Below, we will take a look at some examples of different cases that could result in medical negligence payouts. This is not an exhaustive list but should help to give you a better understanding of what medical negligence is. It is important to keep in mind that if you for you to have suffered medical negligence, it must be proven that the standard of care you received from a medical professional was sub-par and it has caused your health to suffer as a result then you could have a valid claim for personal injury compensation.
Firstly, you could make a claim for medical negligence in Croydon against a hospital, whether that is through the private or public sectors. Our panel of negligence solicitors could assist when it comes to both types of claims. There are many different ways these sorts of incidents could happen. We will discuss some examples below, like surgery negligence and birth illnesses. However, we have also assisted with cases like infections that have been caused because of poor hygiene levels.
As mentioned above, we could also help you when it comes to making a claim for negligence because of a mistake that has happened during a surgical procedure. While there is no denying that all sorts of surgeries and operations, including both cosmetic and medical, come with risks, this does not mean that negligence is classed as a risk and can therefore be forgotten. If an error has happened and you can prove that it could have been avoided, you may have the basis for a claim. Examples of where surgical staff have breach their duty by providing substandard care and this has resulted in harm, could range from procedures being carried out on the wrong part of the body which have resulted in damage to healthy organs or loss of a healthy limb, to incidents whereby surgical instruments have been retained and this has caused a life threatening infection.
You may also be looking for our panel as an alternative choice to medical negligence solicitors in Croydon if you or someone you love has experienced cancer negligence. A late or incorrect cancer diagnosis could result in the condition spreading and getting worse. This could have a serious impact on the outcome of the cancer treatment as unfortunately, there have been a number of cases whereby situations like this have been fatal. If you feel that those treating or diagnosing you have been negligent and this has directly resulted in your condition becoming worse, then do consider calling us to see if you might have a claim.
Aside from the examples above, our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could help with birth infections, illness, and injuries. These cases could be very traumatic, as they could cause serious injuries to both the mother and the baby. These incidents might happen because the medical professionals in question have not noticed that the baby and/or mother were in distress and therefore have not acted to quickly enough. An example of such is, the incorrect use of forceps which has caused life long injuries, such as permanent scarring for either mother, baby or both. Misuse of forceps could also lead to internal tearing which has resulted in an unnecessary infection for the mother, or the baby suffering with a brain injury. Unfortunately, the previous examples are only a few of what could happen if medical professionals let their standards slip during child birth, please contact us using the below information to discuss more.
From medication mix-ups to bed sores mismanagement, there are many different ways that someone could experience nursing home negligence. You may be interested in information about this because you want to make a claim for yourself or because you are looking to make a claim on behalf of a loved one. Either way, all you need to do is give us a call for more information and we will be able to assist you.

Aside from the examples so far, you may want to look to our panel as another option over medical negligence solicitors in Croydon to help you to make a claim if you have experienced GP negligence. When someone is not feeling very well, they will book an appointment with their GP who is typically expected to assess our symptoms and carry out the required tests to get to the bottom of what is wrong. If a GP allows their standard of care to fall below what is expected of them then it means that their patient could not get the treatment needed as necessary. GP negligence could also mean that we end up taking medication that is not right for us and it has resulted in adverse side effects. For more information on GP negligence, please read our useful guide here.
Finally, our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could assist you with dental negligence claims. This could relate to incidents whereby your dentist or any other member of staff in your dental surgery has made an error that has caused you harm. There are many ways this could happen. For example, your dentist may have provided you with negligent advice which has actually made your oral health worse, or he or she may have failed to pick up on evident signs of oral cancer. Other examples include the incorrect tooth being extracted, a healthy tooth being damaged during treatment, and the wrong treatment being carried out altogether.
