Healthcare Negligence Claims
Medical negligence can happen at any stage during your treatment and care. All practitioners in every medical discipline, including general practice, dentistry, and cosmetics, have the potential to deliver a standard of care which falls short of what is acceptable. Even the most experienced and respected professionals can make errors which can have a terrible impact on their patient’s health and well-being.
What is Healthcare Negligence?
In its simplest definition, healthcare negligence is when a patient is injured or harmed due to substandard medical treatment from professionals. It may happen in an NHS hospital or care home, or a private cosmetic surgery clinic. Whenever there is a medical duty of attention that is breached whether the result is temporary, or fatal.
Examples of healthcare negligence can include:
- GP negligence.
- Birth injury negligence.
- Eye injury negligence.
- Surgical negligence.
- Delayed Treatment.
- Prescription negligence.
The list of ways a patient can suffer healthcare negligence is inexhaustible. However they all have at their root that there was a breach of the duty of care, and this caused, or at least significantly contributed to, a patient’s injuries.
