What qualifies as medical negligence?
Medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence) occurs when a doctor or health care professional does not provide the level of care to a patient that is expected and this results in physical or mental damage to the patient. In this case, the health care professional failed to provide the level of care that a qualified provider with the same skill-set would have provided under similar circumstances.
In most cases the outcome of treatment by your medical practitioner will have left you in a worse condition than when the treatment began.
How do I make a claim for medical negligence?
Start by making an enquiry with a medical negligence solicitor. We’ll review your case and let you know if you have a good chance of claiming compensation. You should be able to make a claim if you can prove you have suffered as a result of any medical advice or procedures.
Your solicitor will tell you if you have a claim and write to the practitioner or party that you are making a claim against, on your behalf.
What would a patient have to prove to claim negligence?
You’ll need to prove that the medical practitioner breached their duty of care when treating you or providing advice. This means you have come away from treatment in a worse condition that when it began and could include; physical injury, financial loss or mental stress. It needs to be proved that these issues resulted from the medical negligence and not other factors such as pre-existing medical conditions.
