Medical Negligence

Everybody in Health Services has a duty of care to the patients they diagnose and treat. The duty of care applies to Doctors, Nurses, Consultants and Surgeons etc. Simply it covers everyone that works in the Health Services. When that duty of care fails then we have Medical Negligence. You as a patient have the right to complain if you think that the standard of care is defective and that Medical Negligence has been committed. Some examples of clinical negligence for which you may be entitled to compensation include:

  • Undiagnosed injury or illness
  • Misdiagnosed injury or illness
  • Administration of the wrong medication or the wrong dosage
  • Mistakes during surgery
  • Mistakes during childbirth
  • Defective medical products
  • Care Home claim

Victims of clinical negligence may be entitled to compensation not only for the injury itself, but also for ongoing pain and suffering and for financial expenses such as the following:

  • Corrective medical treatment
  • Rehabilitative services
  • Pain, distress or loss of faculty
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Support of dependents such as minors
