MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE

A Medical Negligence claim (also referred to as Clinical Negligence claim) describes the process by which a victim of medical malpractice can bring a legal action seeking compensation from a health care professional or body where it is determined that the healthcare providers actions (negligence) resulted in injury to the patient.

Similarly, you might have a claim where for medical negligence or clinical negligence where you have had a procedure that causes a pre-existing condition to get worse. Medical negligence can arise through misdiagnoses, incorrect treatment being given, late diagnosis and surgical mistakes

wHAT IS FAULT?

You may hear your Medical Negligence Lawyer talk about a ‘breach of duty’. This simply means that, for the type of treatment you received, your care fell below the standard expected of a reasonably competent and skillful specialist. In other words, they failed to treat or care for you in the way that a reasonable expert in that field should have done. In all Medical Negligence claims primary fault (liability) must be established

MEANING OF AVOIDABLE HARM

This is also called ‘Causation’. It means that you need to show that the negligent care (rather than the underlying condition) caused you harm. This may sound relatively easy, but it can be difficult, particularly if have a complex health history. By speaking to one of our Medical Negligence Lawyers, you will be giving yourself the best chance as proving Causation.
