What is Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence can have serious consequences for the person who has been unfortunate enough to be a victim of it. There may be long term health issues that arise out of misdiagnosis of a condition, for example. In extreme cases, negligence can even lead to loss of life because the warning signs aren’t spotted early enough or a procedure is carried out badly. Some of the most common areas where medical negligence occurs are:
You are misdiagnosed or there is late diagnosis of your condition.
You are prescribed the wrong drugs or the wrong dosage.
You are given the wrong surgical procedure or the operation is carried out badly.
Medical negligence can occur across a wide range of different health care provision from your local GP, hospital surgery and midwifery services to physiotherapy, pharmacy and other support. Mistakes can occur because of lack of knowledge or training, because someone is too tired or too rushed to do their job properly, or because someone is incompetent.
If you have been the victim of medical negligence, it can have a huge impact. You may have been left with an injury that is difficult to get over. It could be that adaptations need to be made to your home or your lifestyle so that you can cope with daily living. You might not be able to work so suffer from loss of earnings. You could need counselling or help from a physiotherapy team to get over your problem. Perhaps you lost a loved one due to medical negligence and now want to make a claim.
