What is a medical negligence claim?

You can only make medical negligence claims if you can prove that your injury was a direct result of receiving medical care that was below an acceptable standard.  Providing evidence that your injury would have been prevented if you had received the appropriate medical attention is a complicated and difficult task. So, if you are thinking about taking legal action, ensure you get the advice of  medical negligence solicitors who specialise in medical negligence claims.

You have three years from the date on which you believe that you received negligent treatment or, if later, three years from the date when you knew, or you ought to have known, that you had received negligent treatment to issue court proceedings. An injured minor child has three years from the date of their 18th birthday to issue court proceedings.

There is a vast number of situations and reasons as to how and why medical negligence occurs which you can consider a claim, including:

  • Misdiagnosis or failed diagnosis of a condition
  • A mistake made during an operation
  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Performed treatment without consent
  • Failing to fully inform the patient of associated risks with a procedure or medication
