If you would like to know where you stand on making a medical abuse claim then our team of expert lawyers are here to help.
We specialise in dealing with medical abuse claims nationwide and have recovered significant sums of compensation from hospitals and other medical institutions throughout England and Wales, in both the state and private sectors.
While patients should always feel safe when receiving medical treatment, they are not always fully safeguarded. This allows predatory individuals to take advantage of positions of trust, targeting those who are vulnerable.
Abuse can be highly traumatic and cause long lasting harm. We will investigate your case and make sure that you are fully compensated for the impact it has had on all aspects of your health and wellbeing.
In some instances medical abuse can result in a criminal investigation or professional disciplinary proceedings being taken against the perpetrator. However, although a criminal conviction or disciplinary action can be helpful to a compensation claim, it is not essential and you can still bring a claim even if no formal action has been taken against the abuser.
Many of our medical abuse successes have been featured on this website, including:
- Abuse by a care worker
- Compensation for an NHS patient
- £70,000 paid to patient who was abused in hospital
- Sexual abuse in hospital
Leading abuse lawyer Elizabeth Duncan has assisted with an investigation into the prevalence of sexual abuse in the NHS carried out by the prestigious medical publication, the British Medical Journal. The BMJ report revealed that over 35,000 cases of alleged abuse were recorded by NHS trusts in just five years, though the researchers believe the actual extent of the problem could be much higher due to poor record keeping and underreporting. You can read about Elizabeth’s involvement with the BMJ investigation here.
