If you have suffered harm following a medical misdiagnosis, surgical treatment or hospital procedure, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering, losses and expenses. This is true regardless of whether the incident occurred within the NHS or while under the care of a private hospital or clinic; what matters is that the care which caused you harm fell below what would be considered to be a reasonable standard in the opinion of a similar healthcare provider.
Thompsons has helped many victims of substandard medical care successfully claim compensation. This includes claims for the following:
- Birth and obstetric injury claims
- MRSA claims
- Misdiagnosis claims
- Delayed treatment claims
- Anaesthetic injury claims
- Prescription error claims
- Hip replacement claims
- Breast implant claims
- Contaminated blood claims
- GP negligence claims
- Surgical error claims
- Prescription error claims

Sensitive to Clients, Robust with Defenders
Thompsons Solicitors is one of Scotland's largest firms. We only ever represent pursuers in personal injury cases. However, we are fully aware of the tactics commonly employed by insurance companies in attempting to defend medical claims.
As such, we have a robust and proven approach to dealing with defenders and insurers in order to achieve the best possible results for our clients. If you have suffered an injury or illness at the hands of a medical professional, we believe that you deserve no less and we will not be cowed by even the largest and most powerful of defenders.
How Long Does the Process Take?
Unfortunately, there is no general rule as to how long it takes to settle a medical claim. However, it is true that more complex cases generally take longer, particularly where they are further complicated by stubborn refusals of liability on the part of the defender.
One key skill of the medical claim solicitor is finding the right balance between resolving a case quickly and achieving a suitable and fair amount of compensation. Taking this approach, some cases can be proven and settled within only a few months. However, others may take much longer to conclude, particularly if they are contested in court.
Whatever the case, Thompsons medical claim solicitors in Glasgow are committed to keeping clients fully informed of their claim right throughout the process and will communicate to provide regular updates as and when needed. Making a medical claim can be stressful and we aim to lift the burden as much as possible.
