Medical negligence can cause the worsening of an existing medical condition or the development of new ones. It can also cause physical injuries and psychological damage. Every successful claim for compensation following negligence has the following three common aspects:
1). The person who caused harm to a patient in some way was actually responsible for caring for their health.
2). Failing to meet the responsibility of caring for the patient’s health directly resulted in harm being caused.
3). The failure to meet the responsibility of caring for the patient’s health was entirely avoidable.
Medical negligence can be due to many things, and happens in many ways, the most common being:
- Allowing a patient to come to harm by not providing enough care and supervision.
- Erroneously prescribed drugs and medication.
- Errors and accidents whilst operating on a patient.
- Badly administered treatment.
- Causing avoidable delays in providing critically needed treatment.
Although there are more ways that clinical negligence can happen, these are the basic causes. Legal Expert has a 30-year track history of winning substantial compensation awards in these types of scenarios.

When clinical negligence happens during the birthing process it can cause serious injury to the mother and tragic injuries to the baby. The mother could be the victim of mild injuries such as cuts and bruises, all the way up to a broken pelvis. When it comes to the baby and medical negligence birth trauma is the single most common cause of harm to a newborn. Birth trauma is a term used to describe any physical damage to the baby whilst it is being drawn out of the mother using implements such as forceps. Birth trauma can cause cuts and bruises, which may lead to permanent scarring. It also frequently leads to broken bones, with the collarbone being the most commonly fractured bone in the baby through birth trauma.

Making Medical Negligence Claims Against a GP
As your GP is the first person you go to when are sick, if they make a mistake, it can have serious consequences for your health. For example, let’s say you go to the doctor with stomach cramps, nausea and a fever. Your GP diagnosis you with an upset stomach. But what happens if you are actually suffering from Chron’s disease? A much more serious condition with the same symptoms.
Legal Expert can help residents of Chatham to claim compensation for GP negligence by arranging for a local medical examination and expert opinion.
Making Medical Negligence Claims Against a Care Home
There are two main reasons why residents often claim compensation for care home negligence. Firstly, when care levels drop, leaving the residents unsupervised, they can come to harm through accidents such as slips, trips or fall. Secondly, when care staff are overworked, they can overlook a resident’s health taking a negative turn.
If you have a family member who is a resident in a care home, and you believe they have been harmed through negligence, Legal Expert can help you to make a compensation claim on their behalf.
Making Medical Negligence Claims Against a Dentist
When your dentist makes a mistake, or there is some kind of surgical accident during a dental procedure, it is very common for the damage to the teeth, gums or face to result in cuts, bruises and potentially long-term or even permanent scarring.
The dental negligence team that Legal Expert operates for the Chatham area, understands that when claiming for dental negligence they will often need to claim not only for the pain and suffering of the initial injury but also the psychological damage of living with a disfigurement.
Making Medical Negligence Claims Against a Hospital
A hospital negligence definition could be that hospital any time one of the medical team at the hospital causes harm to a patient through oversight, error or accident, then a valid claim will exist. This negligence can occur in general treatment, or during a surgical procedure. When it comes to medical negligence hip replacement surgery in elderly people is a common scenario where a simple mistake can harm an elderly person severely.
