When you are looking for a personal injury lawyer, it could also be a good idea to read medical negligence solicitor reviews. This could help you to get a truthful understanding of the service provided by the professional in question. After all, anyone could write a sales pitch about their service; instead, you may want to hear from people that were once in your position. Plus, when you have made a claim, it is a good idea to leave comments too to help others.
There are different reasons why you may be looking for medical negligence solicitors. Below, we take a look at some of the most common cases that could be handled by our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors in further detail.
Firstly, our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could assist with Altrincham hospital negligence. If you have been injured at Altrincham hospital, whether an NHS or private hospital, there is the chance you could be able to make a claim. There are many ways negligence could happen at a hospital. This could be a birth injury or a surgical mistake, for example. We will discuss both options in further detail below. There are other ways negligence could happen as well, from poor hygiene standards causing infection to misdiagnosis instances where your health could be negatively affected by negligence.
Aside from surgical negligence, another type of negligence is birth injury negligence. There are many different incidents that could occur and cause birth injury negligence. A lot of these scenarios happen when the midwife in question fails to notice that the baby and/or mother are in distress. However, there are some other ways that this sort of negligence could happen, for example, the medical professional may have used the incorrect birth assisting tools. These claims could often have lifelong consequences, which could be extremely traumatic and difficult to deal with – especially if further medical treatment is likely in the future.
In addition to this, our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could work on cases whereby mistakes have been made during surgery or post-operation. There is no denying that all operations come with different risks. However, surgeons have a duty to make sure they follow protocol and put your safety first at all times. Mistakes that could be made include everything from retained surgical instruments to operating on the wrong limb. If this has happened, you may want to make a claim for Altrincham hospital negligence.
In addition to the situations that have been mentioned, you could be able to claim for cancer treatment mistakes. Cancer is a disease that sometimes spreads at a rapid pace, which is one of the reasons it could be so deadly. If the right treatment is not administered or treatment is delayed, this could cause the cancer to spread to other parts of the body and get worse. In some cases, instances like this could well be fatal. If you have lost a loved one because of this, you could be able to make a claim for this. One thing you could do is to give our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors a call for more information.
If you have been the victim of GP negligence, you may also have the basis for a claim. When you are not feeling very well, you might go and see your GP. You might expect your GP to be able to diagnose what has gone wrong so that you could get the right treatment. If your GP makes a mistake due to negligence, then you could end up on the wrong treatment path. This could mean the treatment you really need is delayed. It could also mean you end up taking medication that is not right for you, which could cause further symptoms.
Aside from the scenarios that have already been mentioned, you may be looking at our panel of solicitors if you or a loved one has experienced care home negligence. When someone we love gets older, the decision to send them to a care home is very difficult. However, we might choose to do so because we believe it is the best decision for them. Therefore, if negligence causes them harm, such as negligent treatment leading to a fall, infection due to poor care home standards or other types of negligence it could be very difficult to come to terms with. For more information, all you need to do is give our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors a call.
Aside from the examples that have already been mentioned, you may be thinking about making a dental injury claim for dental negligence. From extracting the wrong tooth to instances whereby negligent oral advice has been provided, there are many situations that could result in a dental negligence compensation claim. You may also be thinking about making this sort of claim if your dentist did not pick up on the signs and symptoms of a serious condition, like oral cancer. Moreover, if your dentist damaged a healthy tooth during a procedure, you could be able to claim for this too. For more information regarding dental negligence please read here.
