Why would a Claimant need to make a medical negligence claim against a Luton based medical service provider? Clinical negligence, also known as medical negligence is defined as a patient receiving substandard care from a medical professional and/or institution. This could include a medical mistake, incorrect treatment or a misdiagnosis, which results in the patient becoming ill, injured or experiencing the worsening of a medical condition. If you have experienced medical negligence which resulted in your becoming injured and ill, then you may be entitled to make a clinical negligence claim for compensation.
To make a clinical negligence claim, you (the Claimant) needs to be able to prove the following about the defendant:
1). That you were owed a duty of care by the Defendant (i.e. the duty of care owed in the patient-doctor relationship)
2). That the Defendant breached the duty of care by negligent actions
3). That this negligent action resulted in the Claimant suffering an avoidable accident, which caused you an injury or illness, or worsened an existing condition.
Can you claim medical negligence compensation on behalf of a relative, or can you only claim it for yourself? You can legally make a clinical negligence claim on behalf of your next of kin, if they are now deceased or are unable to act on their own behalf, due to being mentally incapacitated. In the UK, most clinical negligence claims made in the UK are subject to a three-year time limit, since the incident of clinical negligence occurred or the Claimant found out that they had been injured by it. Under certain circumstances, medical negligence claims for incidents from over 5 years can still be recognised.
