Our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors has many years of experience dealing with medical negligence cases throughout the United Kingdom and we are well able to cover claims in Royal Leamington Spa despite not being based there. Below, we take a look at the common cases our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could work on.
You may be looking for medical negligence solicitors in Leamington Spa because you have experienced surgical negligence. While there is no denying that all surgeries come with risks, this does not mean that a surgeon or surgical team should be negligent. There are many ways surgical negligence could happen, from retained surgical instruments to an operation being carried out on the wrong part of the body. If this has led to you becoming more ill, injured or requiring further treatment that you would not have otherwise needed, then you might want to call us to see if we could help with a claim.
When it comes to claims handled by our panel of solicitors, there is no denying that birth injuries could be some of the most upsetting and traumatic. There are many different ways that birth injuries could occur. The midwife could have failed to notice that you or your baby were in distress, for example, or they may not have diagnosed a maternal disease correctly. When making these claims, you could claim for the emotional trauma experienced as well as the physical injuries that have been sustained.
Our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors have experience in making an NHS hospital negligence claim, as well as private hospital claims. From Leamington Spa hospital to Royal Leamington Spa Rehabilitation Hospital, if you have experienced negligent treatment or care which has led to your health becoming worse, give us a call today for more details. Claims could include instances where:
- Infection could have been prevented if better hygiene standards had been in place.
- A doctor misdiagnosed you when you had clear symptoms of a recognisable disease/injury leading to the disease/injury becoming worse.
- You suffered a medication dispensary error which led to you suffering additional symptoms and did not treat the illness that you had.
You may also be thinking about making a claim if you or a loved one has experienced negligence at one of the nursing homes in Leamington Spa or care homes in Leamington Spa. There have been some horrible news stories of abuse in care homes in the UK in recent times. However, abuse is not the only thing that could lead to a claim. Negligence could happen in many ways, from medication errors to illnesses caused because of poor hygiene standards. If your loved one has suffered due to this kind of negligence in their care home or any other type of negligence, then you may wish to call us to see if you could claim.
When not feeling well, we might book an appointment to see our GP. If a mistake is made, for example, the wrong condition is diagnosed and you suffer needlessly, this may be classed as doctor negligence. The impact of this could range from minor to severe. An incorrect diagnosis when clear symptoms of acute disease are there could lead to severe, even life-threatening progression of a disease. Contact one of our expert legal advisors today to discuss your circumstances.
If you have experienced negligent dental treatment, you could call our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors for more information. There are many ways that a dentist in Leamington Spa could be negligent. Examples could range from failing to spot the signs of oral cancer to not carrying out a dental treatment correctly. If your oral health suffers because your dentist has been negligent, then you could look into making a claim.
Finally, another example of the common cases handled by our panel of solicitors are involving negligent cancer care and misdiagnosis. Cancer is a disease that may spread at a rapid pace. Because of this, it is often so important that is diagnosed quickly and that the correct treatment is provided. If this does not happen, cancer could spread to parts of the body that it would not have. In some cases, this could be fatal. Or, if the wrong treatment has been given for the cancer, and you suffer needlessly because of it, then a claim could be something you could look into making.
