- Accidents or mistakes during a surgical procedure.
- Failure to diagnose a medical condition soon enough, leading to critical delays in providing treatment.
- Misdiagnosis of a medical condition, leading to critical delays in providing treatment.
- Accidents caused by a patient receiving insufficient care and supervision.
- Prescribing the wrong medication.
These are the most common ways that clinical negligence happens. Every valid claim for clinical negligence damages has the following three common aspects:
1). The medical professional who caused the negligence has a responsibility to care for the health of the patient.
2). A failure to meet this responsibility directly caused harm to the patient.
3). The failure in meeting this responsibility was avoidable in some way.
