You may have been aware that 10 – 16 May 2021 was Dying Matters Awareness Week. The purpose, to open up the conversation around dying, death and bereavement.

Led by Hospice UK, Dying Matters feel it is important for families to be able to discuss death, dying and bereavement and we need to be better at making sure the right plans are put in place to protect ourselves and our loved ones at the end of their life.

Some useful information has been given and personal stories shared of different family’s experiences of bereavement.

For us, this has been a welcome opportunity to reflect on the important issues surrounding end of life care and the difficulties faced by patients and their loved ones.

Currently we are actively investigating cases where bereaved families have been left questioning the standard of care given by treatment providers to their loved ones and if the death of a loved one could have been avoided.

These cases are often highly emotive, and it is very difficult for the families left behind.

At Davies and Partners, our specialist medical negligence team know how devastating medical errors can be and are fully committed to securing compensation for families faced with unexpected financial difficulties.

We understand how daunting it can seem to make a claim in such terrible circumstances, but we are here to make the whole process as simple and hassle-free as possible.

For information about what compensation your family could be entitled to, please see our recent article: What happens when someone dies as a result of medical treatment? Who can Claim?

‘Families are often looking for answers when something happens to a loved one in the care of a medical professional, particularly when there are questions about the medical care given. Our team can provide the very best representation, support and guidance throughout.’
