This could be anything from an infection to severe brain injuries. These cases could also involve the mother, the baby, or both. Sometimes, these sorts of incidents could happen because the midwife has failed to notice that the mother or baby is in distress. However, there are different scenarios too, for example, the midwife failing to ensure all the placenta has been delivered which results in a preventable infection, or where the birthing staff fail to act when the unborn baby had secreted within the womb also causing an unnecessary infection.

For many cancers early intervention is key so that the sufferer can recover completely from the illness. Cancer negligence could happen in a number of different ways. An example could include if the disease has not been diagnosed properly, for example, it may have been diagnosed as a different condition or it could have been missed altogether by a doctor who would have been expected to identify with the symptoms and act quickly. If the patients condition worsens more due to the delay in diagnosis this could be considered a negligence.
Another example is when incorrect treatment is given. In both scenarios, the consequences could be very severe. This is because late or incorrect treatment could cause the cancer to spread to other parts of the body. At best, this might mean that more treatment is needed. At worst, this could be fatal. If you or a loved one has suffered more than you would have done had the diagnosis been given at the earliest opportunity and the correct treatment started when needed call our advisors and they will be able to assess your case.

Further examples where you may be able to make a claim are if negligent dental advice might have led to your oral health getting worse or failing to notice the signs of oral cancer and allowing the condition to progress.
