Medical negligence can change lives, and the consequences are often far-reaching. If you’ve experienced substandard medical care as a result of failings at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust, you may wish to make a claim for compensation to help take control of your life again.

Depending on the injury that either you or your child has suffered, it may be that we are never able to return your life to how it was before. However our team will use their specialist knowledge to help you live your life to the full.

We have brought successful medical negligence claims against a number of hospital trusts for people living across England & Wales, of varying severity. However we have specific expertise in the area of birth injury, and particularly cerebral palsy.

When might I have a claim for medical negligence against Shrewsbury & Telford hospital?

You may have a claim for medical negligence if:

  • you have experienced medical care which was substandard, and has caused injury to you or your child;
  • a condition you already had has been made worse as a result of substandard treatment.

You have three years in which to bring a claim, from the alleged negligence taking place or from your knowledge that it has happened.

However, if bringing a claim for a child you have until their 21st birthday to make a claim. Furthermore, if you are claiming on behalf of an adult with mental difficulties there is no time limit.

Find out more about how we determine whether treatment has been negligent and all you need to know about making a claim in our comprehensive medical negligence guide here.

How much compensation might I receive for a claim against the trust?

How much you receive for a successful medical negligence claim depends on the particular injury you have suffered and your situation before the injury, so in order for us to advise further you will need to speak to us.

However, for more information on how compensation is calculated, take a look at our guide here.

How can I pay for a claim?

Depending on how you wish to fund a claim, there are a number of options. These include the possibility of ‘no win, no fee’ funding, which means that should your claim be unsuccessful there will be nothing for you to pay.

Find out more about how to fund a claim here.

How long will a claim take?

We will use all the expertise and knowledge at our disposal to bring your claim to a conclusion as fast as possible, however the length of time can vary depending on the complexity of your case and whether the defendant denies liability.
