We assist you with all matters relating to road accidents, injuries. Get Information

we’ll offer you free, impartial advice about making a claim and other damages. In case you want to file a case, we can help you with preparatory works. If you decide you’re ready to file the case then we’ll offer free help/guide you in choosing the expert Lawyer who has right experience working with cases like yours.

If you’re happy to go ahead, your expert Lawyer will work on your behalf to prove that the care you received was below the legal “duty of care” standard. To do this they’ll typically look at three things:

Breach of duty

This involves proving that your doctor, or the medical professional who treated you, provided care that was below the standard of a competent doctor or professional in the same specialisation. This may also be referred to as “fault” because your healthcare provider failed in their duty to you.

Causation

This involves proving that your doctor, therapist or nurse caused your injuries by providing sub-standard care.

Damage

This is about proving your injury experience has caused physical, mental and financial damage to you. Your solicitor will also use this to help negotiate maximum compensation for you.
