Medical negligence guidelines state that in order to make a claim for medical negligence compensation, the following must be proven:
- That there was a medical practitioner – patient relationship existing, therefore the practitioner owed the patient a duty of care.
- That the duty of care was not upheld because the medical practitioner provided substandard care. This could be a medical mistake or a misdiagnosis of an illness, for example.
- That the substandard care resulted in the patient’s existing medical condition worsening, or patient becoming injured or ill unnecessarily.
In general, our panel of medical negligence solicitors could handle any sort of claim, as long as you were injured in some way by a medical professional and that this could have been avoided.

If you have been injured or left ill because of medical negligence, you could be entitled to claim compensation. The first step to making a medical negligence claim, is to have an assessment by a doctor. Off the back of your assessment, the doctor will create a medical report which will define your injuries, what treatment you will need going forward and what effect you undue injuries are likely to have on your ongoing quality of life. Your medical negligence solicitor will use the medical report to value your claim. Medical Negligence Assist can organise a medical assessment for you with a doctor from our panel in your area.

Most people’s first point of call when they are in need of medical treatment is their local general practitioner (GP). Your GP is responsible for providing treatment for minor illnesses or injuries, or referring patients to a specialist department, if they are showing signs of a more serious condition. Most GPs provide a good service to their local community, however, GP malpractice can and does happen. Examples of GP malpractice can include a GP prescribing the wrong dosage of medication, a GP injuring a patient with a needle or a GP misdiagnosing a patient’s condition and prescribing the wrong treatment.

As you already know, cancer is a disease that spreads and worsens over time. Therefore, if a GP fails to recognise the early signs of cancer and refer the patient to a specialist, or if an oncologist misdiagnoses a patient’s cancer, the patient may have to endure more aggressive forms of treatment such as chemotherapy, which would not have been necessary if the cancer was caught earlier. Unfortunately, misdiagnosis of cancer can cause a patient to die a death that would have been avoidable, had the cancer been caught on time.
If you have experienced misdiagnosed cancer, due to errors made by your GP, oncologist or other medical practitioner, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.
