Alex Watts :

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

Are you saying the hospital was negligent and if so how please?

Customer:

I DID NOT HAVE ANY INFECTION GOING INTO HOSPITAL I THINK IPICKED THE INFECTION UP IN THE THEATER YES I THINK THE HOSPITAL WERE NEGLIGENT

Alex Watts :

If the hospital were NEGLIGENT then yes you can sue for this.

Alex Watts :

You would need to see a Medical Negligence Solicitor.

Alex Watts :

They would need to instruct an expert as to your condition, how you picked up the infection and also the Hospital working practices.

Alex Watts :

If the report says they were negligent then you have a case.

Alex Watts :

You may or may not be entitled to legal aid, as the government cuts have changed whether it is available.

Alex Watts :

If not then a Solicitor may take it on a no win no fee basis.

Alex Watts :

If not you will have to pay private for the representation and to go to Court. If you win then you can claim your costs back from the other side.

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
