Yearly Reported Medical And Clinical Negligence Cases

Annual trends show that Britons are making an increasing number of clinical negligence claims. Nonetheless, compensation payouts only represent a tiny fraction of the NHS’ budget, and therefore trying to reduce them to reduce budget deficits is of questionable efficacy. In 2010 to 2011, the NHS’ budget was approximately £104 billion, yet just £729.1 million was paid out to victims of clinical negligence, with a further £235 million going on legal costs.

Defendants either admit liability and come to an out-of-court settlement or deny liability and the case proceeds in court. However, some personal injury claims are more confusing and difficult. A team of compensation claim solicitors and other specialists have answered some frequently-asked […]

What Does The Future Hold For Whiplash Injury Claims?

Recently, the government announced it intends to cut down on bogus whiplash injury compensation claims, suggesting that this causes insurance premiums to rise. The Transport Committee and the Ministry of Justice recently held a consultation on this issue, saying that while genuine whiplash injury claims should still be able to go ahead, there are a number of “fraudulent and exaggerated” cases in the UK.
