Surgical procedures can be carried out for either medical necessity or for cosmetic reasons in either NHS hospitals or in private hospitals. Surgery necessarily carries risks, which the patient much be made fully aware of before consenting to the procedure, even if the operation is carried out properly. However in cases of surgical negligence the patient could be harmed by the doctors performing the surgery due if they breach their duty of care or surgical code of conduct. This could range from failure to properly administer anesthetic, damage to tissues and organs, failure to properly close up incisions and in extreme circumstances doctors may inadvertently operate on the wrong organ, or leave surgical equipment such as swaps and clamps inside the patient’s body after they have been closed up.
Medical malpractice arises if either the mother or the baby suffers harm because doctors have not adequately carried out their duties by monitoring the mother and babies health and reacting to signs of any health issues, or signs of distress and other issues during childbirth itself. Mothers could suffer from excessive blood loss or vaginal tearing during childbirth and babies could suffer bone fractures or hypoxia resulting in cerebral palsy during childbirth as a result of birth negligence.
Hospital’s and their staff have a duty of care to all those who come into the hospital as patients. If a patient falls ill as a result of inadequate hygiene causing an infection, if they suffer from the effects of inadequate nursing care such as a failure to provide adequate food and fluids or if they don’t regularly change dressings when required causing infection, then that patient could be entitled to then make a medical negligence claim.

Similar to hospital neglect claims, claims could be brought against caring and nursing homes in which residents have suffered harm as a result of substandard care. Those living in care homes are often dependent on staff for things like washing and dressing, eating their meals and staying hydrated, taking their medications and going to the toilet. If these things are neglected then they can suffer harm as a result. They are vulnerable to illnesses and infections without close care and attention and can suffer injuries from falls and accidents without being supervised by staff.

GP’s are the first health professionals most people see when they are affected by the symptoms of an illness and they play a vital role in ensuring that a patients symptoms are diagnosed and treated correctly. As such doctors mistakes can seriously derail your medical treatment and adversely affect your health outcomes. If Doctors fail to correctly or quickly diagnose your symptoms, prescribe an incorrect or inappropriate treatment or fail to refer you to a specialist and your health is affected, if their actions are proved to be negligent it may be classed as GP negligence. If a doctor has failed to diagnose or treat you correctly without a reasonable cause then you could have grounds for making a medical negligence claim for any unnecessary harm that is suffered.
Canary Wharf medical negligence claims can also include dental malpractice. Dental practitioners are also liable for any harm caused to their patients by malpractice. If a dentist makes mistakes during a procedure or fails to follow proven procedures and a patient suffers cosmetic damage, damage to gums, teeth and nerves it could not only result in pain and suffering but also financial losses.
Our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could assist you in making a cancer negligent claim if a medical professional negligently misdiagnosed your cancer and it caused you to suffer medical harm as a result. If your symptoms are not diagnosed quickly enough, or in some cases if the cancer was mistaken for another disease then the treatment you receive may be inadequate or come to late to prevent the cancer and its effects from worsening, possibly with fatal consequences. In some cases the doctor may not be at fault, but if you feel that your condition could have been diagnosed much earlier than it was and the delay in diagnosis has caused you to suffer more harm unnecessarily then you may have grounds to make a medical negligence claim.

One of the most important questions you can ask when dealing with a potential medical negligence solicitor for your case is “will my claim be no win no fee?” A No win No fee claim, otherwise known as a Conditional Fee Arrangement, is when a solicitor agrees not to charge you for their time and expenses if your claim is unsuccessful while also agreeing to take a certain fixed share of whatever compensation you receive if your claim is successful as payment. This is important as it effectively means you will have the personal injury solicitors services entirely free of charge if the case does not result in you receiving compensation, but it also means that the solicitor is highly confident that your case will be successful if they take your case on using this agreement.
If you have been affected by any of the medical negligence issues above, or any that we might not have mentioned, then contact us today. You may be eligible to make a personal injury claim.
