Areas of Law / Medical Negligence

I have been having problems with my right knee for the past four years. Five different consultants diagnosed arthritis and said nothing could be done. Now they say it’s a cartilage problem and I’m due to have an operation. They say I’ll be back at work shortly. Surely this should have been discovered before? Do I have a claim for negligence?

The more doctors who miss a problem then the easier it is for them to say they acted reasonably, since they will rely on each other’s actions.  Nevertheless if the cartilage problem was present four years ago it’s understandable that you want to know why it was missed. It will be worth making a complaint to the hospital and then, if you’re still not happy, discuss your case in detail with a solicitor specialising in clinical negligence claims. Don’t delay.
