What Is Clinical Or Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence, clinical negligence, and medical malpractice are terms used to describe a medical professional failing to provide a patient with the correct standard of care. As a result, the patient may have experienced sustainable or further harm.

Some of the types of negligence that could occur in a medical setting include might include:

  • Medical misdiagnosis of a condition: A doctor may have failed to correctly diagnose you with a chest infection despite you presenting clear symptoms. As a result, you may have received delayed treatment for your original condition causing you to develop pneumonia.
  • Providing the incorrect course of treatment: A doctor may have failed to correctly diagnose your fractured wrist despite the obvious symptoms you exhibited. As a result, the doctor may have prescribed treatment to heal a sprain, delaying your original condition from healing correctly.
  • Surgical error: A cosmetic surgeon performing a tummy tuck may have failed to follow the correct post-operative protocols. As a result, the patient may have developed an infection that could have otherwise been avoided.
  • Failure to inform a patient of risks: A surgeon may have been reasonably required to make their patient aware of the risk of blood clots before surgery. The patient may have then experienced blood clots after undergoing surgery, causing them further harm. In these instances, the patient may not have consented to the surgery if they had known about the risks.

Medical negligence could impact both a patient’s physical and mental health. For that reason, you may be able to seek compensation for any physical and psychological harm you experience.

An experienced team of medical negligence solicitors for the Sutton-in-Ashfield area could help you build a strong case. For more information, see the section below.

How Could A Clinical Negligence Solicitor Help You Seek Compensation?

A solicitor who deals with medical negligence claims could help you gather the evidence you need to support your claim.

For instance, they could help you obtain relevant medical evidence to determine whether you received the minimum standard of care, such as:

  • Doctor records
  • Hospital reports
  • Prescriptions
  • Treatment plans
  • Details of any diagnosis you received

Additionally, they could arrange for you to attend an independent medical assessment in your local area. The assessment could provide a report on the current state and full extent of your condition, including the long term impact it may have had on you.

How Is Medical Negligence Proven?

Although medical evidence is important when determining whether negligence occurred, it isn’t the only factor that will be considered.

Instead, the Bolam test may also be used to assess whether the care you were given met the required standard. The test often involves a group of healthcare professionals with training in a relevant field evaluating your case.

We understand the process of seeking medical negligence compensation may seem complex. However, an experienced solicitor could help take you through the different stages of the claims process to help you build a strong case and get the compensation you deserve.

Cancer is an extremely serious disease that comes in many different forms, such as bladder cancer or breast cancer.

If you visit your doctor with cancer symptoms, they must take reasonable steps to refer you for further tests or arrange for you to see a specialist. However, in some cases, your doctor may fail to meet the minimum standard of care, causing you further harm.

Medical Negligence Claims Calculator

There are several factors that may be considered when calculating the value of your claim. For instance, medical evidence may help assess the severity of your condition and how badly your quality of life was affected.

In addition, a document called the Judicial College Guidelines may be used to help value your claim.

As you can see, the amount of compensation you receive will vary depending on factors specific to your case. For that reason, it’s difficult to provide a final settlement figure that you may receive.

However, you could use our medical negligence compensation calculator to get an estimate of how much your claim may be worth. Please only use this figure as a guide, as your actual settlement will vary.

Alternatively, you may have needed to seek additional care for someone dependant on you during your recovery. If so, you could claim back the additional care costs.
