Medical Negligence – Making a Claim
If someone feels they have incurred an injury due to the actions (or lack of actions) by a doctor, nurse, surgeon or dentist, then they may be liable to make a medical negligence claim (also known as a ‘clinical negligence claim’).
Types of Medical Claims
Medical negligence compensation claims can include mis-diagnosis, delay in diagnosis which resulted in an injury, surgical errors, neglect and injuries to a mother or child during childbirth (birth injury claims).
The compensation amounts that you can receive following a successful medical negligence (clinical negligence) claim depend on many factors.
These can include the severity of the injury caused, your salary (if your normal salary is high and you cannot work as a result of your injury, you would expect more compensation), and the number of financial dependents you have.
Medical Negligence Solicitors
Due to their complex nature, medical negligence claims can be lengthy. Difficulties include proving that a medical practitioner was, in fact, negligent, and proving that the injury was a direct result of that medical professional’s negligence.
It is therefore crucial that claimants get help from specialist medical negligence solicitors who have experience in the field.
