NHS care is typically very good, with the majority of people not having any problems. However, on occasion things do go wrong as a result of lack of judgment and incompetent care, and when this occurs people must take legal action and seek the compensation that they deserve.
Taking Legal Action
If you have been injured as a result of medical negligence, there is a very high chance that you will be able to take legal action and get compensation. Not only this but people can also take legal action for compensation if they’re the next of kin of someone who has passed away because of negligent medical treatment, or if they’re the next of kin of someone who is no able to take legal action themselves.
To take legal action against clinical negligence, you don’t have to use the NHS complaints procedure, but many people advise this as it allows for cases to have more depth. However, even if you are going through the NHS complaints procedure after the NHS being negligent, you should contact a specialist solicitor such as our medical negligence team here at Zen Law Solicitors as soon as possible.
