Oakwood’s expert work and public place injury solicitors in London helped Mrs A claim compensation following a serious accident in a hospital that left her with a severe shoulder injury.
Mrs A was already a patient in hospital when her unfortunate accident occurred. Mrs A was in recovery following an operation. The bed she was in collapsed and threw her onto the floor. As a result of this she sustained a shoulder injury that required surgery to fix it.
Mrs A was already suffering at the time of her accident as she had just undergone surgery. Then having a dislocated shoulder that required a further operation was a massive trauma. Oakwood Solicitors were pleased to be able to help Mrs A claim compensation and we hope it helped her to deal with the accident.
Everybody’s circumstances are different. There is no set amount of compensation for each type of accident in a public place. The amount of compensation you receive following your accident will depend on multiple factors the most common of which are:
? The nature and severity of the injuries you have suffered; you are more likely to get a higher rate of compensation for injuries such as broken bones and scarring than you are for bruising and soft tissue damage.
? The amount you earn; the more you earn the more you have lost out on. Therefore if you are in a higher paid job you will be entitled to higher rate of compensation to reimburse you for your loss of earnings.
? The amount of time you have spent rehabilitating; the longer you have had to have of work the more earnings you will have lost out on therefore compensation for loss of earnings will be higher. If you have had to spend a long time recovering from an accident and you have been suffering during that time you may get a higher rate of compensation for the prolonged period of suffering.

Medical professionals are required to provide the highest standards of care to their patients whether they are a general practitioner in a local medical practice a surgeon in a large hospital or a nurse in a private medical practise.
Occasionally due to the actions (or lack of actions) of a medical professional mistakes can happen and patients can suffer as a result. This is known as medical negligence. This type of injury can be sustained as a result of an unintentional mistake made by a medical professional or as a result of direct malice on the part of a medical professional. The majority of injuries are caused by unintentional mistakes.
All patients are entitled to a reasonable standard of care from their designated medical professional; if this standard is not met then the person or body in question may be in breach of their duty of care.
There is a time limit on making a claim for compensation; this time limit varies depending on the type of compensation claim you are pursuing and the nature of the accident you have had.
