What is medical negligence?
Medical or clinical negligence are terms that are used to describe a series of events which lead to a patient under the care of a medical professional coming to some form of harm. Clinical negligence can cause both physical effects and also psychological effects.
Typical examples of medical negligence include:
- Failing to diagnose a serious medical condition or misdiagnosing it.
- Causing harm to a patient during an operation due to a surgical accident or error.
- Causing avoidable delays in administering critical treatment to a patient causing their condition to worsen.
- Allowing a patient to fall foul of some kind of accident due to inadequate supervision and care.
These are just some of the ways that medical negligence can occur, there are many more.
What is a clinical negligence claim?
A medical negligence claim is made when a patient can prove the liability of the medical professional and demonstrate the effects that the negligence had upon their health, mental condition and also tertiary considerations such as loss of earnings and loss of quality of life.
Every successful clinical negligence claim shares three key similarities, and these are:
- The medical professional who caused harm to the patient had a clear duty to care for the patient health.
- Failure to fulfil this duty to safeguard the patient’s health resulted in the medical professional causing harm to the patient.
- The failure in the duty to safeguards the patient’s health was avoidable.

Hospital Negligence Cases
Negligence can take place in a hospital for many reasons. From simply prescribing the patient to wrong medication or treatment to serious examples where a surgical error kills a patient on the operating table.
When it comes to claiming for hospital negligence cases UK residents can rest assured that Legal Expert has the experience and capability to take on major organisations such as the NHS.
Dental Negligence Damages
When a dental procedure goes wrong, the patient can be injured. Due to the nature of injuries to the face, jaw, and teeth, there can often be a cosmetic impact. When you claim dental negligence damages your solicitor will need to factor in not only the pain and suffering caused by the injury but also the psychological damage caused by living with a cosmetic injury even for a short time.
Legal Expert offers its national claims service to residents of Grays and the whole of the UK to make dental negligence claims.
GP or Doctor Negligence
With NHS medical negligence claims against a GP, it can be hard to prove liability. Your Doctor is the gatekeeper to the entire health system and is expected to make an initial diagnosis, and then refer you onwards if prescription medicines cannot treat you. When a mistake is made in diagnosis, and you are not referred to the proper specialist, then your medical condition can worsen.
Legal Expert can help to prove the liability of your GP by getting you an expert medical opinion of how the Doctor impacted your health in a negative way.
Cancer Negligence Claims
Cancer negligence can have serious, life-threatening consequences. When a patient with an advanced case of cancer requires immediate treatment in order to have the best chance of recovery, mistakes such as misdiagnosis leading to a delay in treatment can result in the death of the patient.
If you have lost a loved one due to cancer negligence, then contact Legal Expert today. Our cancer negligence claims team can help you claim the most compensation possible.
Nursing Home Negligence
When it comes to reasons to claim for nursing home negligence falls is one of the most common. Accidents such as a slip, trip or fall happen at a nursing home when the level of care is allowed to drop. Underfunding, overworked staff, insufficient training, these are all reasons why care in a nursing home can be of lower quality than legally required.
If you or a relative has suffered due to care or nursing home negligence the Legal Expert national claims service can help you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
Birth Negligence Cases
When birth negligence cases occur, the results are often tragic. The mother can receive injuries from minor perineal tears, through to damage to the pelvic floor muscles and even a broken pelvis. For the baby, the situation can be even more dire. Birth trauma can lead to problem bones, as well as cuts and abrasions which could leave permanent scarring. Most serious of all, the loss of oxygen during the birth could lead to brain damage and conditions such as cerebral palsy.
If your family is going through the traumatic time of dealing with childbirth negligence, then Legal Expert can help you begin a compensation claim without adding to the stress.
