Have you suffered an injury as a result of a mistake by a medical practitioner?
When you consult a GP or visit a hospital for treatment, you expect to be treated with an appropriate standard of skill and care. However, in some instances you may feel that you have received substandard care. If this has caused you injury, you may have a claim against the doctor or hospital which treated you.
Clinical negligence claims are a very different type of case to deal with compared to other personal injury claims. When instructing a solicitor to deal with a clinical negligence claim for you, it is important that you choose a firm with the experience to bring your claim to a successful conclusion.
There are many examples of potentially negligent medical treatment including:
- Doctors failing to detect signs of a serious illness, such as cancer, which could then lead to severe personal injury
- Failures to diagnose other serious conditions, such as heart disease or meningitis
- Operations performed negligently, leaving the patient with health difficulties
- Negligence in the course of delivering a child, which leaves the child with lifelong problems.
