“Yes I would highly recommend. Beth Thompson got in touch with me straight away and was very efficient at answering initial queries. This therefore lead me to chose to go with Bridge McFarland. I then began working with Bethany Langley, again service was faultless, I don’t have one improvement. Bethany was professional, friendly and above all made it all seem so simple and did my mortgage so quick it was by far the quickest my family and close friends have ever known. I am now recommending Beth to my partner who is currently looking at buying in summer. Whilst people complain about buying a house because they have to chase their solicitor this was certainly not the case for me, not once was I waiting around for Beth as I had constant updates, I thoroughly enjoyed working with Beth. ”

FAQs
Can I make a medical negligence claim on behalf of my child?
Yes. Only, if you are the mother, father or parental guardian.
Can I make a medical negligence claim on behalf of someone who has died?
Yes, if you are the spouse of the deceased, executor of the estate or legally defined next of kin.
Can my doctor/hospital stop treating me if I bring a claim against them?
It is entirely at the discretion of you and your treating clinician. Should you or your treating clinician consider that your doctor-patient relationship has broken down that treating clinician may consider that they can no longer treat you in a professional manner. However, if you have a complaint against your treating clinician it may not be wise to continue treatment from them in any event.
Do I have to visit my GP?
In the course of your claim, we may need to obtain your medical records from your General Practitioner and any hospitals attended. It is helpful if you have visited your GP as your attendance will then be mentioned within your records.
If I am at high risk of developing a pressure sore what should nursing staff be doing to prevent it?
There are a number of measures that can and should be put in place depending on the level of risk. There are special types of pressure relieving mattresses and cushions that can be given to patients, as well as heel protectors and special boots. Patients should be helped to turn and take pressure off vulnerable areas of their body. Nursing staff should also inspect a patients skin regularly so that they can act quickly at the first signs that a pressure sore may be developing.
My claim was settled without obtaining any medical evidence, is there anything I can do?
An important part of a solicitor’s role is ensuring that you receive adequate compensation for your injuries. If your injuries are clinical related and have not been adequately assessed by a medical professional then it may be that your solicitor has been negligent in reaching a settlement without carrying out the necessary investigations. Consequently, it is possible that any settlement you receive is an undervaluation of your claim. If you believe that your clinical negligence claim has not been adequately investigated, or settlement has been reached without independent expert medical opinion please get in touch.
