Have you been the victim of medical negligence? If you have been involved in an incident causing you harm in Merthyr Tydfil that has stemmed from clinical negligence in Wales, you may be feeling stressed and somewhat upset. After all, we trust that medical professionals will always get things right. Generally speaking, the medical care in the UK is thought by many to be fantastic. However, this does not stop mistakes from occurring and if you have had the misfortune of experiencing one of these errors due to negligence you might want to think about making a personal injury claim with the help of our panel as an alternative option to medical negligence solicitors in Merthyr Tydfil.
So, how could you tell whether you have the basis for one of the clinical negligence cases in 2019? First and foremost, you will need to be able to prove that you have suffered as a result of someone else’s error or negligence. Therefore, when it comes to medical negligence, you may need to show that the individual acted negligently and you also need to prove that this caused you some form of avoidable harm. There are many ways the individual in question could have acted negligently. Perhaps they failed to provide you with the expected levels of care leading to infection? Maybe they made a mistake during the treatment process leading you to suffer worsening symptoms? There are many different scenarios that could lead to negligence, which we explain more about below.
Aside from this, you may simply need to show that the negligence happened within the past three years and that you suffered harm because of it. The medical negligence claims time limit on most personal injury cases is three years from the incident date. However, there are also incidents that do not become known about until years later, so there are exceptions to the limit that might mean you have a claim long after the 3 years. Instead, the 3 years might begin from the date you became aware of the negligence and its effect on your health. There are further exceptions to this rule, please contact us to discuss your circumstances.

There is only one place to begin, and this is with GP negligence. This is something our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could help you with.

In addition to this, our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could also assist you when it comes to claims for surgical negligence. There are risks associated with all types of surgeries. However, this does not account for negligence leading to more ill-health or injury that could have been avoided. If you have suffered an injury or illness because of a mistake made by the surgeon, you could make a claim. There may be cases whereby surgical instruments have been left inside people’s bodies and so they have had to have another operation to remove it. For more information regarding surgical negligence, please contact us using the details on this page.
We could also help if you have suffered dental negligence. There are many different ways that dental negligence or malpractice could happen. This could occur because the dentist in question has extracted the wrong tooth or it could be because they have damaged a healthy tooth during treatment. Other examples could include incidents whereby negligent advice has been given which has made your oral health worse, as well as cases whereby your dentist has missed signs of oral cancer that they should have noticed. If you believe that you have been injured as a result of dental negligence, please do not hesitate to contact us for free, no-obligation legal advice.

Aside from the examples that we have discussed, our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could potentially assist when it comes to care home personal injury claims too.
