Wrongful Death & Fatal Claims

When things don’t go right, we are here to get you the answers you deserve.

When a family member or loved one dies, it is heart-breaking for those left behind. For those who lose a loved one due to medical negligence, the experience is made only more distressing.

Throughout our lives, we all rely on doctors to treat us and look after our health and that of our families. During times of illness, we place trust in healthcare professionals to promptly diagnose and treat disease. Whilst it is not possible to save every patient, we trust that with proper treatment we will get better. Unfortunately however, this is not always the case and patients continue to die as a result of negligent medical treatment.

This loss is made only more traumatic when families are left with unanswered questions or suspect that more could have been done to treat their relative; making it difficult or impossible to find ways to move on.

In the event of the death of a loved one, surviving family members may be able to make a fatal medical negligence claim. Our specialist medical (clinical) negligence solicitors have the expertise to deal with these types of cases. We have represented many people and their families who have lost a loved one due to negligent medical care. When things don’t go right with medical treatment, we are here to help you get the answers you deserve and the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

Fatal Medical Negligence Compensation

A single instance of medical negligence can result in the death of a loved one who should have otherwise survived. We work with adults and family members whose loved ones have died due to medical negligence and errors in treatment. We also deal with cases involving babies or mothers whose fatal injury is due to medical negligence during pregnancy or childbirth. Some of the claims we can help with include those involving:

  • Childbirth and pregnancy
  • Failure to diagnose conditions
  • Failure to follow up conditions
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Medication mistakes or improper treatment
  • Surgical errors

Our sensitive and approachable team of medical negligence specialists understand how distressing and devastating cases of fatal medical negligence can be. We know that for families, having your voice heard and getting the answers you deserve is just as important as receiving financial compensation.

If you have been affected we will guide you through the compensation claims process, fighting for you to receive the compensation and answers you deserve.
