Medical negligence claims

It is stressful enough for most of us finding out that we are ill or undergoing major treatment or surgery. The last thing we want is for the illness or injury to be made worse by negligent medical care.

If something goes wrong that could or should have been prevented, you may be able to claim compensation for medical negligence.

Who can you claim compensation from?

All medical practitioners have a duty towards their patients, including:

  • General Practitioners
  • Surgeons
  • Dentists
  • Nurses
  • Specialists, such as chiropractors, obstetricians, gynaecologists

If you are injured due to their negligence, you are entitled to compensation.

What can you claim compensation for?

It can be difficult knowing whether a medical practitioner should be held responsible for your injury or illness in some circumstances, such as when their actions exacerbated an already underlying condition. Some of the common errors that compensation is claimed for are:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delays in diagnosis
  • Surgical errors
  • Birth injuries

The best advice is to speak to a solicitor to see whether your injury is covered by the law.
