Hello I am a solicitor with over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this.
When did this happen? Has there been an inquest?
it happened 22nd august 2014 there was a postmortem
as i have no funds will i be entitled to legal aid
OK. I am not sure what outcome you are hoping for. It may well be that your husband was the victim of clinical negligence. You may well be able to claim compensation as a result of this. It may be that you want an acknowledgement from the hospital about what has happened and a credible assurance that this will not happen again. In either case you will probably need an expert solicitor, you can follow this link http://www.avma.org.uk/pages/find_a_solicitor.html to the website of the Association of the Victims of Medical Accidents and chossea local solicitor to help you.
thanks I have the records showing that the nurse overdosed and if I can get compensation all very well and good but the hospital should get rid of that nurse. If there is compensation how do i get it.
