Help with Clinical and Medical Negligence
When we undergo a medical procedure or treatment we trust that the professionals looking after us will care for us properly.
When situations of medical or clinical negligence occur, we can find ourselves left suffering from negative consequences, sometimes with additional health issues, and seeking answers.
Jarmans Solictors has a proven history of working on a variety of medical malpractice claims and can work on a no-win no-fee basis.
With any medical negligence claim you must be able to prove that the health care professional in charge of your care failed to adequately carry out their responsibilities and that this is caused you to suffer avoidable harm. Our team will empathetically guide you through the process, advising you on the evidence that you need to prepare your case.
Examples of medical or clinical negligence include (but aren’t limited to):
• Retained foreign bodies following surgery (medical instruments)
• Undergoing an unnecessary/wrong operation
• Infection from poor hygiene
• Too much/too little anaesthetic administered
• Nerve damage or organ injury
In all cases you must be able to evidence that there was a breach of duty (that the professional failed to treat you in the way that you should have been) and that you suffered avoidable harm (that negligent care and not your existing medical condition caused you harm). The second point can be difficult to prove if you are already suffering symptoms from an existing illness.
In order to improve the chances of success in receiving compensation you will need to gather evidence of the impact that the malpractice has had on you. This means that you will need to obtain full copies of your medical records, detailed statements, and expert opinions.
If you feel that you have been the victim of clinical negligence it is important that you begin your claim quickly. You must claim within 3 years of the date of the injury or the date that you discovered that your injury/illness was the result of medical negligence. Parents and guardians can make a claim on behalf of children any time before they reach 18. Once a child turns 18, they can then make a claim on their own behalf until they reach 21. In cases where the claimant does not have the mental capacity to claim on their own behalf, there are no time limits to when a claim can be made for them.
If you believe that you or someone you care for has suffered from medical malpractice, make an appointment with our team of solicitors to discuss how we can help you get the compensation you deserve.

From the moment I instructed Jarmans Solicitors I felt confident this would be a quick and seemless purchase, unlike my previous Solicitors! Sonia Thrower in particular was amazing at keeping me updated throughout.
We have just successfully purchased our first home with the help from Sonia Thrower at Jarmans. We are very impressed with the service that we received, at first we were quite worried as the person that was given our case had left and Sonia took over at very early stages. With our purchase it was very different to normal as we also had land attached to our property where it started to get a little confusing with title numbers etc
Jarmans Solicitors are friendly, welcoming and very Professional. Great attention to detail, wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Thank you to Julia for all your help.
