What is medical negligence? Medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence, is defined as a medical malpractice or substandard care towards a patient from a medical practitioner or institution. This malpractice could be a medical accident, late diagnosis, misdiagnosis, or issuing of the wrong treatment. It results in the patient becoming ill, injured, or the worsening of a medical condition they already suffer from. If you have been through a similar incident then you may be legally entitled to claim tens of thousands of pounds in medical negligence compensation.
To make a medical negligence claim, your medical and clinical negligence solicitor will help you put together a case which proves the following:
- That the Defendant owed you, the Claimant a duty of care, (i.e. that you had a patient-doctor relationship)
- That the Defendant’s negligent actions, or inactions, breached this duty of care
- That the Claimant suffered an avoidable accident, which caused the Claimant an injury or illness, or worsened an existing condition, which was caused by the negligent action or inaction of the Defendant.
Some common questions we are often asked by defendants making a medical negligence claim (no matter the location) include “can I claim medical negligence compensation on behalf of a relative?” The answer is that you can legally make a clinical negligence claim on behalf of your next of kin under special circumstances. This means if they are mentally incapacitated and therefore unable to claim on their own behalf, or now deceased. Another common question is “what is the time limit for making a medical negligence claim?” The answer is that most clinical negligence claims in the UK, have a three-year time limit from the time that the medical negligence incident occurred or the Claimant discovered that they had been injured. There are certain exceptions to this rule.
