First of all, what is medical negligence? Medical practitioners have a legal duty of care towards their patients, which means that they are legally obliged to deliver the highest possible standard of care towards their patients. If this duty of care is not upheld on the part of a medical practitioner, which results in the patient becoming harmed then the medical practitioner, or the institution that they work for could be held legally liable for any injury, illness or worsening of a medical condition that is caused. In other words, medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence or medical malpractice can be defined as substandard care towards a patient, by a medical practitioner, such as a doctor, nurse or dentist, which results in the patient becoming unwell, injured, or worsens a medical condition that they already suffer from.
Examples of medical negligence can include: medical mistakes such as prescribing the wrong medication, a doctor failing to spot the signs of a serious medical condition such as cancer, or prescribing unsuitable treatment such as medication that the patient is allergic to.
Clinical Negligence Explained
If you have been a victim of clinical negligence, you could be entitled to a compensation payout, this can be much higher in cases of serious injury. Your payout will compensate you for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity that you have suffered and will also cover any financial losses you experienced because of your injuries such as loss of income, further medical expenses, travel expenses and the cost of receiving at home care.
In order to successfully make a clinical negligence claim, your solicitor will have to provide evidence to prove the following points. Firstly, that the medical practitioner that treated you, owed you a duty of care, i.e. that you were their patient. Secondly, that the practitioner performed a negligent action, or inaction, which resulted in an avoidable accident. Thirdly, that the accident led to the patient becoming injured, ill or suffering the worsening of a medical condition that they already suffered from.

Trauma Or Medical Negligence Leading To Birth Injuries
Birth injuries are when a mother or an infant is harmed because of an accident or trauma that takes place during childbirth. Although some birth injuries are caused by unavoidable accidents, others are avoidable and are caused by medical malpractice. In fact we have probably all heard of birth negligence stories, negligence on the part of a doctor, midwife, nurse or another medical practitioner, which caused birth injuries that harmed the mother or child. Serious birth injuries which can be caused by negligence include the child contracting an infection, the breaking or fracturing of bones and hypoxia (when the infant is deprived of oxygen). These can cause lifelong health problems or disabilities.
If you have been injured because of birth negligence, when you were born or giving birth to your child you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Similarly, if you have a child who is under 18 who has been injured because of medical negligence during childbirth, you can claim compensation on their behalf. This will pay for any medical treatment or specialist care that they might need.
Call Legal Expert today, and if after listening to your birth negligence story we can confirm that you have legitimate grounds to make a compensation claim, then we can can supply an excellent personal injury solicitor to handle your claim.
GPs (General Practitioners) are usually the first people we turn to when we are unwell. Most GPs deliver an excellent standard of care, however, if a GP neglects their duty of care towards us, this can result in us becoming injured, ill, or experiencing the worsening of an existing medical condition. What’s more, if GP malpractice takes the form of the GP failing to spot the signs of a serious illness such as cancer and doesn’t refer the patient to a specialist, this can have dire consequences for the patient.
If you have been harmed due to GP malpractice, call Legal Expert today to see how much you could be entitled to claim.
