What is medical negligence? Medical negligence is an avoidable accident, which was caused by a medical professional or organisation acting negligently towards a patient. It can be a medical mistake, surgical mistake, misdiagnosis or administering incorrect treatment. If the accident causes an injury, illness or worsens an existing medical condition, and the victim is entitled to claim compensation. If you think the above applies to you, then you could be owed hundreds or even thousands of pounds in compensation. Trust the medical claims lawyers Legal expert partner with to handle your case for you and win you the compensation that you deserve.
To claim compensation for medical negligence, you must be able to prove three things. Firstly that the defendant owed you a duty of care (i.e. that you were their patient). Second of all that the defendant performed negligent actions that breached their duty of care and thirdly that this an avoidable accident was caused by this negligent action, which worsened an existing condition or caused you an injury or illness. The medical compensation lawyers we work with can help you collect the necessary information to prove that this was the case.
One more thing is that there is usually a 3-year time limit to claim compensation for medical negligence, from the moment you had your accident or realised that you had been affected by it. So if you are thinking about going down this route, we advise that you contact a specialist medical negligence solicitor as soon as possible to start making your claim.
