How do solicitors build a robust case?
Despite the lower burden of proof, your medical negligence solicitor must still work hard to prove your claim. Since your claim is based around a medical mistake, the most important evidence will come from your medical records and the opinion of an independent medical expert.
The medical expert is charged with providing an independent assessment of the medical facts surrounding your claim. While each case is different, you can expect the expert to:
- Review your medical notes
- Peer review your case, including the treatment prescribed by your clinician and any subsequent damage to your health
- Judge whether medical negligence had occurred
- Ascertain whether the clinical mistake has caused you harm
- Give you at least one physical examination
- Give a clear prognosis informing you what, if any, long term effects the medical error may have on you
- Figure out what further treatment and support could be needed in the future.
During this time, the medical negligence solicitor may also be gathering witness statements. This might include statements of fact from family members involved in the process, clinical staff and others present at the scene.
All this effort allows your solicitor to build a good picture of what happened and gather strong evidence to prove that medical negligence took place.
