Pulmonary Embolism Claims

If I have a case about pulmonary embolism

Establishing whether you have a case for making a compensation claim for a pulmonary embolism requires the same investigation as any other claim for clinical negligence. To succeed in a claim we need to show that there was a breach of the duty owed to you by the responsible clinician in for example not anti-coagulating after surgery; failing to test for DVT; failing to diagnose the condition misinterpreting tests and delaying a diagnosis or failing to follow established guidelines.

The onus will be on you with the experience and skills of our expert lawyers at Access Legal to prove on the balance of probability, (i.e. that there is a greater than 50% chance) that it was those failures that were directly responsible for the injuries and 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 possible. We can then give you free initial advice about whether a claim can be made.

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. 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.
