How is medical negligence defined?
The definition of medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence standard care towards a patient, at the hands of a medical professional or institution. The patient may be entitled to claim medical negligence compensation if the clinical negligence incident causes them to become harmed, including an injury, transmitting an illness, or the worsening of an existing medical condition. Common examples of medical negligence include medical misdiagnosis, administering the wrong treatment, mistakes, or failing to act.
If you are going to make a successful medical negligence claim, you the claimant need to be able to prove the following about the defendant:
- That you were owed a binding duty of care as a patient, by the medical practitioner or institution which treated you.
- That the duty of care you were owed was breached by the Defendant’s negligent action or inactions towards you.
- Finally, you need evidence to prove that this act of medical negligence caused you harm.
Please read on to learn more about what to look out for if you decide you want to hire a solicitor to support your potential medical negligence claim. We’ll analyse key factors such as reviews given to solicitors and how much the location of a solicitor actually matters. This guide also explains how our own solicitors here at Legal Expert can potentially assist with a variety of different medical negligence claims.
Within this guide, we’ll also take a look at some interesting statistics on NHS claims made in Medway/Kent. We also discuss making a medical negligence claim on a No Win No Fee basis and how this approach can benefit you.

You can approach an available solicitor of your choosing and they can then decide whether to support your claim. They should decide based on the information and evidence currently available regarding your case. If your chosen solicitor agrees to support you, then you can sign an agreement with them and then they’ll guide you through the following steps of your claim.
Your chosen medical negligence solicitor will be responsible for gathering evidence in your favour when they represent your claim. Under UK medical negligence law you can also claim medical negligence compensation on behalf of your next of kin if they are a child, are mentally incapacitated or are now deceased.
Is there a medical negligence time limit to claim compensation? In Britain, there is usually a 3-year time limit on making a medical negligence claim for compensation, from the time that you were injured or found out that you had been injured in an incident of medical negligence. If your incident occurred more than 3 years ago, can you still claim? The answer may be yes as there are some exceptions to this rule. If you call Legal Expert, an advisor can help you.
