Medical negligence (also referred to as clinical negligence, medical neglect or clinical malpractice) is when a patient receives substandard care from a medical practitioner, such as a doctor or a nurse. All medical practitioners have a duty of care towards those they treat, so if the patient is harmed as a result of medical negligence, the patient could be entitled to receive compensation for their injuries.
To make a medical negligence claim, you may want to find a solicitor to handle your claim although this is not compulsory. We recommend you prioritise finding a solicitor that has a good track record of winning claims and has experience which is relevant to your claim. You may also wish to look at which payment options they provide. For example, would you get the opportunity to make a no win no fee claim?
If you look on the website of a medical negligence solicitor in King’s Lynn, you may be able to find testimonials from previous clients. Although these can be helpful, the firm is in control of what content is uploaded to their site, so these testimonials may not accurately represent the full range of opinions previous clients have about the firm. Instead, we recommend that you take some time to read independent medical negligence solicitor reviews, online, to gain a fuller picture. To find medical negligence solicitor reviews, go to a search engine such as Google or Bing and type relevant search terms such as “medical negligence solicitors in King’s Lynn” and “medical negligence solicitors in my area”. Reading a range of online medical negligence solicitor reviews should help you gain an impression of whether or not a firm’s previous clients were happy with the service that they received and if they are the right choice for you.
“Should I use solicitors in my area?”, is a common question that people may sometimes ask us. It’s a common misconception that if you are a King’s Lynn resident, you have to use a firm that is based in King’s Lynn or Norfolk to handle your clinical negligence compensation claim. You can actually work with a solicitor based anywhere in the country, to make a claim for medical negligence in King’s Lynn. This is because these days, it’s normal for a medical negligence lawyer to initially consult with their clients over the phone, or via email, and keep them up to date with important developments that have taken place in their compensation claim in a similar way. Instead of prioritising finding “solicitors in my area” to handle your claim, we recommend that you look for qualities such as whether the solicitor has relevant experience of handling claims like yours and whether or not they offer services such as a no win no fee payment option.
Remember, if you have been injured, made ill or had your medical condition worsened because of King’s Lynn hospital negligence, GP negligence, dental negligence in King’s Lynn or any other type of negligence, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Trust Medical Negligence Assist to provide you with a medical negligence solicitor with the right skills and expertise to handle your claim.

Unfortunately, cancer is time-bound, meaning that it spreads over time, making it more difficult to treat. It can also spread to other organs, if not caught early. Therefore, the sooner the cancer is caught, the more straightforward the treatment will be, and the greater the patient’s chances of survival. It can be beyond devastating to have a doctor dismiss or fail to spot the signs of cancer, which can lead to the diagnosis being delayed. In some instances, a doctor failing to spot the signs of cancer early on can lead to the patient not surviving the disease.

We also rely on GPs to refer us to a specialist for diagnosis and possible further treatment, if we are showing the signs of a serious illness or medical condition.

Examples of GP negligence include; a GP prescribing the wrong medication, a GP negligently misdiagnosing a patient or a GP negligently failing to spot the early signs of a serious illness such as cancer, which can have fatal consequences.
