If I have a case about deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

Establishing whether you have a case for making a DVT compensation claim requires exactly the same effort and evidence as any other claim for clinical negligence. Access Legal’s expert lawyers need to show that there was a breach of the duty owed to you by the responsible healthcare staff in failing to test for DVT, failure to diagnose the condition or misinterpreting and delaying a diagnosis or failing to follow established guidelines.

The onus will be on Access Legal to prove that 'on the balance of probability' (i.e. greater than 50% likelihood) it was those failures that were directly responsible for the injuries and actual physical harm you suffered.

There are time limits (usually three years) within which you can claim so whatever your circumstances you should contact Access Legal as soon as is practicable. We can then give you free initial advice about whether a claim is possible and establish what additional treatments you may require to help you deal with the future, whatever your prognosis.

The value of your compensation claim will depend on the nature and severity of your injury, whether you recover fully or if there is long term effect on your health, but be aware that these can be complex, lengthy and demanding cases. The first thing to do is to contact an expert law firm like Access Legal which specialises in this sort of work and can advise you if you have a case that is likely to succeed.
