From GP negligence in the UK to securing NHS cancer misdiagnosis payouts, our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could have the experience to help you in a wide range of cases. Let’s take a look at some examples below so you could get a better understanding of what could constitute a successful claim for medical negligence.
The first example that we are going to take a look at is dental negligence. Despite the fact that you may be able to use a dental negligence claim calculator online, it is impossible to give you an accurate figure of the payout you will receive because it does differ based on your circumstances. After all, there are many different ways that dental negligence could happen, and injuries could range from minor to severe. Moreover, incidents could range from cases whereby your dentist has extracted the wrong tooth to incidents whereby evident signs of conditions like oral cancer have been missed and this has caused further damage to your health or worsened your prognosis.
You maybe thinking of using medical negligence solicitors in Redbridge for a surgical negligence claim but it would be wise to ensure that you do not limit yourself by location as a solicitor with expert knowledge in the area of clinical negligence your case falls under maybe the other side of the country. While there is no denying that all surgeries come with risks, this does not mean you shouldn’t take action if negligence happens and it leads to your health being impacted in a negative way. Negligence could range from cases whereby the wrong operation has been carried out, requiring you to have more surgery, damage to healthy organs or limbs, to cases involving retained surgical instruments. If the negligence of surgical staff has had a direct effect on your health, then call our advisors for more information.
This is something that could impact the mother, baby, or both. These cases could be very traumatic and difficult to come to terms with. Negligence could happen because the midwife or the medical professional in question did not notice that the baby or mother were in distress leading to harm to mother or baby’s health. However, there are different scenarios, for example, not diagnosing pre-eclampsia causing the mother’s health to deteriorate or surgeons performing a negligent C-section causing damage to internal organs.
When we are not feeling very well, the first thing that we might choose to do is book an appointment to see our GP. We might then rely on our GP to provide us with a diagnosis and to ensure that we end up on the right treatment path. Often, this will mean that they give us a prescription or that they book us in to see a specialist, or both. Therefore, if a mistake is made, this could cause our health to deteriorate, and there are two reasons why this is the case. The first is that we do not get the treatment that we need as quickly as we need it and an illness worsens. The second is because we end up receiving the incorrect treatment leading to new symptoms. The impact of this could range from minor to severe. If a doctor hasn’t talked to you about your symptoms, has failed to take the usual steps to diagnose you such as examining you thoroughly, or has not followed standards of care deemed acceptable, and your health has suffered, you could potentially have a claim.
Aside from the examples that have already been mentioned, our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could also provide assistance when it comes to nursing home claims. The decision to send someone we love to a care home may not be easy but we could do so because we might believe that this is going to be best for them. Therefore, when negligence happens, it could be something that could be very difficult to come to terms with. This is especially the case for those who have had loved ones who have been the victims of care home abuse. However, if care home standards are not met in another way, such as assistance with mobility, care of bedsores etc and a person’s health deteriorates because of this negligence towards these standards, this could also lead to a valid claim for care home negligence.
Cancer is a disease that sometimes spreads at a rapid pace. Therefore, if it is not diagnosed quickly or effectively, the results could be severe and sometimes even fatal. If a negligent diagnosis or treatment issues has led to a poorer prognosis or further treatment being required when it would not have been needed otherwise, then it could be possible to make a claim.
