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?
