If you received negligent medical care from a paramedic or your treatment was delayed as a result of an ambulance arriving late, you could be entitled to compensation.
As well being compensated for your pain and suffering, the injuries you sustained may have also caused you financial difficulty (i.e. through loss of earnings) or unnecessary costs which you have a legal right to be compensated for.
In order to make a compensation claim for an ambulance delay or negligent care or treatment by a paramedic, you will need to show:
- The treatment you received fell below acceptable medical standards i.e. medical negligence took place.
- The substandard treatment led to a worse outcome to your health than would have been achieved if you had received appropriate and timely care and treatment.
