We could define the meaning of medical or clinical negligence to be a situation where a medical professional responsible for the health of a patient, has caused them harm due to error, oversight of lack of care. Medical negligence cases range in severity from fairly minor such as a person being given the wrong medication, to extremely serious, such as mistakes made during a surgical procedure resulting in the death of the patient. For every case of medical negligence, the following three facts must be true to make a compensation claim:
- The medical professional who caused the situation will have had a clear duty to safeguard the health of the patient.
- The medical professional will have failed to meet this duty of care in a way that had a negative impact on the health of the patient.
- The failure to meet the duty was avoidable in some way.
