Why should I claim?
Medical negligence can have dramatic and even fatal consequences, which can leave you emotionally and physically distraught. Your life could be altered forever which will not only affect you and those around you, but will have serious implications for your finances too.
An injury sustained through negligence could leave you unable to work or needing significant time off work for further treatment. If your partner is the one who has been injured and is usually the breadwinner, your household will lose a substantial part of its income. A childís injuries could mean they will not be able to enter the workplace at all, and will have no means of supporting themselves in the future.
If your injuries have left you disabled, it is likely you will need to make serious adjustments to your home and lifestyle. You could require anything from walking aids to a complete home renovation.
Injuries caused by medical negligence can also cause serious emotional distress, on top of physical suffering. Victims of negligence have been affected by depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and withdrawal. If someone you loved has died as a result of negligence, you could also be suffering from grief and shock.
A claim for compensation will not reverse what has happened, but it can go a long way to ease your financial burden. At Bluebird Law we have a specialist team who will deal with your case with sensitivity and dedication to get the best result for you and your family.
