Medical negligence is sadly far too common. Although we all put our trust in those medical staff who are trained and employed to provide us with healthcare, sometimes things do go wrong and serious and irreparable damage can be caused. Unfortunately, the situation in Weymouth is no different.
For example, recently one Weymouth woman had minor thumb surgery at Dorset County Hospital and experienced complications afterwards which were caused by wiring being left in her thumb following the operation. She needed another operation to remove the wire and had to undergo unnecessary further care. In court, she won her medical negligence case and was awarded compensation for the hospital’s error.
If your health has been damaged in some way by a negligent medical professional, you deserve a fair level of compensation. Whatever medical error gave rise to your claim, our team are specialists at recovering compensation for victims of medical negligence [often referred to as clinical negligence – it’s the same thing].
