First of all, it is important to know exactly what medical negligence is. Medical or clinical negligence is a term used to describe any situation whereby a patient receiving treatment from a medical professional is actually harmed in some way due to oversight, error or malpractice.
Typical examples of medical negligence include:
- Misdiagnosis of a medical condition.
- Delay in providing treatment.
- Prescribing the wrong medication.
- Mistakes or accidents during a surgical procedure.
- Allowing the patient to become the victim of an accident due to insufficient care.
These are just a few of the ways that medical negligence can occur, there are many more, some of which are discussed in greater detail further down the page.
Every successful claim for compensation following an occurrence of medical negligence will have to prove three key facts, and these are:
1 – That the medical professional who was responsible for the negligence occurring had a duty to provide healthcare for the patient.
2 – That the medical professional failed in this duty, which directly resulted in harm to the patient.
3 – That the failure of duty could have been avoided.
If these three facts are true in your case, then Legal Expert offers free legal advice Tamworth residents can take advantage of. Give us a call on the number at the bottom of the page, and we will explain how our national claims service works. We have a proven track record going back more than 30-years in claiming the maximum compensation possible for clients in complex medical negligence cases.
