MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE CLAIMS – INSTRUCT A SPECIALIST
Sadly, some generalist or even personal injury solicitors overstate their ability to really understand medical negligence claims – and as a result their clients have a greater chance of either losing claims they should have won or failing to be awarded the full compensation award they were entitled to.
Medical negligence work is amongst the most difficult areas of law and requires a specialist solicitor. Why? A detailed understanding of not only law and procedure, but also medicine, is required in order to construct a solid case from the X-rays, test results, and medical notes which need to be analysed.
ACCREDITED SPECIALISTS AND HOW YOU CAN IDENTIFY THEM
Many people simply assume that a solicitor is a specialist because they do that type of work, or because they say so.
Fortunately, when it comes to your medical negligence claim, there is a simple way of checking whether or not your solicitor is a genuine expert or not. Just make sure whether or not they are members of one of the two leading specialist medical negligence [or clinical negligence – it’s the same thing] panels which are run by;
1. Action against Medical Accidents [AvMA] – the highly regarded the campaigning patient justice charity
2. the Law Society – Clinical Negligence panels.
Out of over 100,000 solicitors nationwide, only a few hundred are on either of these highly regarded panels – we have members of both.
The other indication of whether or not your solicitor is an expert or not, is if their firm has been awarded the prestigious Specialist Quality Mark for Medical Negligence by Legal Services Commission – which is restricted to just 120 law firms out of around 11,000 nationwide. Our firm has this Quality Mark – so you know that our recognised expertise makes us the sensible choice for your medical negligence claim.
