Mental Health Claims


Patients with mental health related issues are some of the most vulnerable in our society and those who have expressed suicidal thoughts or actions are particularly at risk, so it is vital that they are treated quickly and appropriately under an effective care plan.

The NHS has a legal duty, including as part of Human Rights legislation, to protect patients whose lives are at risk. Unfortunately, mistakes are sometimes made and the standard of care delivered by health professionals falls short.

An inappropriate care plan or a breakdown in communication between doctors, care workers and the patient can seriously jeopardise recovery, perhaps increasing the risk of an adverse event or tragedy happening.

We know that compensation can never make up for what has happened, but we recognise that bringing a mental health claim can have other benefits, such as obtaining answers about care that has been provided and brings into account those responsible.

Compensation can help pay for aftercare and rehabilitation costs or, in the case of a fatality, pay towards funeral expenses and compensate for the loss.
