Mistakes have been made that cost lives

Recommended Posts

Every time this is said on TV the legal profession must be rubbing their hands together.

Probably the most common one, is that someone died in a care home because someone else positive was sent there from hospital. It seems something that could reasonably proved given the small amount of people in a care home and when cases started in it. Surely a family of the deceased are going to chance their arm and sue the NHS about it? Then it swells to a class action? 

Employers could be done for not providing PPE, social distancing.  Public transport workers?

BAME families can use their apparent increased risk to add weight to their case?

The compo bill could be huge

Care homes allowed it. They're for the most part private entities.

I think it'll impact on the future of care immensely.

A lot of care homes will be going bust anyway so aren't worth suing. The NHS fired the bullet at the care home and they have the means to pay out.

They'll pass laws to stop it.

Class action is US only?

you can't sue the NHS, how very dare you!

 

No, UK as well now https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-34402483

Even billionaire Knights of the Realm aren't above make a few quid suing our beloved NHS

Payouts won't be high in terms of expected future life expectancy and income for family lost? But solicitors fees would be immense.

First thing they would have to do is prove the infection came from a hospital not else where

But if whats been reported is correct from my part of the world there are cases of transmission within the hospitals that could well see legal action

Putting people who were known to have tested positive on a recovery ward for day surgery

There is already £83bn in outstanding legal claims. The NHS keeps the legal profession in clover.

A lot of those people clapping might be doing it for their settlement!

In the last NHS accounts, 2018-19, the cost of harm bill — the estimated claims bill incurred in one year — was approximately £9 billion.

In 2017, it was calculated that a one per cent pay rise for NHS staff required £500 million in funding. The cost of harm therefore equates to an 18 per cent pay rise — an increase the British public would no doubt support for nurses, if everyone could just stop suing them. And this is the tip of a legal iceberg. The estimated bill for all outstanding compensation claims racked up over the years comes in at £83 billion. In comparison, NHS England's total budget in 2018-19 was £129 billion. In the maternity ward alone, for every baby born in Britain, £1,100 is incurred by the NHS in indemnity costs against negligence claims.

Cause of death on a death certificat will have a list of possible causes where the deceased has shuffled off due to age and being decrepit.

If CV is on the death cert it goes in the official scare number.

Proving it in law will be like proving which bean in the can made you fart.

Non story.

You obviously don't realise how much compo is already being paid out? :Jumping:

OK, they'll pass laws to stop it AND get a celebrity to endorse it!

PS: They currently seem to be busy chasing ISA providers for the investment mistakes of their clients.

There's going to be so much trouble downstream.

Eg, IMO we'll have a massive number of 'bad backs' (with time off work and early retirement on health grounds) apparently caused by home working without proper ergonomic assessment and appropriate equipment.

This will then make it difficult for companies to offer home working and directly lead to a return to commuting (and time lost, CO2 emitted, etc).  [This will then result in Greta crying because she'll have lost her chance of being fingered while downing Lambrusco.]

Can`t see the logic in that ,they don`t get paid once the resident is dead
