HELPLINE: ☎ 0344 414 0019

Most patients who are treated at Guys Hospital are satisfied that they have received the best possible care however there are times when things do go wrong and some patients are injured as a result of medical negligence. If you have been treated by Guys Hospital and have been less than satisfied with the result a medical negligence solicitor may be able to claim compensation if it can be shown that the hospital failed to exercise reasonable skill and care.

Negligent Treatment?

The fact that a particular treatment fails does not necessarily indicate that Guys Hospital have been negligent. If the treatment was administered properly and was supported by a substantial body of the medical profession then the failure of the treatment is not an indicator of the existence of medical negligence. To succeed in legal action against Guys Hospital a medical negligence solicitor needs to prove that either the treatment was inappropriate, was illogical or was administered negligently with inadequate skill and care.

Time Limits

There are time limits in all personal injury claims including applications to the court for medical negligence compensation. The basic time limit is three years from the date that the injury was discovered (with reasonable diligence) however this period is subject to exceptions principally for the mentally handicapped and those under the age of 18 years. Qualified legal advice from a medical negligence solicitor is imperative in regards to limitation and time limits.
