When you know or suspect that something has gone wrong with medical care or treatment, knowing what to do or where to turn can be extremely daunting. You will have a plethora of questions. What went wrong and why? What are my rights? Can I complain? Can I see the records? Was this preventable? Is somebody going to apologise to me? Can I be compensated for my loss?
So, it’s not just the legal questions that require answers. Also, it’s important to remember that medical negligence doesn’t just affect the victim, but the whole family.
At BLB Solicitors our focus is therefore getting you all of the answers and all of the help you and your family need – emotional, practical, financial and legal – some clients have referred to it as our holistic approach.
First, it is essential that you understand exactly what is involved and how we can help you.
“Thank you David for everything. It’s so much appreciated by the whole family, not least by my Dad. He’s got such a good relationship now with the care team and the compensation means that can continue.” RD, January 2018
Always speak to an expert
Unlike most law firms, when you call you will speak direct to a specialist and highly experienced medical negligence solicitor. What you tell us will be in complete confidence and you will not be put under any pressure to instruct us. On the contrary, we want you to be happy and comfortable with us before you instruct us.
We will discuss your current situation, provide you with initial advice, outline a possible way forward and answer any questions that you have. At that point you will probably wish to have some time to consider what you have heard, which may then prompt some further questions to us.
We do not charge a fee for this consultation and, should you prefer, a home or hospital visit can be arranged.
“I would like to thank David and his team for their kindness, support and understanding over the last few months since my mother’s passing. Without your prompt action, thoroughness and sound advice I’m certain that we wouldn’t have seen such an early end to this matter.” JK, February 2018
If you have been affected by medical negligence, our Head of Department, David Gazzard, will be delighted to speak with you informally and in complete confidence. You may call him on 01793 615011 or email him at email@example.com
