Medical Negligence

medical negligence personal injury

Medical and dental professionals have a duty of care towards their patients. They are responsible for providing an acceptable level of care and as a patient you are entitled to expect reasonable standards. If for any reason this is not the case, healthcare professionals may have committed a breach of their duty of care. Clinical or medical negligence is a term we use to describe cases where there is a breakdown in the duty of care.

As well as caring for you, doctors and healthcare professionals should also make sure that you properly understand all the risks that might be involved in your treatment, including any surgery. This allows you to give informed consent for your treatment. If you are not given all the appropriate information, you may have a claim for clinical negligence which could include:

  • any delay in diagnosis resulting in increases your suffering or chances of recovery
  • improperly performed surgery
  • wrong treatment
  • medical device failure
  • drug reactions
  • childbirth problems where there might be a delay in response signs resulting in injury
