Making a Never Event Claim

Hospitals should be a safe place to ensure you are receiving the correct treatment.

If you have fallen victim to a Never Event during the course of your medical care then you could be entitled to compensation.

What is a Never Event?

Never Event cases are a form of medical negligence that should never have happened, causing serious injury to the patient.

Each type of Never Event has a caused the person harm or even death.

Never Events can include:

  • 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 a Never Event, you are likely to be able to claim for compensation as these circumstances are avoidable and you have suffered unnecessarily as a result of the healthcare provider’s negligence.

Can I claim compensation for my child?

You can act as a Litigation Friend for a child, if you are the parent or guardian.

Any compensation paid will go into a trust to be managed on behalf of the child until they turn 18 when they are legally able to manage their financial affairs.

Am I able to bring a claim for my loved one?
