Compensation for medical negligence


If you have been injured as a consequence of the negligence of a medical professional, such as a doctor, surgeon or specialist, you may be able to claim compensation.

The aim of compensation is to compensate you for your loss rather than to impose a punitive payment on the professional. Compensation will vary depending on the type of injury and your personal circumstances.

Calculating compensation can be very complex and not everything can be compensated. We have set out some of the basic principles about compensation here, such as what can be compensated and how compensation is calculated.
