Our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors can assist you in any medical negligence claim you may need to make against both private and NHS negligence. Below in the following sections are different examples of types of negligence.
GP doctors are obligated by a set of professional values and are expected to deliver at a certain level when working in the UK. GP’s are bound by a duty of care and a code of practice to provide their patient with an appropriate level of care. Not all mistakes made by GP’s will mean a breach in this code of duty, but if negligence is presence and a patient is harmed unnecessarily, it may be a case of GP negligence. If you believe you have suffered harm to your health as a result of a GP failing to correctly diagnose your illness when it would have been reasonably expected for them to do so, resulting in a failure to provide you with suitable treatment, or otherwise properly carrying out their duties, then our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could possibly help you make a claim for GP malpractice.
It is the doctors responsibility to closely monitor your health and the baby for any signs of foetal distress during the labour process. Failure to do so could result in potentially serious health issues getting overlooked such as Hypoxia. Childbirth could be a difficult and complex process at times for you and your baby. If there is negligent treatment during the delivery of a baby, in worse case scenarios it could potentially lead to life changing illnesses such as Cerebral Palsy. Injuries that could be caused to a mother during a negligent child birth may include, retention of placenta, internal damage or Postpartum bleeding or postpartum hemorrhage (PPH).
Surgical negligence cases are medical negligence cases in which the patient has been harmed by the improper or negligent carrying out of surgery. Due to the complicated and physically invasive nature of surgery a surgical negligence case could have a severe impact on a patient’s health. In relatively minor cases doctors may improperly close up the patient’s body after surgery resulting in avoidable scarring and infection or damage to organs and surrounding tissues. In more extreme cases doctors may carry out an operation and surgery different to what was intended for the patient, or leave surgical instruments inside the patient’s body after the procedure is finished.
