How do medical negligence solicitors negotiate a settlement?
If your health solicitor has prepared your case well, there is a very good chance that the Defendant will admit liability and enter into settlement negotiations. The medical negligence solicitor handling your claim will be able to provide you with legal guidance during the entire process and secure the maximum compensation for your injuries.
The aim of compensation is very simple: to return you to the position you would have been in but for the medical mistake. Thus, the amount of compensation you receive will depend on the nature of your injury and the impact it has had on your health and wellbeing. You can expect to be recompensed for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of lifestyle (the way your life has changed post-injury, such as loss of ability to work or enjoy hobbies)
- Lost earnings and future earnings
- Treatment costs
- The cost of prosthetics, medical aids and other medical and personal equipment
- Travel costs
- Assistance with day-to-day activities and other personal care.
Receiving damages will not make you better but it will enable you to achieve reasonable financial protection against the consequences of your injury. Reputable medical negligence solicitors will work hard to achieve a fair and reasonable level of compensation so that you can pay for your medical care and have the resources to cope with any problems that arise in the future.
