Medical Negligence Compensation For Dependants (Spouse/Children)
Specific compensation for dependents can often be distributed so as to cater for long term difficulties and impairment of life.
For example, if a parent or spouse had symtoms of cancer but was misdiagnosed but by the time the correct diagnosis was reached the clients treatment was rendered ineffective, then dependents under the age of 18 could find compensation particular to their circumstances as invaluable.
If the spouse was or may have become a financial contributor to the household then the spouse could also be entitled to compensation, as per ‘special damage’.
The same would apply to any other type of medical negligence that has caused a serious injury or the loss of a parent, where the parent or spouse is unable to work or provide for the family.
Alternatively, such a pay-out could be made for psychological distress to children or spouse where a parent or partner has passed away because of misdiagnosis, failed medical care or medical negligence.
