What Is A Clinical Negligence Claim?
Many clients frequently ask us, “what is a medical negligence claim?” A medical negligence claim is a claim for compensation, which takes place when an individual has been harmed by medical negligence, and the victim claims compensation from the third party that is responsible.
Before we begin, let’s define medical negligence. Medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence or medical malpractice is when a patient receives substandard care from a medical practitioner and the patient is harmed as a consequence. Legally, all medical practitioners such as doctors, nurses, psychiatrists and dentists have a duty of care towards their patients.
This means that they are obliged to give them the best possible standard of care, which takes the patient’s health and safety into regard. If the medical practitioner fails in their duty of care and this causes an avoidable accident, which in turn causes the patient to become injured, ill, or a medical condition worsens that the patient already suffers from then they can be held legally liable for any harm caused. In such circumstances, the patient could have the right to make a claim.
If a medical practitioner is found guilty of medical negligence, then the institution or organisation they work for may have to pay the patient compensation. In an extreme medical negligence case, the medical practitioner may also have their license revoked. Medical negligence claims can be NHS medical negligence claims or private healthcare medical negligence claims and can cover all types of negligence including hospital negligence cases across the UK, GP malpractice and dental negligence damages.
Claim Time Limits
Another question that often follows asking “What is a medical negligence claim?” is asking if there is a time limit for making a claim for an injury caused by clinical negligence. There is normally a three-year time limit on medical negligence claims, from the moment that the accident happened, or you realised you had been harmed (for example, if you experienced a complicated diagnosis).
If you experienced medical negligence which harmed you when you were a child, then you will have three years after your 18th birthday in which to claim. If you are sadly claiming compensation on behalf of a relative who died as a result of medical negligence, you will have three years since their death in which to claim.
If you believe you have experienced a medical negligence case, call Legal Expert today to enquire about making a No Win No Fee clinical negligence claim. If you have legitimate grounds to claim, we will help you to collect the compensation that you are entitled to.
How To Find A Specialist Solicitor To Represent Your Medical Negligence Case
If you wish to make an NHS medical negligence claim, or private healthcare medical negligence claim then it pays to research which medical negligence law firm to use. Different clinical negligence law firms may specialise or have varying levels of experience in handling different sorts of claims. It also pays to see if a firm’s previous clients were happy with the service they received by using reviews, by asking friends you know whether or not they would recommend their solicitor, or reading medical negligence solicitor reviews online.

Medical Negligence Cases Legal Expert Can Handle
Many of our clients wonder if Legal Expert only handles specific types of medical negligence cases. This is not the case. If your medical negligence incident caused you injuries, an illness, or worsened an existing medical condition to the extent that you had to take time off work, or it then you could be entitled to make a claim.
Common medical negligence claims that we handle include: hospital negligence cases UK, dental negligence damages, cancer negligence claims, birth negligence cases, nursing home negligence falls. We will now look at some more common medical negligence cases we regularly handle in more detail.
Cancer Negligence Claims
If you have experienced negligent cancer treatment, or the misdiagnosis of cancer then you could be entitled to make a cancer negligence claim for compensation. Unfortunately, cancer is a very serious life-threatening illness which worsens over time.
This means that if cancer is not caught and treated at an early stage, it can become more aggressive and become harder to treat. Unfortunately, if a doctor dismisses the signs of cancer, or misdiagnoses cancer as another illness, this will postpone treatment and worsen the cancer.
In some cases, this mistake can mean that the patient dies from cancer because it was diagnosed at too late a stage. In other cases, the cancer may be treatable but be more difficult to get rid of, forcing the patient to endure invasive treatment such as chemotherapy.
This is of course unacceptable. If your cancer was worsened, or sadly you lost a loved one because of negligent cancer treatment, making a cancer negligence claim will hold those responsible accountable for their negligence. Please call Legal Expert today to enquire about making a cancer negligence claim.
Birth Negligence Cases
If you or your child have experienced birth injuries, which were caused by negligence on the part of the midwife, doctor, nurse, or any other medical professional that gave you treatment during the pregnancy or birth, this could be a birth negligence case, which could potentially be worth a large amount in compensation.
Birth negligence can lead to birth injuries that can harm the mother or the child. Examples of injuries caused by birth negligence can be breaking or fracturing bones if the doctor or midwife uses the wrong tools during birth or hypoxia which can cause cerebral palsy if the medical staff fail to notice distress in the infant. If you or your child has been harmed by a birth negligence case, call Legal Expert to enquire about claiming compensation today.
