Hospitals should be a safe place and ensure you receive the correct treatment. If during the course of your medical care you have fallen victim to a Never Event, then you could be entitled to compensation.

Never Event claims are cases of medical negligence which cause serious injury to you and that should simply never have happened. 

What is a Never Event?

Never Events are patient safety failures that could have been prevented and should have never occurred in the first instance, as they could have been avoided. Each type of Never Event has a caused the person harm or even death. 

The types of Never Events are:

  • Wrong site surgery
  • Placement of the wrong implant

  • Amputation of the wrong limb

  • Administration of medication by the wrong route

What does this mean for me?

If you have been a victim of Never Event, you may be entitled to claim compensation as these circumstances are avoidable and you have suffered unnecessarily as a result of the healthcare provider’s medical negligence.
