NHS compensation payouts.

Imperium Law win a £4,000 payout for a man whose broken foot was misdiagnosed.

There are two parts to any payout, and each part requires separate evidence in support of the claim.

Part 1 - pain and suffering.

To make a claim it is necessary to prove that a hospital error led to either - your injury or the worsening of an existing condition.

A medical expert will need to examine your medical records to :

  1. establish if you have suffered an injury due to clinical negligence.
  2. determine the extent of the damage.

A report will be produced detailing your injury and outlining your likely recovery or disability. Your injury report will then be used to determine your payout.

The amount to be awarded will be worked out by comparing your injury with similar cases in which the courts have awarded compensation for pain and suffering.

Part 2 – financial loss and expenses.

To discuss making a claim call Imperium Law on 0800 633 5730.

After suffering an injury caused by delayed treatment or a botched procedure, you may have incurred losses. 

For example if you have been unable to work you may have lost income.

If it can be proved you have suffered a financial loss directly linked to your injury, and a medical expert confirms this loss was reasonable given the extent of the damage, compensation will be paid.

The amount you are likely to receive will be calculated based on your individual circumstances.

What to do if you believe you have received sub-standard care.

  1. Request a written explanation of your treatment from the medical professional who treated you. Your compliant will then be investigated and you will be provided with a written explanation.

  2. If you are not happy with the response you are given, seek legal advice from a solicitor specialising in medical negligence.
