Healthcare Compensation Claims
Clinical Negligence Claim Solicitor
Compensation for Medical Negligence
Folgate Legal conduct Clinical Negligence claims if reasonable prospects of success can be established. In order to do so it is likely to be necessary to obtain medical records and seek an independent opinion by way of a “screening report” from an expert. If a Claimant can establish that no reasonably competent body of medical opinion would have provided the surgery, treatment or advice complained of there will be good prospects of success. This also extends to failures to perform diagnostic investigations.
A Claimant may also have a right of action for a failure to obtain what is known as informed consent prior to embarking upon a course of medical treatment.
Compensation claims may be brought against many different healthcare providers, NHS Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups and increasingly, private suppliers.

Thank you for your letter enclosing the cheque in settlement of my claim. I should like to thank you and your staff for all your help, advice and hard work in reaching this conclusion which you have made the least painful part of the whole episode.

Dear Marc, I have been extremely satisfied with the service that you provided. From my first telephone conversation with you to the last one, I had every confidence in your ability to fight my case successfully. (testimonial made for Marc Folgate at Scrivenger Seabrook)
J McVeigh – West Midlands
Dear Marc, many thanks for your cheque and an excellent outcome. Had the defence offered me half that amount at the beginning I would have taken it! You were very skilful; towards the end I thought we would go to court – and I would have gone. (testimonial made for Marc Folgate at Scrivenger Seabrook)
