Each day thousands of patients put their trust in a medical professional to cure or treat whatever medical issue they may be suffering from. In most cases, patients receive proper and effective treatment that results in various forms of relief for the patient. Other times however, it can result in painful, permanent, or even fatal outcomes – and while some negative outcomes to medical treatment are unavoidable, there are many cases where the medical professionals or facility involved have acted negligently. When this is the case, you or your family may be entitled to a medical negligence claim against the medical professional, clinic, or hospital, involved.
Filing a medical negligence claim can be a tedious, and complicated, process that involves a detailed review of both your past, and present medical records. These medical records will be what ultimately determine whether or not the medical professional or facility involved acted negligently. In order for your claim to be successful you and your solicitor in Abingdon will have to prove the following:
- Fault or Liability- This is proved by demonstrating that the medical professionals or facility involved in your treatment did not carry out their duties in the most professional and responsible manner possible
- Avoidable Harm or Causation- This is proved by demonstrating that the medical professionals or facility involved with your treatment, were negligent in their treatment, thus causing additional or more serious health issues as a result.
