Before we carry on, let’s define what medical negligence is. Medical negligence is also referred to as clinical negligence and medical malpractice. It is when a medical practitioner harms a patient, causing them an illness, injury or makes their pre-existing condition worse, by failing to care for the patient properly. Some real-life examples of medical negligence could be a doctor prescribing the wrong medicine, hospital staff failing to provide for a patient’s medical needs, or misdiagnosis. Medical negligence can occur in any area of medicine such as dentistry, at a GP’s surgery, during hospital treatment or physiotherapy.
If a patient is harmed because of medical negligence, they could be entitled to claim compensation for their injuries. If you were injured because of NHS negligence, you would claim against your local NHS trust. If you have been made ill, injured or had your existing medical condition worsened because of negligence on the part of a private healthcare provider, you will make a personal injury claim against that business. Trust Medical Negligence Assist, to supply you with the right personal injury solicitor to handle your claim correctly.
We will now advise you on how to find the right personal injury solicitor to handle your claim. Remember, if you have been injured, ill, or had your existing medical condition made worse because of negligence in Scotland, our panel of medical negligence solicitors can cover the Inverness area.

Whether you were injured in a care home in Scotland, suffered misdiagnosis, were injured due to a doctor’s negligent behaviour or suffered due to hospital medical negligence, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
Remember, at Medical Negligence Assist we will handle claims for any sort of medical negligence, as long as you were injured or otherwise harmed in some way.

This means that you have to begin your medical negligence claim within three years of the incident happening, or you realising that you have been harmed. There are sometimes exceptions to this rule, so if you fall outside the medical negligence claims time limit, you could still be entitled to claim. Call us today for more advice on the subject.

If you have experienced medical negligence during surgery, you could be entitled to make an operation and surgery claim. Surgery is a critical time when surgeons, anaesthetists and nursing staff have to take the utmost care to ensure a patient’s wellbeing. Examples of general negligence during surgery can include: a surgeon performing an operation on the wrong part of the body (for example, amputating the wrong limb), an operation being carried out needlessly on a patient when there was a less invasive option, a foriegn body being left inside a patient – requiring a further operation to remove it, or an internal mesh not being inserted correctly.
If you have been injured, became ill or had your existing medical condition made worse because of negligence in surgery at a hospital in Scotland, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Call Medical Negligence Assist today and if you are entitled to claim a solicitor from our panel could help you make a claim.
During pregnancy, childbirth and the period immediately afterwards, it is essential that both the mother and infant receive the highest possible standards of care. If an accident during pregnancy or birth happens because of negligence this can result in the mother or child being injured. These injuries can have long term or even life-threatening effects. For example, if the mother develops gestational diabetes during pregnancy, this can have drastic consequences if it is misdiagnosed and goes untreated, including a slightly higher chance of the infant suffering a neonatal death. Alternatively, a mother can also develop an infection called postpartum sepsis, up to six weeks after the birth of her child. If this is not treated correctly, it can result in the mother suffering an unnecessary death.
Call Medical Negligence Assist if you or your child have been injured because of hospital negligence or hospital staff negligence leading to pregnancy, birth or postpartum injuries. Our panel of medical negligence solicitors can cover the Inverness area and help you win the compensation that you are entitled to.
Most hospitals are well run by a team of staff who work flat out to provide their patients with the highest possible standards of care. However, medical negligence could happen, especially in the current climate of cuts from central government and hospitals having to operate on reduced resources. Examples of Scotland hospital negligence or hospital staff negligence could include misdiagnosis, accidents involving anaesthetics, Accident & Emergency department avoidable injuries or a doctor prescribing the wrong dosage of medication to a patient, amongst others.
You can also claim compensation on behalf of your next of kin relative if they have been injured because of medical negligence and are unable to claim for themselves. This could be because they are not judged to be of sound mind, for example, if they are suffering from dementia and experienced negligence in a care home. Examples of neglect in a care home can be willful neglect or abuse, a patient being given the wrong medication, or a patient being left alone unsupervised with a violent co-resident.
Medical Negligence Assist could supply you with an excellent medical negligence solicitor from our panel to handle your claim for neglect in a care home in Scotland. The money awarded for your claim could help to cover the costs of any medical treatment they may need as a result of their injuries and enable them to pay for the best possible standards of residential care, going forward.
Unfortunately, cancer spreads and worsens over time, meaning that if a patient experiences a misdiagnosis or late diagnosis, this can make the disease harder to treat. If you went to your GP with unusual symptoms and had them dismissed as something more minor, or an oncologist misdiagnosed your cancer in a hospital, and your cancer worsened over time, you could be entitled to make a misdiagnosis of cancer negligence claim. In the very sad circumstances that you had a relative that died a preventable death because of misdiagnosis of cancer, you could be entitled to claim compensation on their behalf.
Call Medical Negligence Assist today, to see if you are entitled to make a claim for misdiagnosis of cancer.
