There are many different sorts of cases that could be handled by our panel rather than you choosing medical negligence solicitors in Nottinghamshire. Below, we will take a look at some of the most common examples to give you a better understanding of the sort of incidents that could potentially result in a claim being put forward.
The first example we are going to take a look at that our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could handle is care home negligence. When someone we love reaches an age whereby they are no longer able to care for themselves, we may do everything we could to try and look after them ourselves. However, there may come a stage whereby we may realise we cannot do it all on our own and that a care home is going to be the best answer. Therefore, when a care home is negligent, it could be extremely upsetting and difficult to come to terms with. If you or someone you love has experienced care home negligence, give us a call today for more information. Incidences that could constitute negligence could include someone with mobility needs not being assisted correctly, leading to injury, or perhaps mismanagement of bedsores that leads to a worsening of the condition. If care home standards are not met and you or a loved one suffers with their health directly due to negligence, then this could result in a claim.
There is no denying that the childbirth injury statistics do not make pretty reading. This is supposed to be the best moment in a person’s life and for some people, it could sadly end up being the worst. This could be even more devastating when the injury could have been avoided. If the midwife has made an error and this has caused a birth injury, there is a chance you could claim. If you or your baby’s health has suffered because signs of distress were not picked up on, or you and baby were not correctly monitored, or birthing tools were incorrectly utilised, please call us to talk over whether you may have a claim for compensation.
What is the surgical negligence definition? This means that a mistake is made during surgery that could have been avoided. There are always going to be risks with operations, but this does not mean that negligence should result in you being left out of pocket financially and suffering symptoms that you would not have had to bear had negligence not occurred. Examples of this could range from surgeries being carried out on the wrong limb to cases whereby there have been retained surgical instruments.
Aside from the examples that have already been mentioned, our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could well be of use to you when it comes to cancer negligence as well. Cancer is a disease that sometimes spreads at a rapid pace. Because of this, it could easily end up progressing to a stage whereby more intensive treatment is needed or even fatal injuries happen if it is not treated properly. This could happen if cancer is not diagnosed correctly or quickly. It could also happen if the incorrect treatment is given.
You may also want to make a claim with our panel as an alternative to medical negligence solicitors in Nottinghamshire if you have experienced hospital negligence. This could include negligence in both private and public hospitals. There are a lot of different ways that this could happen. Of course, we have discussed negligence that has happened because of surgery mistakes, as well as birth injuries and illnesses. However, there are plenty of other ways this could happen. For example, this also includes cases whereby people have experienced an illness or infection because of poor hygiene standards.
Aside from this, dentist negligence claims could be made in a number of different cases as well. Examples of this could include incidents whereby the wrong tooth has been extracted, a healthy tooth has been damaged during treatment, and circumstances whereby the symptoms of oral cancer have not been picked up on. Negligent dental advice also falls into this category as well. Essentially, if your dentist has made a mistake that could have been avoided and this has had a negative impact on your health, you could potentially have a claim.
Finally, our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could also give some assistance with general practice medical negligence cases. When someone is not feeling very well, the natural step could be to book an appointment with their local GP or doctor. We might expect that the doctor is going to be able to assess our symptoms and help us to figure out what is wrong. They will then usually provide you with a prescription for medication, give you advice on managing your symptoms or they could recommend that you go and see a specialist. If a mistake is made here, this could set treatment off on the wrong path. If your health has been negatively impacted because a doctor has ignored clear symptoms, not examined you properly or not followed the correct protocol for treating you, you might wish to call our panel for assistance.
