    When you’ve been subjected to substandard medical care, you may wish to make a claim for compensation. At Royds Withy King, our London-based solicitors can help you get the compensation you deserve.

    Experts in medical negligence, here to help

    Our team of expert medical negligence solicitors strive to be ahead of the curve. This means that they work hard to anticipate your needs following your medical injury, whatever your situation, and get you the compensation you need.

    Sadly due to the nature of these claims it’s not always possible to restore life to how it was before the injury, but our team will use their experience to help you live life to the full.

    Whatever the nature of your claim, if you have experienced medical negligence then we can help you. We have successfully claimed compensation from various London hospital trusts, including London North West Healthcare NHS Trust, Barking Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals Trust and Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust.

    How do I know I have a claim?

    You will usually have a claim for medical negligence if treatment or care you have received has resulted in an injury, or that any condition you already had was made worse due to that treatment.

    A claim will normally have to be brought within three years of the allegedly negligent treatment, or your knowledge that the treatment was negligent. There are some exceptions, such as for children who have until their 21st birthday to bring a claim, or adults with mental difficulties who have no time limit.

    You can find out more about how we identify negligence and make a claim in our medical negligence guide.

    How much compensation might I receive?

    Compensation amounts depend largely on your particular situation, so we will need to gather information from you before we can accurately estimate this.

    You can find out more about how this is calculated here.

    How can a claim be paid for?

    There are a range of options for you to fund a claim, including the potential for no win, no fee funding (or a conditional fee agreement). Find out more about how to fund a claim here.

    How long will a claim take?

    This depends on a number of factors, for example if the person or organisation you are claiming against denies there was a fault.

    You can find out more about this here.
