Injuries made worse by hospital negligence

Injuries made worse by hospital negligence

In these cases, we are often asked if a second claim should be made. The general answer is no – if the first claim is good, there is no need to add the hospital as a new defendant. Only if there is gross negligence – really serious negligence – does the court say that the person who caused the accident is not liable after that negligence. The Claimant does not get extra damages for winning two claims.

The Claimant was represented by Tim Beasley, Head of Catastrophic Injury Department. Commenting on the case, Tim said “When we first heard from the Claimant, we were moved by his story and wanted to help. Even before we saw the evidence, we had a feeling we could achieve a positive outcome, whatever the previous solicitors might have thought, and the more we looked into the case, the more confident we became. This case illustrates just how important it is to speak to a specialist solicitor for complex work accident cases.”

Brain injury due to premature birth claims UK

Our work did not end once liability was established, in fact it was just beginning as the Claimant was recommended rehabilitative therapy before obtaining further expert evidence to comment on the impact of her brain injury on her future life and the support she would need to support her.
