Pursuing a claim can not only help repair your own life but also ensure valuable lessons are learned so as to avoid suffering for others in the same way.
Medical negligence can be wide ranging and some of the most common types of medical negligence include birth injuries, misdiagnosis, surgical errors and prescription errors. It doesn’t have to be within a hospital, it could be in a care home, GP surgery, or even a dentist surgery.
Negligence is when the treating clinician provides treatment which falls below a standard considered reasonable for the clinician’s experience and specialism. This may be by doing something they should not have done, or failing to do something which they should have done.
Some examples of medical negligence claims include:
- Accident and emergency claims
