What is Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence is a legal term that refers to a healthcare professional’s failure to provide appropriate care or treatment to a patient, resulting in harm or injury. Negligence can occur in various healthcare settings, such as hospitals, clinics, and private practices. The healthcare professional could be a doctor, nurse, surgeon, or any other medical professional.

Examples of Medical Negligence

Medical negligence can take many forms such as:

  • Medical misdiagnosis
  • Medication and prescription mistakes
  • Defective medical products
  • Errors incurred during surgery
  • General practitioner negligence
  • Injuries incurred during childbirth
  • Newborn and infant injuries or death
  • Anaesthesia error
  • Hospital negligence

To prove medical negligence, it must be shown that the healthcare professional breached their duty of care, which is the legal obligation to provide a certain standard of care, and that this breach caused harm to the patient.

If a patient has suffered harm or injury due to medical negligence, they may be able to make a claim for compensation. It is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible, as there are time limits for bringing a claim.

What medical negligence compensation am I entitled to?

If you have suffered harm or injury due to medical negligence, you may be able to claim compensation for a range of losses and expenses. The compensation available will depend on the nature and extent of your injuries, as well as other factors such as your age, income, and future earning capacity.

Compensation for medical negligence typically covers the following:

  • Medical and rehabilitation expenses: This includes the cost of medical treatment, surgery, medication, physiotherapy, and any other expenses related to your injury.
  • Loss of income: If you have been unable to work due to your injuries, you may be able to claim compensation for lost wages, as well as any future loss of earning capacity.
  • Pain and suffering: You may be able to claim compensation for the physical and emotional pain and suffering caused by your injury.
  • Care and assistance: If you require ongoing care and assistance, you may be able to claim compensation for the cost of a carer or home modifications.
  • Other expenses: This can include travel expenses to attend medical appointments, as well as any other expenses related to your injury.

It is important to note that the process for claiming compensation for medical negligence can be complex, and it is recommended that you seek legal advice from a specialist medical negligence lawyer.
