What is medical negligence?

Medical negligence refers to an incident where a doctor, GP or other medical professional has failed to carry out their duty, causing harm to the patient. The harm caused must be an avoidable, direct result of their behaviour.
Cases may not always be clear cut, especially where the patient is already ill. Proving what caused the illness /injury can be tricky, and medical evidence is often needed. Using the evidence, industry experts will then decide what was responsible for the damage.

What can I claim for?

The most common types of medical negligence cases are:

  • Birth injuries
  • Claims against hospitals, surgeons doctors
  • Cosmetic surgery
  • Dental claims
  • Delayed diagnosis claims
  • Head/brain injuries
  • Misdiagnosis
  • NHS claims
  • Surgical accidents

Where you have been let down you may be able to claim. For an honest review of your case contact the lawyers at Free Legal Advice.
