Getting the right solicitor to work on your claim can be difficult if you are searching on your own. So we have included some tips and advice on how to put together the right legal team for you.
Before looking at how to select the best solicitor from all your options, we will look at exactly what medical negligence is in a legal context. It occurs when a healthcare professional (such as a nurse, doctor, dentist or surgeon) allows one of their patients to be harmed in some way, either due to the treatment being given, or not given. Negligence could be caused by the medical professionals oversight of your treatment, not being treated in the right way or being prescribed the wrong medication. The damage which the patient has suffered could be either physical, psychological, or even both. Some common examples of medical negligence could include any of the following;
- The practitioner giving an insufficient level of care or supervision which leads to the patient suffering the effects of some form of accident
- Administering treatment which is incorrect to the patient, or giving the right treatment incorrectly.
- Avoidable delays in the provision of critical treatment.
- Errors during surgery, including during the preparation for and recovery from surgery.
- Misdiagnosis of an illness or condition which leads to the patients/ claimants correct treatment not being supplied to them.
- Being given a prescription for the inappropriate medicine which has then harmed the patient in some way. TAn example of this could be the prescribed drugs causing an allergic reaction.
The causes of medical negligence listed above are some of the most common circumstances under which medical negligence can happen and people can suffer as a result. Any of these can occur either in isolation or in concert with each other.
There are several things which need to be shown for a solicitor or claimant to make a successful medical negligence claim. These are that the person, people or the body which was providing the care did owe the claimant a duty of care to do no harm to them. Next, that they failed to meet this standard and that the patient suffered as a result. Finally, it must be shown that all of this could have been avoided.

Serious and severe cancer negligence claims could result from a patient developing a terminal case of cancer through the negligent treatment received. If the cancer is misdiagnosed or the wrong treatment (or medication) is prescribed, there can be a critical delay in getting the right treatment. This delay can mean the difference between recovering and the patient dying. Legal Expert can help you to get the compensation you deserve, or can also help if you need to claim on behalf of a loved one.
Birth Negligence Claims
You may have heard birth negligence stories about the serious consequences that negligence on the part of a doctor or other medical professional can have on a patient. The effects on both mother or baby could be potentially catastrophic. The mother and the child could suffer serious harm, such as muscular tears, cuts, lacerations and bruising. The child could be more seriously affected and could suffer broken bones, or suffer from a lack of air. In turn this could lead to temporary or even permanent brain damage. Legal Expert can help families to make a birth negligence claim.
Report GP Negligence
The team working at your local GP surgery are often responsible for making initial diagnosis and treatment of your medical condition. In many different cases they will find that the patient needs to be referred to a specialist for further treatment or other medication and examination. When a GP makes a mistake you probably want to report GP negligence to the appropriate authorities and seek compensation. Not being treated appropriately at an early stage could mean you coming to harm or even be life-threatening. Will provide you with an appropriate team to help you make a claim and organise things such as medical examinations to secure the evidence needed.
Nursing Home Negligence Claims
You may need to work with a nursing home negligence expert to make a compensation claim if the level of care which you have been provided is substandard, or below that which you are legally entitled to receive and that led you to suffer some form of harm.

Harm could be caused by a slip, trip, or fall, or the failure to spot a serious medical situation. In some cases this could be life-threatening. Our clinical negligence team can help anyone who has been harmed in a nursing home or a care home to seek the compensation they are entitled to. We can work with a family member if the person affected is not able to do so themselves.
