Medical negligence or malpractice can result in a personal injury and if you have suffered as a result of medical negligence you are entitled to make a claim for your injury.
Usually this type of injury is caused when a medical professional such as a doctor, surgeon, nurse, or dentist acts in a way which causes injury or suffering to someone which would otherwise have been avoidable.
This can result in a new injury or the deterioration of an existing injury or condition.
Making a claim
Medical negligence can be caused by but not limited to the following:
- Failure to take appropriate action on receipt of test results
- Poor performance or errors during a procedure
- Failure to advise of risks associated with procedures and medications
- Administrative errors
- Incorrect or unnecessary procedures carried out
- Birth injuries caused to child and/ or mother
- Medication / prescription errors
- Poor hygiene standards resulting in disease or infection, and
- Poor aftercare provided
Medical professionals have a duty to act responsibly and take appropriate levels of care when looking after a patient’s health and wellbeing. If they have failed to do so and you have suffered as a result you may be entitled to make a claim. However, it is necessary to acknowledge that not all medical mistakes constitute medical negligence. As this type of personal injury is somewhat more complex than other personal injuries it is even more important to seek the advice of a professional.
