Clinical or medical negligence is a term used to describe a situation whereby a patient who was under the care of a medical professional is harmed in some way due to a mistake, error or oversight on the part of the doctor. Typical examples of medical negligence include:
- Being prescribed the wrong medication, causing harm such as an allergic reaction.
- Critical treatment being delayed for some reason, causing harm to the patient.
- Accidents or mistakes during an operation.
- Misdiagnosis of a medical condition, leading to the wrong treatment being administered.
- Falling victim to an accident due to insufficient patient care, resulting in a personal injury.
These are the most common forms of medical negligence, there are many more.
Every successful claim for clinical negligence compensation has three things in common, and these are:
- The doctor who caused harm to the patient had a duty to safeguard the patient’s health.
- The doctor failed to meet this duty, which directly resulted in harm to the patient.
- The failure in duty could have been avoided in some way.

Legal Expert can arrange for an independent evaluation of your psychological condition to prove liability of the dentist in these cases.
Claim for GP or Doctor Negligence
When your doctor makes a mistake, it can have serious consequences on your health. Your doctor is the first person you see when you are feeling ill, and they can make mistakes such as:
- Misdiagnosing a serious medical condition and treating you for a minor one.
- Prescribing the wrong medication which could cause an allergic reaction.
- Failing to identify the seriousness of a medical condition and not referring you to a specialist.
These mistakes and more are commonly made by a GP. Legal Expert has a lot of experience in proving liability in GP negligence cases and can help you to claim the compensation you are entitled to.

- Misdiagnosis of the type of cancer the patient is suffering from.
- Recommending the wrong treatment.
- Causing delays in treatment that lower the patients chance of survival.
If you have lost a loved one due to some form of cancer negligence, then Legal Expert can help you claim the maximum amount of clinical negligence compensation possible.
Claim for Negligence in a Nursing Home
Every nursing or care home across the UK has a legal duty to provide every one of its residents with a specifically defined level of care at all times. When the home fails in this duty to provide care, residents can come to harm in many ways, such as:
- Becoming seriously ill due to a medical condition going unrecognised and hence untreated.
- Sustaining a personal injury through an accident such as a slip, trip or fall through inadequate care and supervision.
- The incorrect administering of prescription medication.
If you have a loved one who has suffered due to clinical negligence in a care home, then Legal Expert can help you claim compensation on their behalf.
