have been badly let down by solicitors taking on clinical negligence cases which they are not competent to handle.”
Solicitors conducting medical negligence claims need to have knowledge of both law and medicine. Non-specialist solicitors often lack the required expertise and as a result their clients could lose out.
ACCREDITED MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE CLAIMS EXPERTS
‘How will I know whether or not a solicitor specialises in medical negligence?’ you may ask. It is actually quite simple.
Specialist solicitors should hold either the LSC Specialist Quality Mark for Clinical Negligence or be members of either of the leading medical negligence solicitors panels run by AvMA and the Law Society.
Not only do we have members of both these panels, but we are one of just 120 law firms nationwide [out of almost 11,000] to have gained that Quality Mark.
You will not find any solicitors in Newbury with any of these medical negligence accreditations.
