The UK has one of the world’s best healthcare systems with internationally recognised standards. As such, most patients who are treated by either NHS or private healthcare services, whether in a hospital, dental surgery or doctors, they will be treated extremely well. Most patients won’t have any problems and will receive the highest quality of healthcare. However, for some patients things will go wrong and through error or direct negligence, patients might be injured or find their illness getting worse. In this guide, we will look at some of the most common circumstances for using a solicitor to claim compensation after being hurt by a medical practitioner.
Clinical & medical negligence claims can be caused by the negligence of a healthcare provider. Patients may then suffer injuries due to this. Causes may include;
- Failures to correctly diagnose medical conditions or wrongly diagnosing a condition. This may also include the failure to diagnose a condition quickly enough.
- Errors when carrying out a procedure, operation or the dispensing of medication.
- Errors in the prescription of treatment, medications or therapy.
- Medical practitioners not getting informed consent from a patient, or not fully warning a patient about any risks of being treated or not treated.
Patients who are looking to bring a medical negligence compensation claim will need to show that the treatment they received was carried out in a negligent way, or that it had significant negative effects on the claimant. Patients can also claim using a medical claims lawyer if the level of care they received was below standard.
