Within our panel of experience medical negligence solicitors, there are lawyers with experience of a variety of different medical negligence cases. In the below sections of the guide, we go through these in a little more detail in order to help you understand more about these types of claims.
You may decide to proceed with a claim with the assistance of our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors if you’ve suffered negligence leading to a birth injury, whether this is to the mother or the child. This could have happened in a number of different ways. Some of the scenarios could include a healthcare professional failing to monitor correctly or failing to spot signs of mother or baby distress which leads to either suffering health wise, a episiotomy performed incorrectly, the placenta not being delivered correctly causing infection. In order for your case to be a success your medical negligence solicitor will need to prove that the medical professional who had a duty of care towards you, breached this by providing negligent treatment which caused you or your child to suffer necessarily.
If you were to go ahead with a childbirth injury claim of this nature, you may be able to claim for both the physical injuries themselves as well as any psychological trauma that directly resulted from the negligence.
Often, when we are about to go into surgery, whether emergency surgery, elective procedures or planned cosmetic surgery, you may sign a consent form warning you of the risks of such surgeries. However, surgical negligence would not be something that would be foreseen as one of these risks. Should your surgeon have not used properly sterilised equipment, and it led to an infection, or the surgeon operated on the wrong body part, then you could have cause to claim. Other reasons could include failure in the standard of care of the anaethetist, or even surgical items left inside you which have led to further treatment that would not usually have been required had the negligence not happened.
Whether private or NHS claims, our panel of professional negligence solicitors could assist with a number of hospital negligence cases. Whether failing standards at the hospital have caused you to pick up an infection that might have been avoided, or you have experienced misdiagnosis that led to a condition getting worse by a consultant or other doctor at the hospital, our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could help you to make a claim.
Lack of care in nursing homes could cause significant harm to an elderly person. If they are not looked after properly and the correct standards of care are not met, and this causes illness to get worse or perhaps even injuries, then a claim could be possible. You may feel that your elderly relative would not be in a position to claim for themselves, but it might be worth knowing that you, as a relative could make a claim on their behalf for compensation.
Negligence by a dentist could also lead to clinical negligence in Batley claims if a patient has suffered avoidable injuries due to poor standard of treatment while visiting the dentist. Remember, you don’t have to search for medical negligence solicitors in my area for dental claims. There are a number of ways in which dental negligence could happen, and these could include misdiagnosis of a dental illness which was misdiagnosed and allowed to worsen, incorrect teeth extracted, or damage to other teeth when an extraction was taking place to another tooth. Your medical negligence lawyer would need to be able to prove that the damage was due to negligence for a claim to be valid.
Negligence by a doctor could involve them failing to diagnose cancer because they did not send the patient for appropriate testing when presented with symptoms that reflect cancer. A medical negligence claim could possibly come from being given the wrong treatment for cancer, leading to worsening of the disease or symptoms that you should not have experienced. A personal injury claim led by our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could compensate you not only for the physical but the emotional trauma of something like this happening.

The GP may talk to us about symptoms, examine us if necessary and then prescribe treatment or refer us to someone that could help. If they fail to listen to your symptoms, misdiagnosing you, and your illness becomes worse, or if they prescribe treatment due to a misdiagnosis which causes your health to deteriorate feel free to call us and we will try to answer any questions you may have. Our panel of medical negligence solicitors can cover the Batley area, and we would be glad to help advise you on what steps you could take.

We feel this is a great way to engage the services of a personal injury lawyer, as it lowers any risk of you having to pay upfront any legal fees associated with using a medical negligence solicitor.
