First of all before we begin, let’s look at a medical negligence definition. Medical negligence, which is also called medical malpractice or clinical negligence is when a medical practitioner delivers substandard care towards a patient and the substandard care leads to the patient’s medical condition worsening, or the patient becoming injured or ill unnecessarily. All medical practitioners such as doctors, nurses, dentists and care home workers have a duty of care towards their patients, which means that they are legally obliged to provide them with a minimum standard of care. If the medical practitioner negligently harms a patient then they or the medical practice that they work for could be held liable for their injuries and have to pay them compensation as a result.
If you have been injured or made ill because of medical negligence, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Whether your injuries were caused by a medical negligence cancer diagnosis or a dentist extracting the wrong tooth you could be entitled to make a medical negligence claim for compensation. Of course, finding a medical negligence lawyer to represent your claim could be daunting. Those we help often ask us, “Do I need to use clinical negligence solicitors in my area to handle my claim?” and “Should I read medical negligence solicitor reviews online?” We will look at what you should consider when choosing a medical negligence solicitor in more detail below.
Many claimants ask our team “Should I use a clinical negligence solicitor in my area to handle my claim?” We always advise our clients that they should prioritise a solicitor’s skills, experience, field of expertise and track record for winning claims, over the solicitors location. You may also choose to use a solicitor’s firm that offers the option to make a no win no fee claim. Many clients worry that if they use a solicitor with offices based further afield, they will not be able to communicate with them properly. These days, it is common for solicitors to use digital communications technology such as email to consult their clients, and keep them informed of how the case is proceeding. So communication difficulties are not something you need to worry about.
