How can we help? Let us call you.
Coming to terms with the loss of a loved one is particularly difficult if the family feel that their relative did not receive acceptable care from their treating doctors.
We have acted for many families where sadly the death of their loved one could have been prevented with appropriate and timely medical intervention. In particular, we have pursued cases against GPs for failing to refer patients to hospital with symptoms of heart attack or stroke. We have also pursued cases against hospitals for failing to provide emergency surgery to treat damaged internal organs and in cases of death following traumatic child birth.
Where someone loses a spouse or partner upon whom they were financially reliant, there are often serious financial implications to cope with in addition to the emotional turmoil. It is possible to recover damages for loss of dependency including dependency on income. Damages can never properly compensate for such a devastating loss, but can help to make provision for future needs.
The claims process is an especially emotional one in cases of this nature, and we are able to provide support and guidance throughout.
Following an unexpected death in hospital, it is common for the coroner to be involved and an inquest may be held to investigate the cause of death. This can be a daunting process for the family. We are able to offer help and guidance in relation to inquests.
