Medical Negligence Claims

Advice and Assistance from Cohen Cramer

Medical Negligence Claims. If you are a serving member of the Armed Forces or Ex-Service Personnel and have suffered negligent medical treatment that has caused you injury then you may be entitled to compensation.

Medical or clinical negligence arises when a treating medical practitioner does not perform to a reasonable standard of care.  This can be a failure to treat or a failure to diagnose or a failure to obtain proper consent to a course of treatment.  Additionally, in the military arena, often rules and procedures are not followed by those in the chain of command which results in injury and financial losses and can even result in a permanent medical discharge.

At Cohen Cramer Solicitors we have many years’ experience of representing injured service personnel who have suffered injuries in a whole range of circumstances.  We will ensure that you receive appropriate treatment and rehabilitation to get you back to the position you would have been in had the negligence not occurred.  We always strive to achieve justice for our clients and the maximum compensation they deserve.

Time limits for medical negligence claims

Strict time limits apply to bringing claims.  You have 3 years to commence court proceedings from the date you knew or suspected your injury was due to somebody’s fault.  You should seek legal advice as soon as possible to establish if you have a claim.

If you feel that you have suffered negligently at the hands of your treating practitioners then please contact our specialist team who will deal with your enquiry in a caring and sensitive manner.

Your claim can be dealt with under a conditional fee agreement. This means that your claim is not successful then, subject to compliance with our terms and conditions, you will not have to pay for the work we have done on your behalf.
