St Albans Medical Negligence Solicitors

Before we explain the kinds of medical negligence that you can claim for, let us clarify what medical negligence is and how a medical negligence accident claim works. Medical negligence, alternatively known as clinical negligence, is when a patient has medical care that falls short of acceptable standards. This could take the form of an avoidable error, incorrect treatment or a misdiagnosis. If the patient becomes ill, injured or experiences the worsening of their existing medical condition because of medical negligence, then they may have a legitimate claim for medical negligence compensation.

If you have experienced medical negligence and have hired a solicitor to support a claim in response, they must establish the following:

  • Firstly, that a duty of care was owed to you (the claimant) by a healthcare provider (the defendant).
  • Secondly, that this duty was breached by negligent behaviour performed by the defendant.
  • Thirdly, that the medical negligence the claimant received from the defendant caused the claimant to suffer new injuries or illnesses or made an existing condition worse.
