Mental Health is not a subject we all find easy to talk about and at Hill & Abbott we understand that raising concerns and issues about those you are trusting to care for you can be difficult. Anyone suffering from mental health issues has the right to receive care and treatment from medical professionals and your expectations are not that they may cause you more distress, or the worst case that you suffer additional injury, whether physical or psychological.
You have every right to claim mental illness compensation if you have suffered further as a result of poor or inadequate treatment. We recognise the sensitive nature of mental health claims and we understand the need for a caring a sensitive manner in which they need to be handled.
If you have suffered a mental health injury while being looked after by healthcare providers, you may be able to make a claim.
These could include:
- Mental health injuries and illnesses during hospital stays
- Negligence during mental health treatment
- Inadequate care by service providers
We can help you make a claim?
If you think you have suffered further at the hands of those tasked to care for you and who should be providing you with the right treatment or you have suffered from any other mental health injury then we may be able to help you. Our expert medical negligence solicitor will assess your potential claim with you and provide advice on any steps that need to be taken to make a claim for compensation.
Acting for a member of your family
In mental health cases, the individual who suffered the injury is not always in a position to bring a claim for compensation. We understand this and can discuss with you the possibility of making a claim for medical negligence with you on their behalf. We may also ask one of our Private Client team to speak with you to discuss Lasting Powers of Attorney with you in relation to health and welfare issues, or you may be interested in speaking with the team on behalf of someone else without the need for bringing a claim for personal injury.
