How we can help you with making a medical negligence claim in Talbot Green
Starting a medical negligence compensation claim in Talbot Green

This means that we will only charge you legal fees in the case that we are able to secure you compensation.
Also, your costs may potentially be covered by the defendant, but this is dependent on your claim being successful and varies from case to case.
Proving medical neglect or negligence
In order to claim medical negligence compensation, it needs to be clearly proven that you have been failed by those caring for you and that the mistakes were avoidable.
To prove this, you will have to provide various evidence such as:
- Medical records such as risk assessments
- Examinations and testimonies from independent medical experts
- Witness testimonies
Our medical negligence solicitors in Talbot Green will carefully collect and compile all of the evidence that is required to build your case. We will then proceed to present it in a clear and concise manner, working alongside you to help you achieve the compensation that you deserve.
Valuing a medical negligence claim in Talbot Green
The compensation received after you make a successful medical negligence claim is obviously an important concern, and calculating the amount is often called ‘assessing quantum’ or ‘assessing quantum of damages’.
The compensation received for a medical negligence claim will cover various aspects, including:
- The cost of medical treatment, specialist care & equipment
- Any lost income from time off work
- Your general pain and suffering
- Travel costs and other expenses
- Loss of amenity i.e. not being able to carry out activities you/your loved one would otherwise have enjoyed
- Providing for your/your loved one’s future financial independence
Time limits for medical negligence claims in Talbot Green
Under normal circumstances, there is a strict three year window from the date the negligence occurred to make a medical negligence claim.
However, in certain cases, there are exceptions to this general rule. This includes where:
- You are a parent/guardian making a claim for a child who is yet to turn 18. You will have until they turn 18 to make a claim, at which point they will then have until their 21st birthday to make a claim themselves.
- You are claiming for someone who lacks mental capacity. There is no time limit for these types of claims.
- You are claiming for someone who has died due to medical negligence. You will have three years from the date of death.
Reaching out of court settlements for medical negligence in Talbot Green
Our medical negligence solicitors have a wide breadth of experience in negotiation and Alternative Dispute Resolution. Our first port of call will be to achieve a medical negligence settlement outside of court, as this allows you to access compensation more quickly and without the stress of going through the court process.
Taking a medical negligence claim to court
Unfortunately, going to court is sometimes unavoidable to achieve the right compensation. If this happens then we are able to provide representation as well as personal support, as well as building you the most robust case possible to achieve a successful outcome.
Managing medical negligence claim compensation
Once you have secured compensation, it’s crucial that you take a period of time to figure out how to manage the compensation so that your needs will be met.
Our clinical negligence solicitors also have experience advising how to use personal injury trusts to ‘ring-fence’ the compensation so that you aren’t blocked from claiming means-tested benefits.
