You’re in safe hands…
When undertaking medical treatment, we are often at our most vulnerable. Thankfully though doctors, nurses, clinicians and other healthcare professionals are on hand to help us back on to the road to recovery.
However, there are times when things don’t go to plan and this can result in a case of clinical negligence. If you have suffered an injury due to either the wrong, delayed or inadequate treatment, there may be a case to answer.
Clinical negligence can occur in any healthcare setting, whether it be at your GP’s practice, an NHS hospital, private clinic, dental practice or even pharmacy.
Common examples of clinical negligence include:
- A delay in diagnosing an illness/ condition
- Delayed treatment
- Incorrect diagnosis
- Wrongfully dispensed prescriptions
- Wrongful birth
- Brain damage at birth
- Neglect while in hospital or residential care home
- Inadequate after-care following weight loss surgery
- Sudden and unexpected death
Clinical negligence claims are often complex and no two cases are ever the same. Details which may seem inconsequential to you, may actually be significant to us and your case, this is why we take the time to listen and understand your case. We find this approach not only improves your chance of success, but highlights sooner those instances where there is no case to answer.
