    What is Medical Negligence?

    What is Medical Negligence?

    Medical Negligence is a term used to describe incidents in which medical professionals have failed to provide the high standard of care we expect to receive from them. In many cases, this negligence can result in a person suffering life-changing complications that have long-term health and financial implications. Whether your treatment was provided by the NHS or in a private setting, we may be able to help you.

    There are many ways medical negligence can occur, from misdiagnosis or inadequate treatment to substandard and incomplete aftercare. All of these can cause harm, injuries or suffering. Medical negligence can relate equally to existing conditions that become worse due to inadequate care or incorrect treatment. In 2018/19, the NHS reported receiving more than 10,000 new claims of clinical medical negligence, with the highest number of claims being made in the medical specialties of Obstetrics, Emergency Medicine, Orthopaedics and General Surgery.

    Start your claim today

    If you believe a medical or healthcare professional has failed to provide you with adequate care, be it through misdiagnosis, during surgery or in the aftercare process, and you can prove your injuries and/or suffering are a direct result of their actions, you will be eligible to make a claim. Get in touch with us today to discuss your case, and we will help you get the ball rolling.

    Start your claim today

    The most important step will be to get in touch with us as soon as possible. To be able to prove your case and ensure it is successful, we will need to obtain your medical records, including any X-rays, scans and test results. We will also need to take a detailed statement from you, as it will be up to you to prove that the care you received was negligent. We will also seek statements and opinions from other medical experts who can attest to the care you received being below the standard expected.

    When we have gathered all this evidence, we will look at three key areas:

    Breach of duty – proving that the medical professional failed to meet the legal standard of duty of care to you.

    Causation – proving that the treatment you received was the cause of your injury (or caused your condition to get worse).

    Damages or losses – giving clear evidence of the harm you have suffered as a result of the negligence, and calculating any financial losses or expenses you have incurred because of it.

    All of our client’s cases are no win, no fee. No win no fee essentially means that if we do not win your case, you do not pay any fees. By choosing to pursue a no win no fee claim for medical negligence, you will have complete assurance at all times.

    The time limit for making a medical negligence claim is typically three years from the date of the negligent incident, with a few exceptions. In other words, your case must be brought within three years of the negligence happening, or your ‘date of knowledge’ that something was not right.

    However, if you are making the claim on behalf of a child who has suffered due to medical negligence, you can claim at any point until they are 18 years old. After that, they can make a claim for themselves, but they must do so before they turn 21.

    The time limit does not apply to people with limited metal capacity – a claim for them can be made at any point.

    Yes, of course you can discuss a claim on behalf of someone else if they are a child (under 18), someone with limited mental capacity, or someone who has died and whose estate you are dealing with.

    It is very unlikely that your case will be taken to court, but there is a possibility it will be.

    According to the NHS Resolution Report for 2018/19, 70.7% of claims were settled without the need for a formal court proceeding. Just under one-third of claims ended up in litigation, and less than 1% went to full trial.
