How do I know if I have a valid legal claim?
If you decide to press ahead with a compensation claim, your medical negligence solicitor will begin to investigate your case. To make a successful claim, your health solicitor must establish:
- Negligence – that the healthcare professional did something that fell below the standard of care expected of a reasonably competent clinician in the same field of medicine; and
- Causation – that the medical error caused you an injury, prolonged your treatment or made an existing medical condition worse.
This may sound very simple, and in other types of personal injury cases it is simple. However, medical negligence claims have a unique complexity. Patients who seek medical advice invariably will have experienced problems with their health before the medical mistake occurred. It can be challenging to show that the injuries suffered were the result of a medical error, and not simply a consequence of the underlying medical condition.
