Medical and legal advice
Contacting any medical organisation, from your local NHS Trust to the General Medical Council, can be a daunting prospect. Medical and legal advice can be obtained from qualified solicitors that can look at the complaint you want to make, or the claim for compensation you want to bring, and help and support you with detailed medical and legal advice.
The medical and legal worlds are complex as they contain many aspects of civil and criminal laws. Medical solicitors with legal training and expertise are specialist lawyers that understand the complexities of medical law. It is important to understand that most of the personal injury solicitors that offer their medical and legal advice are not qualified to handle your complaint or claim for clinical malpractice or negligence.
Under the law any medical and legal lawsuit that you want to bring against a healthcare worker must be upheld with evidence that shows that your injury was as a direct result of the healthcare worker’s action (e.g. they allegedly gave you the wrong drugs), or inaction (e.g. you did not receive the treatment you needed) and not simply an accident.
Medical and legal advice is also essential if you are making a complaint, or claim for compensation, for a relative. If your relative has died and you think this is because of clinical negligence or malpractice, medical advice from a legal perspective is absolutely essential before moving forward with your case. This medical and legal advice is even more important if your relative died in a hospital outside of the UK.
