Claims For Clinical Negligence Panel Of Solicitors Could Handle

Clinical negligence can take many forms. Put simply, a doctor has a duty of care towards you and if they failed to meet this duty, and you were harmed in a way that was avoidable, then medical negligence could have occurred. For example:

  • A surgeon slips, and cuts a patient
  • A dentist harms a patient during dental surgery
  • A GP fails to ensure that a patient receives treatment, causing their condition to worsen
  • A mother or baby is injured due to negligence during childbirth
  • A resident of a care or nursing home suffers an injury due to an accident caused by negligence
  • Treatment of a serious illness such as cancer is delayed due to a wrongful or delayed diagnosis, causing the health of the patient to suffer

All of these are valid examples of how a negligent act can result in harm to a patient, that could be the basis of a medical negligence claim.

Surgery Gone Wrong – Surgical Errors

There are a number of ways that a patient can be harmed during, or after a surgical procedure. For example:

  • Mistakes made by a surgeon, causing injuries
  • Errors made by the anaesthetist causing an adverse reaction or even death
  • Lax post-op care, leading to the patient contracting an infection

These all show how mistakes made during or after an operation, can result in the patient being harmed in a way that could be the basis for a medical negligence lawyer processing a claim.

Nursing Home Neglect Or Negligence

All nursing or care homes are required to provide residents with a very specific minimum standard of care. This standard is enforced by multiple layers of rules and regulations. When care home staff are negligent, due to being overworked, or under-trained, this can result in an injury to a resident. Should this be the case, it could be possible for a personal injury solicitor to process a claim on behalf of the injured party.

Cancer Negligence Claims

Cancer is an illness that needs prompt treatment, using advanced methods such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, to give the victim the best chance possible of making a recovery. When a misdiagnosis or a late diagnosis is made, it could mean that treatment is delayed, the cancer can get worse, and in the most extreme cases, result in the death of the patient.

Should this be the case, it may be possible for a solicitor to seek NHS cancer misdiagnosis payouts on behalf of the cancer patient and/or their dependants.

Birth Negligence Claims – Midwife Errors

When a midwife, doctor or nurse attending a birth, makes a mistake, the mother, baby or both could be injured. Birth negligence stories often indicate injuries such as:

  • Injuries to the mother – perineal tears, fractured pelvis or damaged pelvic muscles, cuts, lacerations and scarring
  • Injuries to the baby – medical conditions such as cerebral palsy, permanent brain damage, fractured bones, cuts, lacerations and scarring

When injuries such as these are the result of negligence, then it could be possible for a claim to be made against the negligent medical professional responsible.

Dental Negligence Claims

The definition of dental negligence could be any instance when a patient is harmed by a dentist or dental nurse in a way that could have bee avoided. For example:

  • The dentist makes a mistake with a surgical device, such as a drill, and cuts the patient
  • Treatment results in healthy teeth being damaged or lost
  • Treatment results in cuts or bruising to the face or neck
  • Injuries that result in permanent scarring and disfigurement
  • Infections or damage to the gums or jaw

These are ways that people could be injured through dental negligence, and which could leave them with a valid cause to make a claim for compensation against the person responsible.

GP Doctor Negligence Claims

A GP has two primary care roles. Firstly, to diagnose and treat minor injuries and illnesses, prescribing medication or treatment as necessary. Secondly, in the case of major illnesses or serious injuries, to refer the patient to the correct healthcare unit for treatment. When a GP fails in either of these two roles, it can mean the patient receives the wrong treatment, or even goes untreated. This can, of course, have a detrimental effect on the patient’s health. In cases such as this, it could be possible to claim for compensation against a negligent doctor.

Hospital Negligence Claims

There are many ways that a person can come to harm due to negligence whilst attending the hospital. For example:

  • Being exposed to radiation or dangerous chemicals, causing health issues
  • Receiving shoddy treatment, such as a haphazardly applied plaster cast, that fails to treat an injury
  • Being administered the wrong medication, or the wrong dose of medication, causing an adverse reaction

These are examples of how people who have suffered hospital negligence, could potentially have a valid reason to make a claim for compensation.

If you use a No Win No Fee claims service to have your personal injury claim processed, you won’t need to pay anything when your claim is started. You also don’t pay anything while it is processed. If the solicitor fails to get you any compensation, then you still don’t pay anything. You only pay a fee when the legal firm has received a compensation payment for you, known as a success fee. At this stage, they will automatically deduct their fee from the money they received for you, and then they will pass you the remainder. So there really is no financial risk when you use this kind of claims service.
