Private Hospital Claims

Private Hospital Claims

 

Duncan Lewis Clinical Negligence Solicitors – No win no fee Private Hospital Claims

 

Patients with private healthcare policies expect the best healthcare – whether private hospital treatment is self-funded or funded by an employer.

 

However, private hospitals still make making errors and mistakes in diagnosis, patient care, treatment and surgery – and when this happens, patients can be devastated and not know where to turn for help.

 

Matters can become even more complicated if an NHS patient suffers negligent medical care from a private company contracted to provide NHS services, including diagnostic tests, health checks and NHS surgery in a private hospital.

 

Duncan Lewis clinical negligence solicitors can advise patients who have suffered injury as a result of private hospital treatment on how to make a no win no fee compensation claim – including claims relating to:

 

  • Anaesthetic errors and mistakes in private hospitals
  • Delays in referral by a private healthcare provider
  • Falls in private hospitals as a result of negligent patient care
  • Hospital-acquired infections or wound infections in private hospitals
  • Maternity care errors and birth injuries in private hospitals
  • Patient consent issues in private healthcare
  • Poor or negligent patient care in private hospitals
  • Private diagnostic testing errors and negligence
  • Surgery errors and mistakes in private hospitals.

Private hospitals may belong to a larger group of companies – making it difficult for patients to know who to complain to. However, Duncan Lewis clinical negligence solicitors can advise on cases of medical negligence in private hospitals – and discover who is liable for any injury resulting from private healthcare.
