There are many ways that medical negligence can happen in a hospital. A person might receive the wrong treatment, be prescribed the wrong medication, misdiagnosed or even injured during an operation. However, hospital negligence cases can be hard to pursue. A large organisation such as the NHS has plenty of legal punch, and the medical professional involved will not want a black mark on their reputation. Therefore, Legal Expert approaches hospital negligence cases expecting a challenge. We do everything we can to win your case for you.
The most common type of medical negligence which dental negligence lawyers will pursue compensation for involves some kind of accident or mistake during dental surgery. This could lead to a cosmetic injury to the face, jaw or teeth. This means that a compensation claim will need to include damages for the physical injury and also the mental harm caused by the trauma of living with a cosmetic injury for even a short time. Legal Expert is well experienced in claiming this kind of compensation and can help you win your case against a dentist.
GP or Doctor Negligence
We all like to think that we can trust our Doctor. The first person we see when we are feeling under the weather is our GP. When a GP makes a mistake, it can have serious consequences. Imagine what would happen if your GP diagnosed your stomach cramp, nausea and abdominal pain as an upset stomach, when in fact it is Crohn’s disease, a much more serious condition with similar symptoms?
Legal Expert can arrange for you to receive a local, impartial medical examination, and the results of this can be submitted as evidence in a GP negligence case.
Instances of Cancer Negligence
Patients with advanced cases of cancer require treatment quickly in order to have the greatest chance of surviving the illness. When a doctor makes a mistake and misdiagnoses the type of cancer the patient is suffering from, this can lead to a lethal delay in receiving the correct treatment and can be a reason to make cancer medical negligence claims.
If you have lost a loved one due to some form of cancer negligence, then we recommend you use the Legal Expert cancer medical negligence claims to get you the maximum amount of compensation possible.
Negligence in a Nursing Home
As a resident of a nursing or care home, you are supposed to be provided with a specific, legally defined level of care. Unfortunately, nursing homes are often understaffed, with employees lacking the training they need to deal with emergency situations. Nursing home negligence can be something as simple as allowing a resident to take a fall when they were supposed to be supervised and assisted. In more extreme cases of nursing home negligence, death can be the outcome.
If one of your elderly relatives has suffered harm due to negligence in a nursing home Legal Expert can help you claim compensation on their behalf.
Medical Negligence at Birth

The baby can suffer even more serious harm, such as broken bones due to birth trauma and permeant disabilities such as cerebral palsy due to brain damage during birth.
